BarSplice Products Inc. begins 3D printing face shields
DAYTON BUSINESS JOURNAL, Jacob Fisher - A Dayton-based splicing manufacturer is using its 3D printing capabilities to keep the region's largest hospital network stocked with critical equipment.
The project marks another Miami Valley firm responding to the pandemic.
BarSplice Products Inc., a family-owned provider of mechanical splicing solutions for the reinforced concrete industry, has begun manufacturing and donating face shields for Premier Health.
Jacob Marino, product engineer with BarSplice, contacted Premier Health in late March to offer assistance. Shortly thereafter, BarSplice began sourcing plastic sheets, and its engineers repurposed the company's 3D printers — normally used for concrete accessories — to produce attachable headbands.
