McMaster highlights face shields in West Columbia visit to 3D manufacturing company
As hospitals, government agencies, service industry workers and consumers look for personal protective equipment, such as masks and gloves to protect themselves from catching or spreading the coronavirus, companies have looked to meet the demand.
In the last eight weeks ZVerse, a 3D manufacturing company with a packaging warehouse in West Columbia, has produced more than 3 million face shields that wrap from ear to ear to be used in health care settings.
ZVerse has now started making a new model of its transparent shield that can attach around a person’s neck that can be used in non-medical settings. The shield has less of a curve in front of the face, while also being able to flip-down in case someone wants to take a sip of water.
