FERNDALE, Wash. — Ferndale insole specialty manufacturer Superfeet Worldwide, Inc., located at 1820 Scout Place, say they and their sister company, FlowBuilt Manufacturing, are in the process of opening capacity on their HP MultiJet Fusion 3D printers to set up a manufacturing line to help with the supply of needed equipment to be used in treating people infected by the COVID-19 virus.
The 3D printers are capable of producing functional parts quickly. Superfeet has made them available to help those needing immediate access to 3D printers and/or production facilities to shore up short-term medical supply demand according to company officials.
“The men and women who are our first line of defense when it comes to fighting COVID-19 are facing shortages of the protective gear necessary to keep them safe. We immediately looked at our machines and our team and knew we could do more to help,” says John Rauvola, CEO and President at Superfeet. “We’ve already started the process of prototyping several pieces for medical equipment with our 3D printers and are ready to help create solutions for those in need.”
Superfeet is asking anyone in need of supplies to combat COVID-19 to send an email detailing their needs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
