At Oat Foundry, we understand what it’s like to be faced with tough engineering problems because we have developed our own technologies. We have a wide range of engineering specialties in-house to help scale up your technology and production. We’re here to help you with your engineering needs.
Software & Hardware development
Oat Foundry manages software and hardware development projects using an Agile Process — allowing for more flexibility and a final product that fits real business needs. We suggest generating a ‘mini-scope’ for each sprint in this process.
Oat Foundry develops custom circuits, beginning with breadboards and ending with fully tested, branded, printed circuit boards. We work with Raspberry Pis on a daily basis – Our Split Flaps are powered by them!
As your business turns to automation, finding the right equipment can be a struggle. Our team has experience developing custom systems using pre-existing technology in the marketplace. Our team can provide peace of mind in knowing that you’re buying the right tool for the job and if it doesn’t exist, we’ll build it for you.
Experimental prototyping takes place during each of the mechanical, electrical, and software design phases. Prototypes are often used to test the integration of subsystems that span multiple disciplines. We follow a lean ‘Build, Test, Learn’ methodology to iterate as fast as possible.
Automation in Cannabis
We pull from a range of knowledge acquired while working on packaging brewing, and custom machinery design projects. Our team has experience working with rapidly growing cannabis processing and production companies. Whether you are looking to produce more edibles, automate production, or have a patented tech you’d like to expand, we can help.

Automating the Brewing Process
We love to drink coffee and we have experience brewing it – tons of it! We’ve worked with rapidly growing coffee companies to expand their technology and can do the same for you. We partnered with BKON to build an automated brewing machine that produces cold brew coffee 100x more efficiently. Click below to learn more about the BKON STORM project.
Making Brewing more Efficient
Since the early days, engineers at Oat Foundry have been avid homebrewers. We have expanded that knowledge into working with rapidly expanding craft beverage companies. Whether you are building new technology to revolutionize the industry or looking for engineering advice on brewing automation equipment, we can help.
All Systems Go!
Phase I: Discovery
No two projects are alike and so we always begin with discovery. Discovery is the process Oat Foundry engineers use to rapidly learn, develop requirements and specifications, contrast product features, build a bill of materials, and create wireframes and digital prototypes.
Phase II: Design & Development
During design and development, we create a detailed design and complete the full CAD model. The Design & Development Phase typically involves several rounds of iterative prototypes.
Phase III: Fabrication
Now that we know what it does and how it works, it’s time to get dirty. We created Oat Foundry’s production facility to generate the first “hundreds” of a new product prototype — the perfect throughput for a superuser pilot program. We have taken our own products to this point and can help with yours.
