With the many hurdles of producing a a new instrument during the Pandemic, Expressive E have updated on the Osmose production plans with a move to begin a parallel production in France. Read the update below for the full details.
After having mastered the challenge of organizing the whole prototyping phase from a distance due to COVID-19, the conception phase of Osmose is completed since end of September 2020.
We hoped that the situation would start to normalize, but due to the renewed lockdown in France and the borders remaining closed, we are still not able to send our engineers to oversee the industrial production at the factory in Shanghai. Therefore, we took the decision to set up a mirrored parallel production line locally in France. While production of the units will still take place at our industrial partner exclusively, the mirrored production line in France will allow us to remotely oversee and manage all the quality-control processes in really good conditions despite the circumstances.
In January 2021 we received all the industrial parts of the first Osmoses. The parts were tested and assembled with the greatest care. The final results were very conclusive, and the quality of the parts once assembled in the final product functioned perfectly. We are currently working on the final industrial adjustments phase.
