Many industries rely on PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to keep their workers safe, but the COVID-19 crisis has escalated that need to entirely new levels. DI Labs has a large client in the food processing industry that must now provide face shields to all of its front line workers in order to maintain safe operations. With much at stake, they required an immediate solution, and off-the-shelf face shields weren’t working.
“Within days from meeting with the client, we were in full production of face shields tailored to their ergonomic and safety requirements.”
In just a few days, our DI Labs team designed a custom face shield for the unique working conditions of the food processing industry. Our design is lightweight, easy to assemble, and provides ample room for airflow, which adds comfort and eliminates fogging. Within days from meeting with the client, we were in full production of face shields tailored to their ergonomic and safety requirements. We developed a prototype, iterated the design and produced thousands of shields on a timeline that would have been impossible without additive manufacturing.
