Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing and Bioprinting
From manufacturing of end-use surgical devices and personalized implants, to bone scaffolds and functioning organ replacements, additive manufacturing/3D printing is truly changing lives. At the conference, you will find in-depth sessions covering design and manufacture of implants, dental devices, tissues, and more using a variety of additive manufacturing technologies. In the show guide, look for exhibitors with the MMI logo, signifying they are involved in medical applications.
With medical/biomedical being one of the fastest growing application areas of additive manufacturing, MMI will expand the medical focus at RAPID + TCT 2019.
Be there and connect with those making an impact for:
- Orthopedic implants
- Bone & tissue scaffolds
- Bioresorbable materials
- And more!
MMI Keynote: Additive Manufacturing: Leveraging Design Capabilities for Production of Devices that Make Healthcare Better
Wednesday, May 22 | 8:30 am – 9:55 am
Naomi Murray PhD
Director, Advance Operations, Additive Technology Solution, Stryker
Stryker’s research in additive manufacturing began in 2001. Focusing on innovation, design freedom, and improving healthcare, Stryker’s Tritanium® technology has been used in several FDA-cleared orthopedic implants. This allows for effective and consistent creation of porous structures. The design freedom empowered by AM allows porous structures to be applied to new areas of an implant that were previously impossible. Dr. Murray will share her experiences highlighting how AMagine, Stryker’s proprietary approach to implant creation using additive manufacturing has made possible revolutionary design freedom. She will also share her experiences how Additive Manufacturing can be used in many situations from prototyping to product manufacturing.
