Face shield

Posted on

As a result of the Corona/Covid-19 pandemic there is a growing shortage in medical resources such as mouth masks and face shields. Several initiatives have sprung up to produce these products in an alternative way. Laser cutting and 3D printing are two technologies being applied for this. For example the Prusa project from Czech Republic in which both techniques are being used. *

At Snijlab we are developing the idea to produce face shields at a larger scale. Our aim is to produce all parts by means of laser cutting to optimize our production capacity and minimize production time. . Last weekend we have made some prototypes. We are currently talking with medical institutions to start a first production run whereby hygiene and sterilisation during the production and distribution process is of utmost importance. When the final production drawings are ready we will make them available open-source so anyone can have them laser cut.
