WHAT IS PINPRESS?

Driven by electromagnetic processes, PinPress is a one-size-fits-all mould designed to save manufacturers time and money. Rather than using and switching several moulds during changeovers, PinPress goes solo in today's +$100 Million equipment manufacturing market. This market revolves around the latest trend, Just-in-Time manufacturing, creating a window of opportunity to cut downtime in half and streamline manufacturing operations.


build

Control Device

The control mechanism is a linear, stackable, Lorentz force actuator. The entire mechanism for PinPress is modular, allowing it to scale to each users needs as each pin can be scaled down to sub millimeter pin size.

lock

Locking Device

The locking mechanism is a fluidic system underneath each pin, similar to hydraulics. This enables PinPress to withstand massive manufacturing pressures, it couples with the pins after the surface has formed its shape, and holds the surface in place without consuming power.

layers

Skin Layer

The skin layer isolates the pins from the environment and provides a smooth surface finish, minimizing surface artifacts such as indents left from the pins.

THE OPPORTUNITY


Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.

Market

The trend in manufacturing is Just-in-Time (JIT), which increases the number of changeovers. Reducing the time required for a changeover means greater uptime and more profit.

The market for equipment manufacturing is +$100 Million market in Canada alone. U.S. and China combined is valued at over $550 Billion.

Extrusion

school
Smart Tools

Die Cutting and Extrusion is used to squeeze, press and cut products into shape. For every unique shape, a custom die is needed.

Manufacturers require more data so they can better monitor their manufacturing lines and compensate for potential issues before they arise.

Downtime

Mould

Unexpected Downtime in manufacturing lines occur due to the need to make fine adjustments to meet product specifications, in turn costing millions.

A fluid is poured into a mold and hardened. Like dies, each mold has a unique shape and requires customization.

THE TECHNOLOGY


Engineered for success.

Changing surface

Instead of a continuous surface, PinPress is a surface of tiny motors that can change it's shape on the fly.

Inline Adjustments

With PinPress's shape changing technology, Manufacturers will be able to make in-line adjustments that ensure the quality of their product, without downtime.

Reduce Costs

With a reduction in changeover, downtime, material consumption, energy consumption and labor costs, PinPress saves Manufacturers money.

Motors

In order to make PinPress a reality, we've developed the smallest, stackable motors in the world, customizable to each Manufacturer's needs.

Locking

We use a combination of mechanical and fluidic locking systems to give PinPress the strength necessary to withstand the pressures of manufacturing.

Skin

Stretching an elastic, rubber-like layer over the surface smoothens PinPress to create features smaller than the motor size.
