Additive Manufacturing Opportunities in Implantable Device Manufacturing

By Aaron Haines on Wednesday, January 4th, 2017


The implementation of additive manufacturing processes in medical manufacturing has grown exponentially in recent years. With the FDA’s recently released 3D medical device draft guidelines, it is clear that the technology will continue to play a major role in medical technology advancement. Each year, additively manufactured medical devices become more prevalent as new innovations are introduced. By 2020, the global 3D-printed medical device market is expected to reach over $2 billion.

To provide a concise state-of-the-technology overview, EWI has created a new eguide, Additive Manufacturing Opportunities in Implantable Device Manufacturing. The guide explores the material and process developments—both current and in the works—that will enable innovation and expansion in 3D printing applications for the medical device market. Topics include:

  • In-process quality control
  • Post-process inspection
  • Materials development
  • Heat treatment development
  • Engineering design data
