Application News Dutch

Application News Dutch PLA resins for Spanish mask production Total Corbion PLA, Gorinchem, the Netherlands, joined the fight against the Corona virus by donating Luminy PLA resins for the production of 3D printed medical devices and protective equipment. Smart Materials 3D in Spain launched the initiative and they receive the PLA resin to produce PLA filaments. In co-creation with companies like Fixit, 3D Printers, IMBIC and Clone Wars VLL the PLA filaments will be used to make medical masks and protective equipment using 3D printing technology. All these companies contribute to this initiative on a voluntary basis. The 5 tonnes of Luminy PLA resins that Total Corbion has donated will allow the production of over 125,000 masks for health centers and hospitals all across Spain. AT | Local fast solutions The Lakes District Health Board (DHB) in Rotorua, New Zealand was confronted with a shortage of protective face shields for staff working at Rotorua hospital and in the wider community where they could be exposed to the coronavirus. As a response a group of Rotorua companies pooled their talents to manufacture 215 face visors. The Research Institute Scion was informed of the shortage and teamed up with composite tubing design and Manufacture Kilwell Fibretube, who had also been approached by the DHB. Together they came up with a solution that would meet the needs of the DHB, which provided clinical input and advice. A Prusa face shield design consisting of a 3D printed headband, Perspex shield and an elastic band at the back was agreed upon and a prototype was produced for DHB approval. High Duty Plastics cut the Perspex shields using their laser cutter. The elastic bands were provided courtesy of AJ’s Emporium and the DHB. With some changes to maximise coverage, improve design and reduce printing time, the final 3D design was agreed upon and production began. The headbands were 3D printed using industrially compostable bioplastic PLA at both Scion and Kilwell Fibretube, with the team from Kilwell assembling the components into complete face shields. Dave Gower-Rudman, DHB Facilities Manager said the visors were modified after infection control recommendations and are now robust, fully reusable and fit for purpose. “At the time of receipt there were very few options available for eye protection. Even goggles and safety glasses could not be sourced in sufficient quantities. The receipt of these locally made visors was both well received and excellently timed”, said Dave. The 215 visors were delivered to Lakes DHB between 6 and 9 April, another 35 are in reserve. All involved agree that this collaboration was highly successful and demonstrates how ingenuity, science, engineering and manufacturing capability can swiftly provide real solutions that benefit our people and New Zealand. The collaborative team is ready to fire up production for more face shields if needed locally, and Scion is discussing other equipment needs with Lakes DHB.
