Clearmark Solutions produce PPE masks for local Nottinghamshire and Mansfield hospitals

Companies across the globe have diversified their offerings in order to give back to local communities in light of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Just a few examples include breweries and others in the alcohol industry who have been adapting their distillery lines to produce alcoholic hand gel to combat the shortages occurring following the sharp increase in demand. We have also seen automotive and aerospace manufacturers switch to producing ventilators.

All of these efforts come as we all try to battle this situation together.

Clearmark Solutions has utilised its engineering and design knowledge to produce and donate PPE face shields to local NHS facilities which are experiencing shortages. This has been achieved by utilising its 3D printing systems to print visor components. The systems were introduced by Clearmark to manufacture bespoke parts for the coding integrations systems, offering increased accuracy and manufacturing flexibility. Now, alongside creating bespoke parts, these 3D printers are being used around the clock to produce the mounts for PPE face shields. Clearmark has also collaborated with Asmech Systems Limited who laser cut the clear Perspex part of the shield which attaches to the 3D printed mount.

Managing Director, Chris Simpson said: “We are proud to be recognised for our engineering and technology expertise within our industry and are extremely proud of the fact we've been able to put this to good use and help out by making face shields for those in need within our local community.”

Clearmark and Asmech have confirmed they will continue to produce and assemble these PPE masks to donate to local NHS sites until the demand ceases.
