We are designing an automation suite for the iStill Mini. The reasons? Improved training and recipe capabilities. We want to get the training experience as close to running the bigger automated production units as possible. And it will make recipe development easier. Start a run, decide on cuts, push the associated button, and the automation and robotization remembers your choices, and your automated run program is ready. At the push of a button? Yes, that easy.
We have been working on the automation suite for the better part of 6 months now and expect to release this option in the 3rd of 4th quarter of 2022. We are currently beta testing.
The automation is an option on new iStill Mini purchases. It can also be retrofitted to existing new gen iStills Mini. In 2023 we’ll make an upgrade kit to the automation suite, so that all of the older gens of iStills Mini can also be outfitted with it.
We expect huge demand for this option. Given current global component shortages, we also expect to be able to only deliver limited numbers of the automation suite. At least in the beginning. Maybe we can muster 10 upgrade packages per quarter in the end of 2022 and in the first half of 2023. When component shortages lift, indicatively towards the end of 2023, we could ramp up production to 20 upgrade packages per quarter.
We are therefore managing a registration list. First come, first served. If you want to order, please reach out and register via:
