Almost all speakers for the upcoming AM Seminar at COMPAMED / MEDICA on November 13 are confirmed. Here 3D fab+print organise a half-day seminar dedicated to Additive Manufacturing for medical applications.

Last week the first two speakers at the AM Seminar have been announced, and this week we can announce two more.

Daniel Bomze – Lithoz GmbH

daniel_bomze_lithoz_gmbhLithography-based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM) has emerged within the last years as a state of the art technology for the production of dense high-performance ceramics in the field of Additive Manufacturing.

Additive manufacturing of ceramics for biomedical application – Possibilities, challenges and perspectives

Beside high-performance biocompatible ceramics like zirkonia and silicon nitride, LCM also allows the structuring of bioresorbable creamics like tricalcium phosphate (TCP) or hydroxyapatite (HA). In his presentation, Daniel Bomze from Lithoz GmbH will provide an overview of the capabilities of the LCM process, the potential applications, and the current challenges of the technology.

Alberto Cajiao – 3D Systems

alberto_cajiao_3D_SystemsAdditive Manufacturing techniques such as Direct Metal Printing (DMP), also known as Selective Laser Melting (SLM) offer unlimited geometric freedom, direct digital production, and shorter development time.

Direct metal printing in the implant industry

Alberto Cajiao from 3D Systems will speak about how the use of biocompatible materials such as Commercially Pure Titanium (grade 1 and 2), Ti6Al4V Gr. 23 (ELI), and CoCr, – among other metals – together with the possibility to create patient-specific or customised designs offers advantages for producing medical implants with Additive Manufacturing.
