Thumbs up! 3D-printed finger cots support the assembly process at BMW

Occupational health and safety has been further enhanced on the assembly floor at BMW through  the use of customized flexible finger cots fabrication from thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) using 3D printing. Manufactured in-house at BMW and customized to the shape of individual worker’s fingers, the orthotic device is worn over the thumb to provide protection against excessive strains on the thumb joints when carrying out assembly processes such as insertion of rubber plugs into bodywork.
