It’s back to school!
And Fuel it is off to a great start in the school year! The first pre-series has passed and we are working hard to satisfy you as soon as possible.
The most important news this month is of course our victory in the Open4StartUp competition organized by Nicéphore Cité !
Human Resources Level
Fuel it recruits! We are now looking for a passionate developer who will be able to support us on the development.
We have published an offer on our website. Feel free to go take a look, and share it with your friends and family!
We are now the first website choice offered by google when requesting a connected oil tank sensor!
Thanks to the extensive work of our webmaster, we get the first result on many google searches. And it pays off! We are increasingly in demand. For the moment we have only worked on natural referencing. #SEO. We are waiting a little bit before we start on paid referencing. #SEA
We are launching a second industrial pre-series in order to respond as quickly as possible to the numerous requests.
On this new and last pre-series, we have made changes to the design of the electronic board (PCB). Minor electronic modifications as well as a shape modification for a better fit inside the sensor.
This pre-series will allow us to validate our new design before industrialization.
We are looking for several alternatives to make this second pre-series. Indeed, until now, 3D printing was for us a good alternative for prototyping but it is now proving too long and unsuitable.
Three new forms of sensor development are now available to us:
Plastic injection : Injection molding is a process for processing thermoformable materials, especially thermoplastics. Most parts are manufactured with plastic injection moulding machines: the plastic material is softened by heat, then injected into a mould and then cooled. This method remains very expensive for a pre-series.
Machining: A family of machining techniques for the manufacture of parts by chip removal. The principle of machining is to remove material in order to give the blank the desired shape and dimensions, using a machine tool.
Resin: The principle is to create a mold and then pour resin. A mold is a hollow object used to reproduce a model. It can be hollow (female mold) or raised (male mold) but in any case it is used to reproduce many times and in a strictly identical way the same part. The problem with this process is the development of the screw threads.
We are being talked about this month
Several press articles have quoted us in this beautiful month of September:
Don’t forget that we are always looking for a passionate developer to give you a better user experience on your Fuel it account.
We will keep you informed of further progress,
See you soon! 🙂
