When it comes to TMVR procedures, the wrong size implant can lead to severe complications or even prove fatal for the patient. 3D planning helps mitigate the risk by providing clarity and accurate measurements, which allows clinicians to perform confidently.
SLS has proven to be a dependable technology that can add great value to almost any application. As our focus at Materialise turns to empowering sustainable choices in AM, we’re using this reliable technology to introduce a new material that enables sustainably manufactured prototypes: Bluesint PA12.
The past three decades have seen additive manufacturing mature into an innovation technology. Then, with the COVID-19 global health crisis, the benefits of the technology - making urgently needed products faster and locally - became meaningful in a new way. Now, as we enter the fourth decade of 3D printing, let us look at how innovation can empower sustainability and rethink not just what it allows us to make, but what it makes possible.
Just keeping afloat or actually staying ahead of the curve? In uncertain times such as these, speeding up production and logistics are a must, as is identifying new opportunities as traditional revenue streams are disrupted. Discover how sustainable supply chains and new business models can help.
Since its arrival at Materialise in 2003, FDM has proven to be a reliable addition to our offering, both in terms of mechanical properties over time and quality of the prints themselves. The technology is known for its reliability, repeatability, and quality, making it ideal for certified manufacturing.
UK start-up Mitt is asking us to reconceptualize the idea of what limb replacement really means. By putting function alongside form and leveraging the freedom of design that 3D printing offers, they’ve created a prosthetic arm that is functional, customizable, comfortable and, most importantly, accessible. And it’s this approach that saw them crowned Disrupter of the Year at this year’s London Business Awards.
Point-of-Care 3D Printing has many benefits, from quick turnaround time during pandemics to clinical quality to research and innovation. Discover what experts who have set up these in-house medical services have to say on how to start or scale up 3D planning and printing in hospitals.
Nesting parts to be 3D printed in an optimal way provides many advantages, most of which enable a major industry goal —waste minimization. Find out our top 4 ways that nesting with the Magics Sinter Module reduces waste.
