PSA-Canada Uses Leftover 3D Printer Materials to Fight COVID-19


When educational toy manufacturer InkSmith, of Ontario, Canada, decided to switch gears and manufacture face shields to help healthcare workers stay safe during the COVID-19 outbreak, they reached out to the community for help. Pneumatic Scale Angelus-Waterloo (Canada) saw the request (and plans) for 3D printing of the headband portion of the shields and knew they could help. “We have been using leftover rolls from our 3D printer that don’t have enough material remaining to do any of our molds, so instead of throwing them away, we are using them for something amazing but incredibly simple,” said Jerrid Hergott, PSA-Waterloo Production Manager. InkSmith then cleaned, assembled and distributed the shields to local undersupplied hospitals.
