Medical industry and 3D printing services

3D printing supports the medical industry by providing personalised orthopaedic products such as orthoses, prostheses and shoe insoles. Orthopaedic products manufactured using 3D printing technology are innovative solutions with a high degree of customisation to the patient’s anatomy, making 3D printing increasingly popular. The growing engagement of 3D printing technology in the medical industry has been confirmed by the largest medical trade fair, OTWorld, where 3D printing components are showcased in the latest product offerings from medical equipment manufacturers.

The medical industry most often uses 3D printing technologies with powders such as Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) or Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) due to the possibility of applying dedicated materials for medicine. Engineering thermoplastic materials have been known for their excellent mechanical properties and the most popular material is certified PA12 powder, specially adapted to medical standards (USP class I-VI and food contact approval), which can be tinted, satin-finished or varnished. The wide range of possibilities for finishing a print makes a final product visually attractive and a suitably designed model can be flexible, adaptable, extremely light and ergonomic. The versatility of 3D printing technology not only increases patient comfort, speeds up the recovery process but also supports the development of modern solutions in medicine. Thanks to innovative technologies, 3D printing makes it possible to realise personalised products in a timely manner, without the use of conventional tools. At Fibometry, we understand that time in treatment is of essence, which is why our 3D printing services are completed in a very short time of 3-5 days.

Fibometry provides a comprehensive 3D printing service, ensuring our clients are supported at every stage of their project. Fibometry technical department takes an individual approach to each project, uses its several years of experience in numerous projects for the medical industry and indicates the appropriate printing technology and finishing method. We are proud of the widespread applications of 3D printing and are happy to be part of the medical industry.
