The Judd School Engineering Society 3D Print Over 700 PPE Clips for NHS

The Judd Engineering Society have been very busy designing and 3D printing PPE accessories for healthcare staff on the school 3D printers.

Over the course of the Lockdown period, members of the Judd Engineering Society have been working independently to help with the local effort against COVID-19, supporting care workers and NHS staff by designing and manufacturing some of the Personal Protective Equipment that they desperately need.

With the support of the school, they have so far 3D printed around 700 clips that alleviate pressure off the ears to relieve discomfort whilst wearing face masks - these have been distributed between multiple care homes with excellent feedback.

They are also designing and testing an innovative clip to allow mobile phones to be safely carried into the “Red Zone”, at the request of staff at Maidstone Hospital. 

In order for them to progress, they are now looking for any help that anyone is able to offer.

Any donation no matter how small is put to good use raising much needed funds to pay for filament and material costs for the 3D printers. For example just a £5 donation would go a long way and the students could make 80 more mask clips for front line workers! if you wish to donate please use their GoFundMe page http://gf.me/u/xyzgf9.

They also need students who own a 3D printer and would be willing to help with production.

If you would like to make contact or might have a design or general enquiry please email: engineeringSoc@judd.kent.sch.uk or follow them on Instagram @judd.engineering.soc and Facebook (Judd Engineering Society) to stay up to date.
