Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center at NVCC Working to Keep Healthcare Workers Safe

With courses moved online as a result of COVID-19, Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) institutions have repurposed advanced manufacturing technology centers to help meet the state’s need for personal protective equipment (PPE). Responding to the immediate and critical need, the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (AMTC) instructors, under the direction of NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis have implemented a system to produce personal protective equipment for area hospitals.

President De Filippis commented. “In the face of the quarantined response to a global pandemic, NVCC is redoubling efforts to stay focused, develop creative solutions and be a force for good by repurposing College resources to support health care workers at local hospitals.”

Director of the AMTC at NVCC, Joseph DeFeo confirmed that production continues with PPE devices, specifically ear protectors.

Previously two stalwart AMTC instructors, Chuck Buchanan, Academic Associate in the AMTC, and Curtiss McClure, Business & Industry Instructor were coordinating the production of face shields and ear protectors using the College’s 3D printers.  Buchannan noted. “We have stopped the production of the face shields. We are still making ear savers and will continue to make them in collaboration with Danker Designs.”
