You’re in Safe Hands – Jaguar Land Rover’s New 3D Printed Glove

Jaguar Land Rover Printed Glove - You're  in Safe Hands - Jaguar Land Rover's New 3D Printed  Glove

Engineers at Jaguar Land Rover are developing a 3D printed orthopaedic device used to protect employees from the threat of musculoskeletal disorders that can affect up to 40 per cent of workers in some industries.

The glove is designed for employees working on the production line, mainly those that are required to fit clips, plugs or fasteners during the assembly process. While a prototype for now it’s designed to be ergonomically correct, ideally to be worn the entirety of an eight-hour shift. 

Following feedback from the research and development stages, engineers at Jaguar Land Rover are now developing a revised, second-generation prototype. This will include a foam pad constructed using an impact additive D30 – a polymer that becomes rigid and absorbs impacts when placed under pressure. This addition is perfect at giving employees added protection when working on the assembly line. 

The health and wellbeing of our workforce remains our priority across all factories and facilities. Technologies like the 3D-printed glove allow us to use the world-leading expertise and equipment we have in-house to protect the hands of our makers, developing equipment that will make Jaguar Land Rover a great place to work, now and in the future.
