Getting hardware teams from designs to manufactured products.
In this interview series, we host hardware manufacturing professionals, hardware founders, and engineers to talk about the journeys of people who build products, product design principles, DFM guidelines, new materials and processes, working with manufacturers, common mistakes, and much more!
#12 Matching Technologies to Supply Chain Needs
Supply chains benefit from digital technologies.
But with all the tools in the market, it’s confusing to match them with practical needs.
How can you know what’s relevant, without making it your second job?
In this episode, we discussed these challenges and ways to overcome them.
#11 Finding Product-Market fit in Hardware
Understanding what product to build is hard, and in hardware, it's even harder. Nohtal pivoted his hardware startup and made big bets on an entirely different market, which paid off. Nohtal explained how they identified what product to build, and analyzed the lessons they learned along the way.
#10 Manufacturing Digital Transformation, Done Light
Chris Luecke is a podcaster and founder at Manufacturing Happy Hour and Business Leader at Fiix software. We talked about driving digital transformation in the manufacturing industry and overcoming challenges in making it happen, how can companies lnow what to focus on, and more.
#9 Applying Key Hardware Design Considerations
Nicholas Nadeau is the CTO of Halodi Robotics, a company that builds humanoid robots for different purposes like safety or medical treatment. We talked about different considerations that they needed to take into account and how they applied them while designing robots that should operate among humans and interact with them.
#8 How to Benefit from Metal Additive Manufacturing
How can additive manufacturing (3D printing) change the manufacturing world? Yash Bandari is the Business Development Manager at Additive Technologies and Co-founder of Meltio. We talked about the actual applications of additive manufacturing, specifically about metal and large-scale additive manufacturing, where you should consider additive over traditional technologies and where you shouldn't.
#7 How Supply Chain Disruptions Affect Product Design
Niels Jul Jacobsen is the CEO of Capra Robotics. Niels has tens of years of industry experience, so it was particularly interesting to hear his perspective on how recent supply chain disruptions deeply affect hardware businesses. Niels sees unique ways in which supply chain challenges affect product design and manufacturing today, and tells how he and his company, Capra Robotics, adapt to them.
