Denton Community College’s Head of Technology is using the college 3D printers to manufacture vital PPE (personal protective equipment) for NHS staff and frontline workers during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Mrs Arkinstall explained that she had managed to make 350 visors and had put in preparations & resources to make more.
Staff from the Millgate Medical Partnership Surgery in Denton were the first to receive the PPE Visors made by the Technology department and a batch are being prepared for a local Nursing home. Mrs Arkinstall will continue make and distribute the visors to local frontline workers who are desperately in need of this PPE in their fight against Coronavirus.
Using the equipment and materials Mrs Arkinstall has at her disposal she is hoping to support the NHS with production of the visors over the coming weeks and has already contacted Tameside Hospital. Mrs Arkinstall plans to continue the manufacture at home on what she has nicknamed the “Arkinstall production line!”
We are very proud of you, thank you for your excellent work and well done from all at DCC for supporting our community against this terrible disease!
