M60-A SEQ 2 Production

L1000552.JPG

The Aluminium enclosures for the M60-A SEQ2 have all finished machining and are onto polishing and surface treatment now. The Brass & Aluminium backweights are still in machining and we expect them to be completed soon. We anticipate that the M60-A SEQ2 units will be completed by August.

Did you know each M60-A takes 10 hours to machine? This is just the top and bottom enclosure, not including the back piece. It’s then further polished, cleaned and anodised (or PVD coated)!

U80-A Buying Guide

RW-U80-WIDE-HERO-A.1702.jpg

Confused about what to order or what you will need to build a complete RW U80-A keyboard? We’ve created a guide to try and help out and show where you can purchase some of the components to make the keyboard your own! We also have a few other guides on how to adjust and make the typing experience for your keyboard unique.

The new USB A > C cables have arrived, 1.5m long in black braided with metal ends, laser etched.

Three of the six colours have been all anodized as of last week and we anticipate all colours to be finished properly. We will be arriving to our manufacturer next week for a final QC of all the boards before they’re shipped to home base!  Please note that we’ll be away from the office until the 11th of September and slower to reply to all support inquiries, but will do our best to answer as promptly as we can.

We are incredibly excited to announce our latest offering, the KOYU 65% Keyboard.   It’s an inspiration and evolution of our previous offerings, but entirely new in its own way - we’ve taken all the great aspects of the M60-A and integrated it into the KOYU. 

Integrated 4.5MM plate, In-Switch RGB, hotsockets, fixed layout, optional internal weight (same weight as M60-A / interchangeable). Launching mid-September.

M60-A SEQ 4 / M6-B / WAVE SEQ 2

Hey all! Apologies for the late update, been meaning to post one for a while but caught up in accounting, unfortunately, always the things you don't want to do. But back to what we love now!

M60-A PCB's

All the m60-A PCB's are in as of last week. Currently unboxing them all and sending them in batches to our in-house Hardware Engineer Wilba to program and test over the next few weeks.

They will then all be packaged and warehoused until the enclosures arrive.

M60-A Enclosures

All M60-A enclosures are all machined and currently undergoing Anodising by colour batch. A few colours have already been completed. All PVD coating and hand-mirror polishing have been complete on the brass components. We estimate all enclosures to finish around early September - and we will be visiting our suppliers to do a final QC before they are forwarded to our warehouse for final assembly and packaging. We will be away for a week and a half from the first week of September and reachable via our contact support email: support@rama.works. Sea-Freight should take roughly 2 weeks and we will promptly pack each order in batches of Country, Colour and Contents. 

All stainless steel fasteners and black hex screws are in and we are also creating a manual on how to assemble the M60-A. Here is an artwork we commissioned by the very talented Janne Iivonen which will be used as the front cover for the manual, it shows the diversity and playfulness we strive for within our products and customers.
