Huntsville, Alabama —
The AEgis Technologies Group, an industry-leading advanced engineering & technology firm in the Defense and National Security community, is leveraging in-house technology, open-source digital designs, and local partnerships to manufacture protective personal equipment (PPE) masks & accessories for local healthcare staff on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
3D Printed N95 Masks
The AEgis team has committed our 3D printers to creating polyester filament masks that use a much smaller surface area of filter material, extending the life of these crucial supplies. The masks may be sanitized and reused repeatedly, and a single medical N95 mask is enough material to fill the mask filter 3 times. Additionally, the mask design allows for any N95 compliant filter material to be inserted, giving healthcare staff more options for protection.
“The resolve and tenacity of the AEgis population as we persevere through this unprecedented COVID-19 environment is second only to the care and innovation in bringing our capabilities to bear in support of combating this threat and aiding our medical professionals in need,” said Jonathan Moneymaker, CEO of AEgis Technologies Group. “I’m proud of what our employees do every day, but this effort while balancing personal impacts and delivering for our customers is simply inspiring.”
A video is available on the AEgis YouTube page illustrating the manufacturing process of these masks as well as how to maximize the use of filter material. A reference to the original design is also included, allowing others with the technology and capability to contribute to the community.
