Coleman making masks on Massivit
Large format and display printer Coleman Group is using its new 3D Massivit printer to produce coronavirus visor masks to supply to various services.
Rod Peter, managing director of Coleman Group said, “We are currently printing 150-200 masks a day. We print the head sections on the Massivit then cut out the face shield from polycarb sheets on our Zund.
“They are going to a diverse range of organisations. For instance, we have just done a job for a hearing centre, which needed to have the clear masks so the practitioners could be lip-read by the customers.”
Coleman took one of the the first Massivits in Australia, which are imported by Abe Weiszbereger's Stick on Signs. Peter said, “Abe passed on some images of masks that Massivit was producing in Israel, and that gave us the idea.”
Coleman Group was founded in 1948, and is now a leading player in sign and display in the retail, exhibition and event industries. It also operates internationally through its Rexframe brand.
