    Medical device components play a critical role in the development of life saving technology. Yet, how well do you know your component suppliers? It’s been well-documented that the more you understand these critical components, the more efficient and effective your devices become. One of these critical components is UHMWPE fiber. Learn about the benefits of using UHMWPE for your device design and development and how to identify a high-quality UHMWPE supplier. Not only will this help you develop longer lasting sutures through UHMWPE's superior wear performance, it will also help you select UHMWPE suppliers that can help you decrease your regulatory risk enabling lower design and development costs.

    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.
