Today’s Medical Developments: Additive Manufacturing: Exciting reality for the biomedical industry

| The Essentium Team


The world-changing promise of additive manufacturing (AM) has been held back by scalability challenges, but the latest 3D-printing platform removes that barrier, enabling a compelling alternative to traditional machining that can bring far reaching economic, innovation, and environmental advantages.

In the biomedical industry, AM can be a game changer. For example, orthotics and prosthetics (O&P) is an inherently custom industry where devices are handmade for each patient. While practitioners take great pride in the prosthetic sockets they make, traditional processes can take days or weeks for patients to get outfitted with a custom prosthesis.

3D Natives: Essentium Survey Shows That Investments in AM are Paying Off

In early February, Essentium, Inc announced the results of the second in a series of findings from independent global research on the current and future use of industrial 3D printing. We previously covered the first survey published in 2019, which focused mainly on the slow adoption of additive manufacturing for mass-production. This new survey has shown significant advancements in that particular arena as well as significant benefits for users of industrial additive manufacturing while also highlighting remaining challenges to overcome, notably concerning the cost of 3D printing technologies and materials.
