Production of Individual Protection Face Shields
2Ai-IPCA developed a fast process for producing face shields. The face shield was light and comfortable, enhancing its use for long periods with maximum comfort and safety.
A total of 10,000 face shields were produced. Production was carried out on two parallel lines, one at the IPCA and the other at the Lucemplast company.
This project had the collaboration of several industrial partners, namely the Lucemplast, Polipop, Riopele and Adilevel.
A new concept of a ventilator was also explored and a prototype version constructed. It was characterized by its simple construction and its low-cost.
The ventilator was composed of a laser-cut acrylic chassis, a linear guide and lead screw powered by a stepper motor, controlled by an Arduino, and specially developed software.
The total cost of the device was under 400 euros and it can be assembled in under two hours. Moreover it was portable and easily sterilizable. The project was performed in collaboration with CESPU – Cooperativa de Ensino Superior Politécnico e Universitário, CRL.
