Industrial mass, and some trash
Doing so gives us about 6 X 10m of floor space which is already filling up with hotplates, scaffolding, the IR chamber, and several items needed to design and develop the semi-automated machine I have in mind for the center of this area.
This tool requires some electronic controls and feed motors, and a rotary cutting die. I'm going to try to save a lot of money by building some of it here.
The edge tape machine will bond the top and bottom sheets together, very precisely, very evenly, and cut each sleeve to length. The current design calls for a feed rate of 200-400 units per day over about 1 to 2 hours of run time, after setup.
We don't want to create an overcapacity. Just the right amount that we can make, and sell, if we have a steady flow of manufacturing, packaging and sales once we hit the steady state.
The object to my right is the trash container, and that's our old blue warehouse behind me.
