In times of Covid-19 the DMRC and partners became active helping hospitals and social institutions with additive manufactured personal protective equipment. Together with medical device manufacturer Condor MedTec and several hospitals in and close to Paderborn, the project team defined the requirements for the faceshields.
In addition to the demands on functionality, the design considers the advantages and conditions of additive manufacturing in the laser sintering process. Thus, the design takes advantage of the design freedomes and integrates various functionalities. At the same time, process-related influences are considered in order to be able to produce a high number of parts in a reliable and cost-effective way.
