Medical Device Innovation with Titanium Additive Manufacturing


Date: Wednesday, January 26, 2022
Time: 02:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
Duration: 1 hour

Direct metal 3D printing for medical devices is becoming more prevalent as manufacturers and providers are discovering its applications in quick-turn serial production of implants as well as the manufacture of patient-specific surgical guides. Adopting additive manufacturing (AM) can significantly speed up device delivery and reduce costs of traditional methods. Moreover, the ability to rapidly produce customized devices can help improve performance and outcomes.

However, the path to bring new innovations to market can be lengthy and precarious without prescriptive and vetted quality management and regulatory processes. In this webinar, Jeph Ruppert, director of 3D Systems’ Application Innovation Group (AIG), will share insights his team has gleaned from supporting the commercialization of over 100 different FDA-cleared and CE-marked devices. Join us as Jeph explores lessons learned for reducing the time and resources required for medical device submission and production, including:

  • Industry standards and regulatory concerns for 3D-printed devices
  • Design principles for medical implants and instrumentation
  • Process characterization and validation with titanium alloy Ti6Al4V
  • Innovation in additive manufacturing technologies
