Renishaw host a webinar with IMR & nTopology

Spinal implant build plate

Renishaw is running a webinar alongside manufacturing research organization, IMR, and software company, nTopology. The three companies will discuss a recent joint project that combined Renishaw’s expertise in AM, IMR’s knowledge of medical device development and nTopology’s advanced design software to produce a new type of conceptual spinal implant.

During the project, IMR designed a range of implants using software from nTopology, and produced them on a RenAM 500 series system. As part of the webinar, Mark Hartnett, Research Engineer at IMR will explain how AM can be used to manufacture spinal implants with lattice structures. Christopher Cho, Senior Application Engineer, from nTopology will also shed light on how software can enable the rapid creation of complex, performance-driven designs for AM. nTopology’s platform allows users to create custom workflows to meet the exact requirements of a project.

Chris Dimery, Sales Manager at Renishaw’s Medical and Dental Products Division, will discuss Renishaw’s high-productivity, four-laser RenAM 500Q metal additive manufacturing system and how the technology can be applied to medical devices, specifically orthopedic implants.
