    Materials Matter: Explore Best Practices in Materials Selection for 3D-Printed Medical Devices

    04.21.22

    As part of 3D Systems’ 360⁰ approach to additive manufacturing (AM), the company continuously researches and tests plastic and metal materials for use in orthopaedic implants, instrumentations, and models. In this webinar, you’ll discover some of the best practices learned as the team innovated new materials for use in 3D printed healthcare applications—from prototype to implant. Join the panel of experts as they address topics such as:

    • 3D Systems recent adoption of extrusion technology to print medical-grade, high-performance polymers, including PEEK, PPSU, PEI, and PEKK.
    • The impact of sterilization on 3D-printed polymers, such as mechanical properties, dimensional stability, color stability, and cytotoxicity
    • Importance of industry standards and regulatory concerns when it comes to materials used for 3D-printed devices
    • How process characterization and validation with titanium alloy Ti6Al4V can accelerate additive manufacturing of metal implants

    You will also have an opportunity to share your own questions to be addressed by the panel about the 3D print process, biocompatibility, and more. Register today to attend.
