BELLEVILLE, N.J., April 14, 2020 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — BluEdge is proud to announce that our production facilities have been reconfigured and dedicated to the production of PPE Face Shields.
Over the past several weeks, BluEdge has transferred all of its Ultimaker 3D printers to its Belleville, New Jersey branch. Several BluEdge clients have also donated their printers to the cause, resulting in a 14-printer 3D farm that has been running 24/7. In addition to the farm, BluEdge has been utilizing a Dimension 1200 3D Printer, a Stratasys F170 3D Printer, a Multi-Cam Router, and a Zund Cutter. Together, the shop is capable of producing 10,000 face shields per week.
Frank Plum, Vice President of Sales at BlueEdge, stated, “I have been so impressed by the number of our clients who have helped us to get this initiative off the ground. They were so quick to donate their machines in the name of helping our frontline medical professionals.”
He added, “This is an unprecedented moment in our history, but the silver lining has been seeing how the community has come together to help those who are putting their health and safety on the line.”
Up to 50% of our 3D output is being donated to healthcare and other essential workers.
