Sandvik is manufacturing a range of 3D printing frames for face shields.

Sandvik says that it is manufacturing a range of 3D printing frames for face shields to help combat the spread of Covid-19.

The company is also repurposing projector transparencies and has ordered protective equipment from China, such as gloves, face shields and face masks, that will be donated to hospitals in Sweden.

The company says that it is also supplying its Exera precision wire to ventilator manufacturers.

‘We are happy to increase our production of the wire that goes into ventilators and thus be able to support the fight against the coronavirus,’ said Gary Davies, head of Sandvik’s medical business unit.
