3D printing of safety visors for the healthcare sector

During the last two weeks a group at GKN in Trollhättan has been printing safety visors for hospitals, clinics and nursing homes in the nearby region. The printers, which are usually used to manufacture prototypes and tools, have been running non-stop to meet the demand. At the end of this week we will have delivered some 500 visors. We expect the demand to remain high, so we will probably keep making them as fast as we can for a while.

The help has been much appreciated by the healthcare workers and we are happy to be able to contribute. Nobody can do everything, but everybody can do something!

Our first large delivery was to the ambulance unit at Norra Älvsborgs and Uddevallas hospital. From the left: Martin Thordén – President at GKN Aerospace Sweden, Hampus Olsson, Nina Nordberg, John Eborn, Jasmin Källberg, Jari Lamminluoto.
