QING Case Study: Using 3D Simulation Technology to Set up a Face Mask Factory During the COVID-19 Pandemic

In deze case study onderzocht en beschrijft Visual Components hoe QING 3D simulatie software gebruikte om binnen enkele weken een volledig operationele mondmaskerfabriek in Nederland op te zetten om te voldoen aan de grote vraag naar mondmaskers tijdens de COVID-19 pandemie.

In this case study, Visual Components examined how QING used 3D manufacturing simulation to set up a fully functional face mask factory in the Netherlands within just a few weeks to meet the high demand for face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A critical shortage of face masks

In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic was spreading rapidly throughout Europe. During this time, there was an increased global demand for personal protective equipment—or PPE—and a critical need for face masks.

As a result of setbacks in global production and logistics, the Netherlands faced the same challenges with obtaining PPE as everywhere else. However, the shortage was exacerbated due to the fact that there was no local  production of face masks in the country.

In this environment, four entrepreneurs decided to establish MondMaskerFabriek, the first face mask production facility in the Netherlands, to meet the high demand for this type of PPE. They envisioned creating a workforce that consisted mainly of individuals with refugee status in order to help them integrate into Dutch society and build a professional network.

However, their initiative was complicated by the fact that to protect their workers against the coronavirus, their factory would have to implement social distancing measures—to keep six feet of distance between workers—at all times.
