IRVINE, Calif. — Infinite electronics has started making general-use medical face shields that can protect the entire face area of medical workers. The company is using a 3D printer to make them.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the entire world right now, so we began to think of ways that we could help using technology we already have. With these reusable plastic face shields, we are able to help protect those who are most at risk on the frontlines battling this illness. We are happy to be able to contribute to easing the shortage of PPE supplies to healthcare workers. We are donating the face shields to as many healthcare resources as possible,” explained Penny Cotner, president and CEO of Infinite Electronics.

The company has shipped their first order of sheilds and is working on fulfilling more orders.
