Ferrari 3D prints parts for Coronavirus protection kits

Ferrari 3D prints parts to turn snorkel masks into Covid-19 protection kits.

Ferrari has started to produce respirator valves and fittings for protective masks at its Maranello plant as one of its initiatives in support of health workers treating coronavirus patients.



The department where car prototypes are usually built is producing these thermoplastic components using additive manufacturing technology.
Some valves have been developed by Mares, a diving equipment manufacturer, tailor-made to fit their masks so as to create emergency masks to assist patients suffering from respiratory failure.
