Light-Curing Conveyor Enables 100% Manufacturing Scale Up

A case study on how using Dymax UVCS Light-Curing Conveyor Systems helped to increase the production of nasal swabs.

Dymax Partners with 3D Printer Company on COVID-19 Test Swabs #InThisTogether


Meet a projected industry demand of 1M nasal swabs per week

Origin Technologies, a 3D printing company focused on bringing mass manufacturing to the additive industry, needed to quickly pivot its production to generate nasopharyngeal swabs, a process they weren't set up to do.

In order to meet projected demand of 1M swabs per week, the company needed to scale up its manufacturing 100%. With Origin running 30-40 3D printers simultaneously at the peak of production to print up to 20K parts per day, they needed a way to post-cure the 3D printed swabs quickly. One of the major bottlenecks to achieving this goal was the lack of light-curing equipment that could process the number of swabs required. 


Use Dymax UVCS Conveyors to speed up assembly time

The Dymax Territory Manager and sales partner met with Origin to review their process and understand their needs. Dymax donated one UVCS conveyor with two Fusion F300 lamps to the company that was capable of curing up to 14 pieces per minute to get production underway. Origin ordered two additional UVCS conveyors to get their assembly line running at full speed and were able to fill all their orders on time. 


Increased production levels

The collaboration between the two companies allowed Origin to quickly increase production and deliver a large volume of testing swabs to help in the fight against COVID-19.
