Title: Covid-19 Face shield clip
During the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a great demand for the design and manufacture of face shields as a way of stopping the spread of the virus. Many designs were already available but had complicated assemblies and some were quite flimsy. Thus, we have designed an adjustable face shield, with simple blobs that are used to help clip the visor into place, assembly will take less than 20 seconds. The face shield is design to allow an elastic band to be placed in case the band is a bit loose, however in most cases it is not necessary. The band is designed in such a way that it can be additive manufactured rapidly and easily, moreover it is designed in such a way that if need it be, CNC molds can be machined and the face shield can be produced by injection molding and capacities of up to 1000 face shields a day may be achieved.
