|3D Systems’ product line includes high-end 3D printing services for metallic implants and instrumentation used for orthopedic, spinal, CMF, dental and veterinary applications. Medical device companies rely on our expertise and Direct Metal Printing (DMP) capabilities to guide them from prototyping and trial series to large volume manufacturing.|
As DMP bypasses multiple metalworking operations, tooling and assembly costs are reduced drastically. The lead time typically shifts from months to weeks compared to traditional technologies. The economic advantage of shorter time-to-market for new medical devices allows for reducing the stock levels of devices at distributors and hospitals.
3D Systems pioneered healthcare solutions that enhance quality-of-life through the use of 3D printing technologies and has been at the forefront of surgical planning and personalized medical solutions for almost two decades. Our products and services meet the needs of customers ranging from medical device OEMs and teaching hospitals to individual healthcare professionals. We are dedicated to help doctors train for, plan, practice and perform complex medical procedures and achieve better patient outcomes.

|Concept Laser GmbH, which was founded in 2000 by Frank Herzog, is one of the world’s leading providers of machine and plant technology for the 3D printing of metal components. The patented LaserCUSING® process – powder-bed-based laser melting of metals – opens up new freedoms when it comes to configuring components and also permits the tool-free, economic fabrication of highly complex parts in fairly small batch sizes.|
For the special needs of orthopedics the manufacturing of individual biocompatible implants or prosthetics with open-pored surface structures are also possible with LaserCUSING®.
The mass production of implants or medical components which cannot be manufactured by conventional means or can only be manufactured with great difficulty becomes reality with the generative fabrication technology of Concept Laser!
The LaserCUSING® machines are suitable for processing inter alia the following material groups: Titanium alloys, pure titanium, cobalt-chromium alloy and stainless steels.

|In our experience in specialty metals, ceramics and polymers being used by orthopaedic implant engineers/designers, we have learned that there is a missing link: the understanding of the basic technical knowledge.|
This guide is intended to bridge this gap between the contract manufacturers and the designers of implants, their instruments and the surrounding environment.
After a selection process of best in class partners, we have gathered several contributions from suppliers of materials as well as processors. These contributions cover a wide array on metallic materials, synthetic polymers, ceramics as well as manufacturing processes such as forging, foundry, machining, coating, controlling and testing.
We have purposely excluded out of scope topics such as human tissues and substitutes, packaging, sterilization, cases and trays, IP, regulatory, clinical affairs and certification.
We expect this “PocketBook” to be of interest to:
- Designers and engineers for their selection of the most appropriate materials, according to their biomechanical and tribological properties,
- Production engineering with the available processing technologies,
- Production and administration executives to help them understand their vendors,
- Sales and management to get the latest known public knowledge,
- Orthopaedic surgeons and hospital services to help them to increase their awareness of global supply chain and what technologies are built in,
- Contract manufacturers to know about the concurrent businesses.
