Eat Bulaga Donates 3D Printers to UST to Help Production of PPEs
The longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga donates three 3D printers to the University of Santo Tomas (UST) to help produce more personal protective equipment.
In a report, producer of the longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga donates three brand new 3D printers at the university of Santo Tomas (UST) to assist in the production of personal protective equipment (PPE) for health frontliners.
On Facebook, UST expresses gratitude to Eat Bulaga and TAPE Inc., and happily informed everybody that the machines have been installed in the University.
“UST receives brand-new 3D printers from Eat Bulaga for PPE production. The University of Santo Tomas, through the Faculty of Engineering, received three brand-new Ultimaker 2+ 3D printers from the company producing the country’s longest-running noontime show, Eat Bulaga,” written on the post.
Thanks to the Eat Bulaga donation, there are now nine 3-D printers that Engineering faculty volunteers use to create acetate-based visor to serve as face shields. Two of the printers were donated from the Department of Science and Technology.
One deficiency in PPE is the problem of UST frontliners struggling against the highly contagious COVID-19. In addition, more than 500 UST Hospital staff had to undergo quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19 patients treated last week.
