Face shields for the Luxembourgish Ministry of Health and Army
What we did?
- Nylon (MJF PA12)
The coronavirus pandemic causes a shortage on personal protective equipment for health care professionals. With the help of our Luxembourgish industrial partners, such as GCL Technologies and Lettrage Reding, we decided to step in and support our local authorities in fighting the COVID-19.
The provided face shields are designed to protect the health care professionals, who treat the patients in critical condition. The shield is fixed on the forehead, protects the entire face and keeps the caregivers safe. This is an important measure to safeguard the capacity of the health care system.
The face shields, designed by Prusa, are being 3D printed in Nylon (PA12) using Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) Technology. As a result, our face shields can be sterilized without losing its shape, flexibility or function.
The face shields were donated to the Luxembourgish Ministry of Health and Army.
