As the COVID-19 crisis continues to roll on, we have been actively participating in an initiative for NHS Trusts. For this particular initiative, we partnered with our sister company Springfield Solution. Using our 3D printing capabilities, we are printing masks to provide parts to make PPE face masks for the NHS.
More About the Initiative
The 3DCrowd initiative is helping frontline organisations by providing PPE Face Shields to NHS Trusts across the country. For example, this last weekend, over 39,000 Face Shields were delivered to 90 NHS trusts. These Face Shields are crucial in helping to protect our frontline staff during the COVID-19 crisis.
Here are the current facts and figures from the initiative so far:
- Over 6000 volunteers with more signing up every day.
- 80,000 face shields in production.
- 500,000 face shield requests.
How Did We help?
Using our 3D Printing capabilities, we were tasked with producing the RC3 headband and reinforcement section of the COVID-19 Face Masks. We did this by utilising our 3D Makerbot printer and donating all materials and our time for free.
We are continuing to work with the 3DCrowd initiative and encourage any other initiatives looking to provide equipment to frontline organisations to reach out to us and see if we can help or assist in any way.
