Image-to-Implant: Essential Design and Manufacturing Considerations in Additive Manufacturing

Every patient’s anatomy is unique and personalized devices and implants for unique physiologies can provide for a more predictable outcome. What’s exciting is that the technologies are here now to make this happen.  

3D Printing gives implant designers an unprecedented freedom in finding an optimal design. The medical image-based implant design approach enables the implants to be more anatomically contoured. Whilst adding porous structures and surface texture can further improve biointegration1. This is why an increasing number of medical device manufacturers is steadily and progressively embracing Additive Manufacturing technology for personalization of orthopedic implants to achieve improved design and functionality.

Join Materialise and EOS in this webinar to learn about essential design and manufacturing considerations for implementing personalized implants from image to print, cost-effectively at scale.  

What you will learn

  • How to use additive manufacturing for personalized medical implants  
  • The design & metal additive manufacturing considerations for personalized porous implant 
  • How to leverage the design freedom of AM when developing a personalized porous implant 
  • How to optimize printing and post-processing with Titanium Alloy (Ti64 Eli) lattice structures.
