Virus protection from a 3D printer

BREMEN. In May, Mercedes-Benz used the coronavirus-related shutdown – and its technological expertise – to produce face shields using a 3D printer. A few days later, Michael Friess, site manager and head of production at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen, presented 1,200 plastic shields to Lutz Müller, head of the Bremen state crisis management team. “Although the procurement of protective equipment has become a little easier since then, this donation is still helping us to cope with the pandemic,” said Müller.
