3D metal printing improves craniomaxillofacial surgery

It’s all about the head – and the face. There is nothing that we identify ourselves by more than our face. We are how we see ourselves. And what’s more: With sight, hearing, smell and taste four of our five senses are located in the head and on the face. Severe craniomaxillofacial traumas or deformities threaten not just the way our senses work. They often also have psychosocial consequences: The patients affected then not only suffer from functional disorders in that they cannot eat, taste, swallow or speak properly. They are often also shunned in their immediate environment. Craniomaxillofacial surgery is a procedure for correcting such injuries and deformities through distraction and osteosynthesis.

Incodema3D increases investment of its Additive Manufacturing capabilities with EOS

EOS, one of the global technology and quality leaders for industrial additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, partnered with Incodema3D, a leader in direct metal 3D printing, to grow their EOS machine portfolio by 50 percent. Incodema3D’s most recent investment – two EOS M 290s and one EOS M 400, will join its existing portfolio of six EOS M 280s – providing its customers expanded production capabilities, enabling them to further capitalize on market opportunities with the latest in AM technology.

EOSPRINT 2.0: Intuitive, open and productive CAM tool for Industrial 3D Printing

EOS, the world’s leading technology provider for industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, presents EOSPRINT 2.0, the newest version of its comprehensive AM (Additive Manufacturing) CAM environment. Together with data preparation software like Siemens NX™, or Magics, the new EOS software provides an intuitive user interface, offers customers greater freedom for application-specific parameter optimization and allows easier part optimization – leading to increased productivity and part quality. EOSPRINT 2.0 is now available for metal systems EOS M 290 and EOS M 400. Future iterations will include support for all current EOS metal systems and future polymer systems.

Renishaw presents implant technology for oral and maxillofacial surgeons

Global engineering and healthcare technologies company, Renishaw, is attending the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS) Annual Scientific Meeting at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, UK. The conference is taking place between June 28th – 30th, as a platform for surgeons and industry professionals to present the latest research and development in the field. The company will present its latest developments in craniomaxillofacial implants and support a workshop run by three surgeons with whom it has collaborated. Renishaw can be found on stand 15.

Redesigning medical instruments using 3D metal printing

Additive manufacturing methods of 3D printing are increasingly opening up new paths in medical technology. Alex Berry, founder of Sutrue (UK), and Richard Trimlett, consultant at the Royal Brompton Hospital, are focusing strategically on AM for applications in cardiology.

XXL 3D printing using KUKA technology

This 3D printing process is also referred to as additive manufacturing. The process makes use of a digital template to create a solid, three-dimensional object. 3D printing processes are now being used in a wide range of industries. KUKA Industries has taken on the role of leading technology company in a consortium of project partners aiming to develop 3D printing capabilities for the automotive and aerospace industries. The development partner, which specializes in joining technology, has been officially involved in the generative manufacture of high-performance lightweight components since February.
