Lincotek, a leader in the production of metal medical devices via additive manufacturing, reported it has produced over 800,000 medical devices since the company started working with Additive Manufacturing in 2006. In recent years, the count has topped over 100,000 3D printed parts per year, with best-in-class yield rates, material consumption and per-unit costs.

The group is family owned and has provided special services to global markets since 1973. It does this from its two innovation centers – one in Italy, focused on the medical sector, and the other in Switzerland, concentrating on industrial applications. In addition, the company also has AM plants and related R&D services in the US and, in the near future, in China too. In the medical field: plants are ISO 13485 certified and release implantable medical devices (CE and FDA); in IGT/Aviation: main production facilities are certified AS9100/NADCAP.
