Production of the future

Hardly any medical technology product is manufactured in very large quantities today. New processes must therefore be able to realise high efficiency in production and high customisability at the same time.

The first orthosis from the 3D printer made additive manufacturing in medical technology tangible for everyone already years ago. But this is far from the end of the innovation path: many companies and research institutions are working on new manufacturing processes and the development of new, biocompatible materials that allow new applications or more efficient production. Whether bone cement, metals for endoprostheses or industrial scaling in additive manufacturing, the topics of the production experts are diverse.

The demands on new production processes are also comprehensive: hardly any medical technology product is manufactured in very large quantities today. The trend towards personalised medicine will make batch sizes even smaller in many areas. New processes must therefore be able to realise high efficiency in production and high customisability at the same time.
