Airbus to build 3D-printed hospital visors

Published on : Tuesday, April 7, 2020

In the fight against Covid-19 the majority of Airbus sites in Spain have joined forces to produce 3D printed visor frames that will provide healthcare personnel with individual protection equipment.

 

 

Hundreds of visors are already been produced and dispatched to the hospitals in close proximity to the Airbus facilities in Spain.

 

 

A patented design to manufacture the visor frames using the PLA plastics is being leveraged by the Airbus.

 

 

Alvaro Jara, Head of Airbus Protospace,in Getafe, Madrid said that one of the reasons he loves his  job is the capability  for advanced design and quick manufacture. Overnight, they have gone from making aerospace concepts to medical equipment. This genuinely makes a difference in the fight against the pandemic and he couldn’t be prouder of the teams working day and night on this Airbus project.

 

 

Following the Royal Decree of 29 March, Airbus employees are allowed on site to continue with this essential activity and even though there is a pause in the majority of production at Airbus’ sites in Spain.

 

Airbus in Germany also joined the project. The Airbus Protospace Germany and the Airbus Composite Technology Centre (CTC) in Stade, together with the 3D-printing network named “Mobility goes Additive,” are now supporting this project in Spain.
