Sturgeon Bay man stepping up to make masks

Eric Copiskey of Sturgeon Bay is taking the time to make a difference by producing masks for emergency personnel and nurses at no charge.  The project started with family members who were seeking reusable N95 masks with replaceable filters.  Copiskey, who is a meat processor in Valmy, says he saw a video online from a doctor from Billings, Montana, who developed a design of the masks for a CAD program that is downloadable.  He says the demand for his masks has been considerable.



Copiskey uses a 3D printer and has been able to cut down the production time in half from five hours to two and one-half hours while keeping the integrating of the plastic masks.  He says Key Industries in Sturgeon Bay picked up on what he is doing.  They are making a vacuum form mold with hopes of producing 100 masks a day.
