ARMOR joins forces with AIRBUS to produce 20,000 visors
| 15 June, 2020
The regional council of Pays-de-la-Loire and the AIRBUS and ADVEO groups have joined forces with ARMOR to optimize and maximize production of the protective visor model designed in collaboration with the University of Nantes and approved by Nantes CHU (teaching hospital).
The AIRBUS sites in the region are contributing their 3D printers and the ADVEO group is providing 60,000 PVC sheets.
"The innovation and 'maker' teams at the AIRBUS sites in Nantes and Saint-Nazaire decided to support the hospital personnel on the front line in the fight against Covid-19. A group of volunteers was quickly mobilized to participate in the 3D printed visor project led by ARMOR and the University of Nantes. The collective initiative will produce an additional 600 headbands each week for the manufacture of visors using about 30 3D printers", states Yves-Olivier LENORMAND, Regional Delegate at AIRBUS Development.
