MEDICAL 3D PRINTING

The medical field is a constantly changing environment in which medical professionals perpetually search for the most innovative tools.  Prodways 3D printing solutions help create devices for practitioners (surgeons, prosthetists, technicians) such as highly customized medical or orthopedic devices specifically customized for the morphology of the patient, previewing models for surgery, or ceramic substitutes for bone reconstruction.

Through the use of biocompatible and medical-grade 3D printing materials, combined with high-precision 3D printers, we offer solutions tailored to your needs.

3D PRINTERS AND MATERIALS FOR MEDICAL PRODWAYS

The team at Prodways Technologies are experts in the development of industrial 3D printers and additive manufacturing materials for the medical sector. Our multi-technology offering enables prototyping to test your preclinical equipment, manufacturing of your medical intervention tools and implants adapted to the patients’ morphology.

3D PRINTING CERAMIC BONE SUBSTITUTES FOR RECONSTRUCTION

Thanks to the DLP MOVINGLight® additive manufacturing technology of Prodways, you have access a unique solution for 3D printing of high resolution ceramic parts with up to 99% ceramic density after debinding and sintering.

Our ProMaker V6000 3D printer enables high-precision, direct 3D printing of unique, biocompatible bone substitutes in ceramics – hydroxyapatite (HA) or Tricalcium Phosphate (TCP) – for reconstructive surgery.

This technology eliminates the steps for tooling required for conventional CIM (Ceramic Injection Molding) technologies.

PREVIEW MODELS FOR SURGICAL INTERVENTION

Whether for training your teams to prepare for surgery or for demonstration to your patients, Prodways 3D printing technologies enable:

  • 3D Printing of models representing a wide range of clinical conditions or pathologies from a 3D file
  • Creating reconstructions of bone from 3D scanning

Our multi-technology offering allows for printing:

  • Massive parts with complex shapes and high resolution via laser sintering technology, using polymer powders with high recyclability rate to optimize production costs
  • Small parts requiring very high accuracy to identify pathologies at first glance via DLP MOVINGLight® technology

 ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING OF STERILE & ULTRA CUSTOM SURGICAL TOOLS

For use with our laser sintering 3D printers, Prodways offers a unique PA11 registered as “medical-grade” by the manufacturer, with USP Class VI certification: PA11-SX 1450. You can directly print small- or medium-sized series of pre-mounted, highly customized, shock-resistant and sterilizable by gamma sterilization instrumentation for single-use in implantation surgery – removing steps and minimizing conventional tooling costs.

3D DIRECT AND FAST PRINTING OF CUSTOM ORTHOTICS

Prodways laser sintering technology, combined with our medical grade PA11-S 1450 USP Class VI, allows for the 3D printing of temporary instrumentation such as highly customized mandibular orthotics – in a much shorter time and with a longer life than conventional thermoforming technologies – as well as more standard orthopedic medical devices.

CUSTOM PRODUCTION SOLES OR COMFORT ORTHOPEDIC

Prodways laser sintering 3D printing technology allows for the manufacturing of light orthopedic or comfort insoles, perfectly adapted to the morphology of the consumer and with the appropriate corrective shape.

The shoe soles are highly customized thanks to the precise scan of the shape and arch of the foot, with a lattice or honeycomb structure, which allows for individual adjustments to the density for each area of the foot.

Shoe soles can be printed in PA12 or PA11 medical-grade certified USP Class VI (medical equipment) according to the type of sole.

 

PRINTING HIGH-PRECISION CUSTOM CUTTING GUIDES

Prodways 3D printing technology allows you to print high-quality medical devices – with precision tolerances of just a few microns – such as cutting guides or surgical guides, perfectly adapted to the morphology of your patients, while reducing costly changes of your production tools .

Our range of medical, bio-compatible materials can meet your needs for the most demanding applications.
