Our friends over at Synthtopia have posted another video shot at last week's Moogfest showing Moog's 'pop-up factory' onsite at the event. Moog moved their production line to Durham for the week and were assembling the newly introduced Minimoog Model D. Synthtopia talked with Moog's TJ Mills, who gave them a tour of their assembly process - this is what they have to say...
"Moog start from a collection of individual parts and pre-assembled components from suppliers. The circuit boards, for example, are supplied pre-populated, using a variety of new and 'new old stock' parts. And the metal components are supplied preshaped and drilled to Moog's specifications. In the video, TJ discusses what gets done at each stage of their assembly process, and how they calibrate and test the synthesizer once it is assembled.
State of the art for super-wide workflow enhancement
