The medical sector is driven by innovation and a mission to improve patient care. Given that, it makes perfect sense that it has been an enthusiastic adopter of additive manufacturing technologies for many years, leveraging AM’s unique capabilities to develop new medical products and solutions, from dental all the way to regenerative medicine.
Dental aligners, surgical guides, custom implants—these are just some of the widespread applications for 3D printing in the medical world. In this eBook, we are zooming in on cutting-edge medical applications and the technologies and people that are empowering them. In the following pages, the VoxelMatters (formerly 3dpbm) team is excited to present an in-depth overview of the polymer material market for dental AM, and an exclusive interview with uLab Systems’ Chief Automation and Manufacturing Officer, Tracy Bailey, about the company’s use of HP 3D printing and automated post-processing for the production of dental aligner molds.
This eBook also features a fascinating interview with researcher Nicholas Jacobson and Technical Supervisor at LAIKA Rob Ducey about how Voxel Printing is creating an intersection between surgical modeling and entertainment applications, as well as a look at how 3D printing is being used on the front lines in Ukraine to produce patient specific implants (PSIs). From there, you don’t want to miss a look at DWS’s new DFAB technology for the dental market, as well as a guide to all the leading innovators in medical AM and dental AM. All in all, it’s a healthy dose of medical AM insights that you don’t want to miss.
