HWM supporting local hospitals with PPE
PPE

Thanks to the ingenuity and hard work of our production team we are delighted to be in a position to be able to support local hospitals by donating life-saving PPE equipment that we have designed and manufactured here in South Wales.

Having learned that his local hospital was short of visors, our Production Engineer Marc quickly designed a visor using a 3D printed headband, an elastic cord, some foam tape and an acetate A4 file divider!

Marc’s design allows for the acetate to be easily sanitised for re-use or quickly replaced should this be preferred.

We’re proud to have the equipment and ability to produce these visors efficiently, and we’re especially proud of Marc for his ingenuity and determination in achieving this.

So far we’ve been able to produce around 30 of these visors, but with a small redesign we’ve been able to cut the production time in half. We now have capacity to produce up to 90 a week which we will continue to donate to hospitals in Bridgend, Cardiff, Swansea and the new Nightingale Hospital being opened at the Principality Stadium.

As part of the Halma Group, we’ve been able to share the design and 3D printing details with our colleagues in the hope that they will be able to help their local hospitals also.

In these unprecedented times we are proud to be able to help our local hospitals in this way and will continue to do so as we all fight against coronavirus.
