Additive Manufacturing in Medical Technology

Additive manufacturing can be used to manufacture, coat or repair components with extremely high material requirements. Individualized series production of high-quality implants is a main application area for additive manufacturing in medical technology.

With metal 3D printing systems individualised medical devices with different geometries, dimensions and alloys can be produced quickly and easily. These include, for example, artificial joints, dental implants and crowns and production can easily be scaled up from individual pieces to series production.

Manufacturing medical technology products, particularly products from risk class III, requires qualified equipment and a validated process. TRUMPF offers extended services which support customers working in certified environments in questions of equipment qualification and process validation. The latest developments in process monitoring and a sophisticated concept for powder handling and preparation also contributes to the process and the quality of the powder and component.
