In a time where so many of us feel helpless, TDI Technologies, Inc. is making a difference in the fight against COVID 19.
TDI Technologies, Inc. (TDI) is a local Research and Development Engineering Services company that provides innovative solutions to government and commercial clients utilizing advanced technologies. TDI is headquartered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania with satellite offices at the Philadelphia Navy Yard.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, TDI is eager to become involved in contributing to solutions that help us fight the fight. To that end, TDI has a non-profit affiliate, ChariTdi, that is partnering with Temple University to manufacture face shields to help meet the shortage of PPE for frontline medical, healthcare and paramedic workers.
In conjunction with the Temple University COVID-19 Task Force and in a partnership with the Temple University College of Engineering, ChariTdi is establishing multiple temporary worksites in the Greater Philadelphia Region to manufacture the face shields to help meet a critical shortage of PPE. As an industry partner, ChariTdi will be replicating many of the production methods being executed by Temple’s on-campus task force. The production involves pouring liquid plastics into a mold to create the head band pieces for the face shields. This process has increased the production capacity over 3D printing from about 5 per day to 50 per hour per volunteer.
TDI is operating at spaces in Philadelphia and its suburbs and is looking to recruit unskilled volunteers to assemble and pack the shields for delivery.
