Urban Machine closed its $5.6M seed round. The capital will be used to advance Urban Machine’s salvaging technology as well as make the equipment transportable. The portability of the machine opens a massive opportunity to expand the reach of UM’s business and reduce the carbon footprint of the operation. This funding also allows UM to hire additional software and mechatronics engineers. With this funding round closed, Urban Machine will exit stealth mode and begin field testing in Q1 2023.

Read More About It

Upon exiting stealth mode, Urban Machine has updated its website to include details about how The Machine removes metals and contaminants from reclaimed wood to make it premium lumber.

Q:   What do desks, countertops, siding, & concrete forms have in common?

        A: Salvaged Glulam can be used to create all of them.

Oregon State University tested salvaged lumber for structural mass timber in 2020. The results showed that salvaged lumber could be used as feedstock in any layer of panels, and it passed all examination benchmarks but stumbled with delamination requirements in non-commercial settings. This research proves that reclaimed lumber is a favorable material to create structural CLT.
