Since the start of the pandemic in Malta, 3D printing company, Invent 3D has channelled its capabilities into helping the country’s fight against COVID-19, through the manufacturing of visors and respirators using 3D printing.
In its latest effort, Invent 3D’s team has designed and manufactured a vaccine holder, aimed at safely transporting equipment for the administration of the jab across the islands’ vaccination centres.
Applauding the company’s efforts, Invent 3D’s Co-Director, David Sciberras shared the accomplishment on social media, saying “How we crammed 2,000 hours of printing over less than 1 week, with another 3 hefty ongoing projects, is beyond me….but we did it.”
He added that the Central Procurement and Supplies Unit within the Ministry for Health has been quick to adopt the company’s manufacturing agility. “Sometimes I underestimate the strength of our print farm, and the efficiency of our team.”
The vaccine holder is made from recyclable plastic and was approved for use by local health officials.
As reported by Malta Business Weekly, Alexandra Sciberras, Co-Director at Invent 3D, said “Thanks to the amazing capabilities of 3D printing and additive manufacturing, we were quickly able to tweak the initial design to meet Mater Dei’s strict infection control regulations.”
