YP HELMET INITIATIVE FOR MASS CUSTOMIZATION

Personalized protection helmet in which the elastic parts are produced out of thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer (TPE) by SLS manufacturing. New mechanical possibilities and very detailed adaptive spring/damping mechanisms could be achieved with the TPE (see donuts structures in the pictures).

Showcase (real application example)

The YP helmet project is an example of the concept of Mass Customization. Hereby, the head of a customer is scanned in order to produce a individualized helmet in lot size one. Thanks to the TEP of Rowak, a new kind of adaptive spring/damping mechanisms could be achieved.

With its wide experience on designing body protection DQBD initiated this collaborative project in order to create state of the art personalized body armour that provides a maximum of protection at highest comfort level.
