Qualifying 3D-printed replacement parts for use in critical medical products

November 18, 2020

In response to urgent need during the COVID pandemic, EWI conducted a study to validate the use of polymer additive manufacturing to make replacement parts for medical ventilators. The results of this research demonstrate that high-quality, leak-tight parts can be made quickly and efficiently using the 3D printing technology.

To read the details of this work, you are invited view a paper by EWI associates Jeff Ellis and Dan Kowalik, Evaluating the Feasibility of 3D-printed Parts for Medical Ventilators with Quantitative Leak Testing. The paper can be downloaded for free by submitting the form on this page.
