Image-to-Implant: Essential Design and Manufacturing Considerations in Additive Manufacturing
By Madeleine McIntyre & Yeoh Choon Hong, Materialise; Yvonne Lim, EOS
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’ll learn in this webinar:
Additive Manufacturing of personalized medical implants
Design & metal additive manufacturing for personalized porous implant
How to leverage the design freedom of AM when developing a personalized porous implant
Optimized printing and post-processing with Titanium Alloy (Ti64 Eli) lattice structures.
Cost simulation & analysis with real business case
