The COVID-19-induced supply chain meltdown made it difficult to complete our facility: stainless steel, microcontrollers, and other critical components were extremely delayed if not almost impossible to find. Our founder was quoted as saying: “I would 10/10 not recommend building a high-energy radiation facility in the midst of an epochal supply chain implosion.”
But our team worked very hard, took on more of the integration work than expected, and employed novel strategies to hold to schedule as much as possible.
Finally, on August 17, we completed a long list of qualification and validation tests and were finally able to process our first several pallets (wrapped, as always, in NextBeam Orange).
