There has been a sharp increase in demand for a wide range of supplies needed in the fight against COVID-19. The 3D printing community has stepped-up to help produce life-saving equipment.
Using 3D printing, many products can be manufactured at a high rate using a single digital design, and the design and quantity can be adjusted as needed. 3D printers can be immediately repurposed to make new products, making them key in rapid response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
This equipment produced is being used by hospital staff, GPs, pharmacists, paramedics, social care and other healthcare workers.
How BOFA helps
BOFA’s 3D PrintPRO range of extractors sit alongside 3D printers to capture and filter the harmful airborne gases and particulate generated during the 3D printing process.
Who we are helping
New ideas and innovations are being developed in the 3D printing market every day. Here are some products we know are being produced right now
Parts – such as connector valves for ventilators
Components for COVID-19 testing kits & custom medical components
Hands-free door handles
