KitchenCraft helps PPE efforts

KitchenCraft has joined the National 3D Printing Society and MedSupplyDriveUK campaign. The campaign has created a manufacturing and distribution network to help demand for PPE for health workers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The housewares supplier is using its 3D printer (which would normally be creating new product prototypes) to make the mounts for clear PVC screens to be attached to. The face shields do not need any elastic to be attached, making it easier to sanitise, thereby reducing waste.  Mounts can be printed in less than an hour.

The MedSupplyDriveUK campaign currently has 2200 3D printers active with an approximately 57270 daily production capacity across 1698 delivery depots.

All N3DPS Protective Face Shields are NHS accepted and will be sanitised and assembled by the campaign partners before reaching those on the frontline.
