Solution, Name that Ware September 2019

The ware for September 2019 is an Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump. There’s actually a teardown of this ware on another blog. The gold strips are positions sensors for a syringe pump driven by a lead screw. I have been puzzling over design strategies for syringe pumps for a while, so I found looking at this ware to be particularly instructive.

Nobody even got close to guessing the ware, so there isn’t a winner this month. Thanks again to jackw01 for submitting this real stumper of a ware!

The Ware for August 2019 is shown below.

This was a victim of an *ahem* “minor water spill” in my lab (oops) so I tore it apart to check for damage. Fortunately, it was distilled water so it survived without any ill effects.
