K-Pak Production Update: Test Units in Field!

Success targets in the lab have been met for our first shipment of test units and we’re excited to announce that our select group of K-Pak product testers now each have a unit in their possession.

K-Pak Production Update: PCB Test Fixtures

Just prior to the assembly of each K-Pak unit, there is a step where we need to test the PCB’s as a group (all 5 at once), to determine if there are any issues. On occasion, there can be a single component or cable that is bad, for example. While it is possible…

K-Pak Production Update: Leak Testing

As you may have read on the K-Pak website, we intend for our case to be water-resistant, to be at parity with the GoPro Standard Case (which claims water resistance up to 3 meters, or 10 feet). In doing so, we take every precaution during the design and engineering staged to build in features that provide that function. So even when…

K-Pak Production Update: Parts!

Another aspect of the production process is “sourcing”, or procuring off-the-shelf parts. In the K-Pak product we have a number of off the shelf components that we have sourced. Some of them are, for example: batteries, O-rings, wrist straps, drawstring pouch, USB cord, GoPro adapter mount, stainless buttons, to name a few.

K-Pak Production Update: PCB Fabrication

We are pleased to say that the first 2,000 sets of PCB’s (Printed circuit boards) have been manufactured at our CM’s facility in Northern California! The PCB manufacturing is comprised of several steps. The first step is what is called the “fabrication” of the PCB, which means that the bare PCB (without components) needs to me made first.

K-Pak Production Update: Cases and PCBA’s

The best way to describe the K-Pak as a manufactured product is in terms of its main components. One half of the product is made of the plastic and metal parts, which we refer to as the enclosure - with the other half being the electronics. The injection molds and...
