Manufacturing visors for the NHS

Posted on

Technicians from EDM have been manufacturing protective visors for NHS workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Alongside his colleagues, Gareth Griffiths (pictured above), Senior Engineering Manager at the Robotics Innovation Facility (RIFBristol) within the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL), has been using laser cutting technology to produce the visors.

An initial batch of 200 was manufactured for staff working at the Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP) NHS Trust. The team from RIFBristol, the SABRE Programme and the wider BRL, now plan to expand production with the support of 3D printing facilities and technicians across three UWE faculties.
