In part two of our two-part webinar series with GE Additive, we highlighted quality, regulatory, material and process considerations for manufacturing large joint implant components. Once the determination has been made that additive manufacturing is a realistic solution for your product, how can you make a successful transition from traditional to additive manufacturing?
Takeaways from this webinar:
- There is a clear regulatory pathway for 3D printed large joint implants. We discussed the regulatory requirements and submission expectations for 3D printed devices.
- The processes for material property and strength testing are familiar to the medical device industry. We discussed ways in which to achieve required tolerances and performance factors.
- Additive manufacturing creates opportunities for marketable leverage. We discussed the ways in which technology can be utilized to realize the benefits of additive manufacturing while maintaining quality and increasing efficiency.
EBM 3D printing of large joint implants will allow us to maximize output, ensure process repeatability for consistent results, and high-quality product.
To hear Joe Farinella (Director, Quality, Orchid) and Dan Frydryk (GE Additive) talk about how additive manufacturing is changing the future of the orthopedic industry, both webinars are now available on On-Demand! Registration is available through this link.
