EOS’ industrial 3D printing technology allows to produce specialised surgical instruments and medical devices quickly and cost-effectively
Every person is unique. Therefore, optimal patient care in dentistry, orthopaedics and implantology requires medical products that provide a perfect fit. There is a high demand for one-off components and components produced in small production runs whose materials and manufacturing standards have to fulfil extremely stringent quality requirements. This also applies to specialised surgical instruments and medical devices. In addition, these products must be made available quickly and cost-effectively.
Additive Manufacturing enables producers to come up with faster, more flexible and more cost-effective development and production methods. Unlike conventional manufacturing methods, EOS Additive Manufacturing allows maximum design flexibility, enabling the implementation of innovative functions. Thus, test series, prototypes, patient-specific one-off parts and small production runs can be manufactured at a profit. To give an example, several hundred individual dental crowns can be produced in a single operation.
