3D printing is experiencing a boom like never before during the corona crisis. In many parts of the world, companies and makers are working on the additive manufacturing of personal protective equipment for the healthcare sector. But what is often forgotten are basic requirements such as the use of approved medical-grade materials. At the digitalized and free International Conference on 3D printing in Medicine, Kumovis will discuss which materials are available for 3D printing medical products and which are being developed.
Attendants will learn about both the benefits and challenges of the top-ten polymers for clinical applications and how to process them. Kumovis is well-experienced with both industry-specific 3D printing technology as well as working with medical-grade materials, and consequently has plenty of expertise to share on which materials feature implant-grade specifications and which are to be released for temporary body contact among other things.
3D printing meets point of care
“The range of materials might be overwhelming when looking into 3D printing – especially when it comes to adopting the technology at the point of care,” said Martin Herzmann, the Kumovis session’s speaker at the conference. “To successfully integrate additive manufacturing into clinical processes, know-how in materials and additive manufacturing technologies as well as profound knowledge of the clinical applications are essential.”
At the International Conference on 3D printing in Medicine, Kumovis presents a comprehensive overview on medical-grade materials to enhance decentralized and personalized medical production. Save the date, and please fill out the form for registering to attend the Kumovis session and many more on April 25, 2020, free of charge.
