#GetToKnowYourCustomersDay Appreciation for our Customers


#GetToKnowYourCustomersDay

During these difficult times where everything is uncertain and healthcare providers need support now more than ever, we would like to congratulate and recognize some of our clients who are working nonstop to help us get through this crisis. Today, in the face of this pandemic, we are getting to know our customers through a different lens on how they have been stepping up to help.

Siemens built a robot to disinfect high risk areas so the medical staff doesn’t expose themselves to the virus. They have also been working to keep the power plants going to #KeepTheLightsOn worldwide. As if that help weren’t enough, they are using their Additive Manufacturing area to build medical devices through 3D printing, which makes the process faster than it would take manufacturing otherwise. They have also set up a CoVid19 aid fund where the employees donate and the board matches their donation.

Another one of our customers, GE, have been helping the medical staff by working 24/7 (they added an extra third shift) to build ventilators for the more critic patients. They also used 3D printing by their top engineers to create a new kind of face shield that can be sterilized at high heat, has an additional part that allows doctors and nurses to lift the face shield.

By creating these face shields they extend the N95 masks wear time. Recently they partnered with Ford Motors to produce 50,000 ventilators in a common effort to fight the virus.
