Following a request from the UK’s health secretary, Matt Hancock, to urgently work together in developing ventilators, Ricoh 3D has unveiled that it’s able, and therefore willing to support the increase in mass ventilator manufacturing. The process, which will be swift and cost-effective, will use additive manufacturing and its workforce to mass-produce the ventilators, which will, therefore, make a significant impact.
“Ricoh 3D has unveiled that it’s able, and therefore willing to support the increase in mass ventilator manufacturing.“
Moulding engineering and additive manufacturing lead, Ricoh, Mark Dickin, stated: “New ventilators are urgently required as the coronavirus crisis intensifies. Additive manufacturing will have a vital role to play in this as the technology is capable of producing bespoke parts quickly and cheaply. We have registered our willingness to help in any way. Our team of experts are on standby to design and produce any required parts at a moment’s notice. These are unprecedented times and businesses, as well as individuals, need to do everything possible to save lives.”
