Fluity began out of desperation. As mechanical, robotics, and mechatronics engineers, our team routinely suffered manufacturing delays first-hand which slowed technical innovation. Working with fast-paced R/D timelines, we regularly outsourced same-day CNC machining work or made parts ourselves on the shop floor. Innovation runs on expediency, which neither of these options were.
We're not just mechanical focused––our founders each come from software engineering backgrounds. Therefore, we knew quite clearly that there was a superior way to machine parts. Our first prototypes began as tools we developed for ourselves to expedite our public research at the University of Michigan, and private development at the startups we worked for. Soon after, at the urge of early, committed customers and investors, we founded Fluity as a vehicle to commercialize our solution for the manufacturing industry.
