Wisbech firms get together to make NHS shields
Two Fenland firms have teamed up to produce high spec face shields for key workers at a local cancer treatment centre.
Based in Wisbech, Rapid Manufacturing Consultancy FRP has recently teamed up with another local company – Pure Fine Laser of Sandall Road – to provide the high specification face shields free of charge for key workers at the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre based at the North Cambs Hospital.
Using a ‘best of both’ approach, FRP 3D printed the headband and lower curved sections in tough ABS plastic and Pure Fine Laser supplied the laser cut, medical grade clear PETG sheet for the main shield.
