Stratasys ramps up production of 3D printed personal protection equipment for medical needs in fight against Covid-19
Stratasys Ltd. announced a global mobilization of the company’s 3D printing resources and expertise to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, spanning its Stratasys, GrabCAD, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing and partner network with donated printing capacity across all regions. The initial focus was on providing thousands of disposable face shields for use by medical personnel.
Stratasys set up a web page where organizations can request 3D printed products to help with the crisis, offer 3D printing capacity, or request 3D printers or material for medical- or safety-related purposes.
The company also worked on an initiative led by anesthesiology residents of Massachusetts General Hospital ( CoVent-19 Challenge) to ask engineers and designers to help develop a new rapidly deployable ventilator and other innovative solutions to the ventilator shortage.
