First Resonance, Inc., a downtown-based manufacturing technology startup, raised $3.5 million in Series A funding to develop its platform for multiple industries.

First Resonance said it has now raised a total of $5.3 million.

Founded in 2018, First Resonance aims to create manufacturing systems with better user interfaces for industries such as energy, transportation and aerospace.

The First Resonance team includes engineers from Space Exploration Technologies Corp., NASA, Zoox, Inc. and Toyota Motor Corp. Along with continued development of its products, the new funding will be used to bolster staffing, First Resonance said.

“First Resonance acquired over a dozen customers in 2020 as manufacturers looked for solutions to stay connected to their factories while working remotely and to get game-changing innovations to market faster and cost effectively,” Karan Talati, co-founder and chief executive of First Resonance, said in a press release.
