Nasopharyngeal swabs created by Forecast 3D.
■ Other Capabilities of AM
Alternatively, sometimes the need for mass production outweighs
customization. During a disruption brought on by natural
disasters, pandemics, or even foreign conflicts, AM has the
ability to quickly produce products for consumer use without
supply chain disruption. Rapid prototyping processes were initially
created to enable a component to be produced in a matter
of hours, which would be much faster than other manufacturing
processes that took multiple days.2 A great example of
this type of manufacturing being put into action was when AM
specialists all over the world were able to help quickly meet the
urgent needs of healthcare professionals and medical device
providers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Early last year, Forecast 3D participated in a consortium with
healthcare partners to leverage rapid prototyping to develop
and distribute nasopharyngeal swabs on a large scale in as few
as eight weeks. At this moment, the company is able to massproduce
up to 100,000 swabs per day with Multi Jet Fusion,
using a fleet of industrial-grade HP Jet Fusion 3D printing systems.5
This mass production of swabs helped better prepare
healthcare workers in their ability to test for respiratory viruses.
AM has a broad spectrum of applications. Not only do the
technological advancements over the last couple of decades
provide the ability to adapt quickly in high-pressure situations,
but 3D printing also empowers the healthcare field to continue
pushing the envelope of innovation when it comes to patientcentered
care.
