Shark Wheel is using its resources to manufacture personal protective equipment (PPE's) in the form of face shields for the medical community. We have already purchased 4 additional 3D printers to aid in our effort. With your contributions, we hope to purchase more printers in an effort to increase our output.
Additionally, any monies raised will allow us to purchase the supplies necessary to create the PPE face shields, supplies like the filament used for 3D printing, the plastic face shield that will attach to the clips we are manufacturing, as well as the shipping costs to send the shields to hospitals in need. Shark Wheel is donating all labor hours in this campaign - none of the money raised will be used to pay employees - it is all being directed to procurement of supplies.
At the conclusion of the campaign, all of the 3D printers that we acquire as well as any left-over supplies will be donated to local health and educational institutions. Any cash that remains will be donated to local and global health initiatives.
These face shields can greatly reduce the spread of COVID19 by blocking fluids and droplets from coming in contact with medical professionals. Many people can use a face mask plus one of these shields for added protection.
Shark Wheel has a professional mold maker on staff and can quickly produce these parts in-house. With your help, we currently have the capacity to make over 100 face shields per day, and with enough assistance, we may be able to produce in excess of 200 units per day.
Help us get these to the medical community ASAP! We already have contacts requesting that supplies be sent to their hospitals. If you know of other places in need, please let us know! Below are pictures of the attachment piece being 3D printed - we're moving onto the face shields now.
