Rosotics faces the COVID-19 Pandemic
Updated: Aug 2
We're stepping up to the plate today to help those who need it most.
PHOENIX, AZ, USA - APRIL 21, 2020 - Rosotics, Inc. (www.rosotics.com), creator of the world’s most advanced manufacturing systems, is deeply saddened to see the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe, particularly in relation to the perspective of medical professionals who are strained for resources, time, and hope. Many of our doctors, nurses, and caregivers are often forced to assist patients without any personal protective equipment (PPE), because of a global shortage of these resources brought about from a failure of our global manufacturing and supply chain. These are heroes of the first degree, and as of today Rosotics is taking executive and significant action to assist the medical community during this hard, hard, time.
Our array of in-house, super large format polymer 3D printers are being directed to the production of personal protective equipment for the greater Phoenix medical community, having already sent a shipment to a vision care provider in the area. We have obtained registration as a recognized provider of the PPE Response Network, and received modeling assistance from the FDA and NIH in order to produce effective, validated face protection. In addition, our technicians have been able to modify our print hardware in order to print more units of PPE each week, for a large need of equipment we are recognizing from the community.
We are taking measures to disinfect, sterilize, and properly seal each shipment to protect against contaminants in the manufacturing and shipping processes. Rosotics is also opening a dedicated form submission page on our website in order to better facilitate the intake of PPE orders we are receiving from the community. In addition, we are offering this service to the community as a courtesy (free of charge), on a first-come, first-served basis until either the pandemic retreats or our hardware fails.
Rosotics believes that it's not just the right thing to do, but it's the manufacturing community's duty to assist in this time of need, and provide the ones on the front lines of the fight against this virus the means to protect themselves.
We will get through this troubling time through unity and innovation!
