AVoptics continues to lend its support during the pandemic crisis, to protect key personnel on the front line and to assist in a safe return to work for those striving to keep the economy in good shape.
We all know that businesses face the immediate challenge of returning their workers to safe working environments if the business is to survive. With assistance from the Welsh Government, AVoptics Ltd are developing two technologies that will aid this:
- A Boundary Marker Device, which provides a visual aid on the floor to maintain a safe distance between people; and
- A Sanitisation Box used for package deliveries to kill virus microbes on the surface of a received package.
The equipment, which we expect to be demonstrated to companies by Christmas, will allow businesses to re-open with greater reassurance of workplace safety during the COVID-19 crisis.
These developments continue a proud tradition within the company of responding quickly to help the country out of difficulties. Earlier this year, AVoptics was one of the first companies to manufacture and supply face shields to protect doctors in London, easing the high demand for vital PPE in hospitals.
AVoptics, which specialises in electro-optical technology, provides a holistic service, from initial consultancy, design, prototyping and manufacture, through to test and maintenance/support services, tailored to customers’ requirements.
Another batch of face shields has been delivered to GSTT Hospital @Home Service in South London.
AVoptics staff are also donating face shields to local care homes who have identified an urgent need for more personal protective equipment to increase the safety of their care workers.
AVoptics are proud to be supporting the NHS with their first shipment of face shields to doctors in London. The company’s rapid prototyping facilities, usually used for developing optical systems, are now producing face shields to help supply PPE to doctors. The Cwmbran based research division of AVoptics have recently been working conjunction with Airbus and the Welsh government through the an Endeavr programme developing new 3D printing techniques for optics. This tooling has now been setup to produce face shields using the Prusa open source design. Andrew Lee, Technical Director, said “We are pleased to be able support in anyway we can”.
