Additive Manufacturing Webinar Series

Build the Business Case

Is additive manufacturing ready for large joint implants? While still a relatively new technology, metal additive manufacturing has been evolving to become a key manufacturing tool in the orthopedic industry. But how do you know if and when additive manufacturing is the right solution for products in your portfolio, and how do you unlock the technology’s efficiency with zero compromise?

Watch this webinar, hosted by Orchid and GE Additive as the presenters dive into how to solidify the business case for additively manufactured large joint implants.


AM Benefits with Zero Compromise

The efficiencies of additive manufacturing can offer opportunities to expand margin, but at what cost? And how can you ensure product equivalency of additively manufactured large joint implants as you transition from traditional manufacturing?

Join this webinar, hosted by Orchid and GE Additive to learn about the materials, testing, manufacturing operations and regulatory path of additively manufactured large joint implants.


Purpose-Built Hip & Knee Value Chains
