Nucleom helping out in fight against COVID-19

April 13, 2020 –

At Nucleom, we are pitching in to assist during the COVID-19 pandemic. We usually use our 3D printer to create helpful inspection tools. Today, we are using it for a totally different purpose: 3D Printed Face Shields.

Two weeks ago, we have started producing 3D printed components for Medical Face Shields to help our health system and the community during Covid-19 crisis. Nucleom is proud to distribute these PPE via COVID-19 – Let’s act together, a movement initiated by Panthera Dental, in Quebec City.

Michael Buchen, R&D Specialist at Nucleom is manufacturing these PPE components to provide for an urgent need. In Germany, they are calling this movement “Makers Versus Virus” and Nucleom is proud to be part of it. If you would like to make a positive contribution during the COVID-19 crisis, consult Panthera Dental Website. Please note that this is a non-profit operation, Nucleom and partners involved are making no profit.

How are we responding to COVID-19?

  • 66 3D printed face shields/day;
  • 3 3D printers;
  • 7 days/week;
  • Approx. 450 first responders helped per week.
