Donated Face Shields
The first batch of the face shields made at Eaton’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Southfield, Michigan were donated in early April to hospitals in Ohio, New York, New Jersey and Michigan.
Eaton worked closely with Cleveland’s Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network group, MetroHealth System and other healthcare providers to evaluate initial samples and refine the design of the face shields. Eaton is now rapidly scaling up production of face shields to more traditional manufacturing methods to deliver the volume of face shields needed to meet the demand of healthcare systems across the country.
“We greatly appreciate Eaton’s donation of face shields, which will protect caregivers on the front lines and help reduce the spread of the coronavirus,” said MetroHealth President and CEO Akram Boutros in a statement last month.
