Trotec Demonstrates Creating Covid-19 PPE With Laser Machines


With the high demand of safe respirators and surgical masks, Trotec have compiled a variety of files and how-to videos for making Covid-19 protective equipment.

These parts do not offer one hundred percent protection against infections, but they can serve as an alternative. Furthermore, these parts are not certified. Note that the QR codes to order Trotec materials may not apply to South Africa – contact Trotec Laser South Africa.
