New 3D printers to sustain COVID-19 response

CTU dignitaries grace the turn-over ceremony at Tuburan Fablab early this year.

Brand-new 3D printers arrived at CTU Tuburan FabLab to boost production of face masks, face shields, and other personal protective equipment, as part of the continuing COVID-19 response program of CTU Extension Services Office.

With 10 new machines, the lab aims at creating over 3,000 3D-printed face shields in 3 months for the administrators, staff, employees, faculty and students of the campus.

Given the rise of cases and shortage of personal protective equipment,  the laboratory is certainly going to cope with the demand, according to Campus Director Pedrito Pontillas.

Moreover, the facility will continue to produce various 3D printed products like ventilator mask covers, ear guards, and other innovative outputs to sustain MSMEs.  Zandra Mendoza
