Metal Technology Co. Ltd. (MTC) has begun producing "face shields" that can be used by medical professionals. We are using our 3D Printers at MTC’s Kanagawa Plant to manufacture the shields. MTC plans to distribute face shields to medical professionals from early May.
In light of the shortage of the necessary protective materials, the manufacturing design data of this face shield is to be made accessible to the public. MTC hopes that this opportunity to download and use for free will be taken up by those tackling this challenge.
This data was produced using data published by the Joint Research Course on Next-Generation Endoscopic Therapy at the Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University (http://www.project-engine.org/). The design was then adapted to provide better fitting for those who glasses. Plastic files can be easily used to replace the shield section. We hope that this data will help Health care workers fight the risk of coronavirus infection.
