Face shields made by AeroEdge donated to the city of Ashikaga.

AeroEdge Co.,Ltd (Head Office: Ashikaga, Tochigi Prefecture, CEO: Jun Morinishi) visited Ashikaga City Hall on 2020/5/28 and delivered face shields designed and manufactured in-house to Ashikaga City’s mayor.

These face shields were manufactured using Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) technology, which is one of the research and development fields of AeroEdge. In addition to metal Additive Manufacturing on which we have been working on for a long time, we had been considering expanding the scope of our efforts to include plastic materials, and took to the opportunity of COVID-19 to introduce a polymer 3D printer.
Our in-house engineers designed the face shield independently, making full use of the strengths of metal Additive Manufacturing by making more than 5 model changes in a single week and complete the project. We would like all medical professionals and hospitality workers who work in Ashikaga City to use these face shields.

With the expansion of COVID-19, Japan and the world are facing unprecedented situations. In these times whose consequences are difficult for everyone to predict, we thought “What can we do?” “How can we best help in this special period?”, and we came up with the idea to manufacture face shields using AeroEdge’s technology. In order to overcome this critical phase, we want AeroEdge to continue to be a company that can contribute to society and communities in various ways.
