Sinterit is one of the fastest growing Polish companies in the 3D printing industry. The several million co-financing obtained by the company at the beginning of this year enabled the opening of a new production plant and provided funds for further product development.

The situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic proved to be a successful test for their 3D printer. Their latest edition of the flagship device, Lisa PRO turned out to be a device that can be used both in the process of creating completely new products and in low-volume production.

Sinterit, taking into account the problem with a shortage of personal protective equipment, began to produce special hooks that, with protective goggles and a piece of plastic protective film, can create a visor that protects against droplet infection. Protective helmets of this type can be used both by hospital employees and distributed in factories where production is underway.

A single Lisa PRO device can print up to 2500 elements per month, which makes it possible to produce 1250 face shields. Sinterit used its machinery to produce 4,000 face shields and deliver them to hospitals in just a few days.

The company encourages its clients to help and 3D printing parts needed by hospitals, but also reminds them of the need to secure their companies and jobs. Specialists from the company pay special attention to complications in the supply chain, resulting from restrictions that aim to limit the rate of spread of the virus. Own equipment can provide autonomy of prototyping and production when the classic supply chain is disturbed. The need to quickly adapt to the situation may require new solutions, such as a stationary production device in your own company.

Sinterit is a manufacturer of desktop 3D printers, working in SLS technology, and presents its devices as the most available production solutions in powder technology that have ever existed. With a price ten times lower than industrial systems, Sinterit 3D printers allow to achieve similar quality. They also do not require industrial infrastructure or specific knowledge – 3D printing can be started quickly thanks to online training provided by Sinterit, in support of the situation caused by COVID-19.
