Swiss Plastics Expo from 21-23 January 2020 in Luzern (CH)
Are you planning a visit to the fair Swiss Plastics Expo in Luzern? Please visit us at our booth and inform yourself about our innovations.
Additive manufactured implants - lot size 1 are the target
3D printing | When can additively manufactured implants be added to, or in some cases even replace, the parts produced by injection molding? The Swiss plastics specialist Samaplast AG has worked on its new technology and successfully completed further long-term tests.
Ready for the Medical Future
SAMAPLAST conducted complementary experiments with resorbable materials such as resomer L210S, LR 704, LR 706 S, LG 855 S, C209 and X206S. It has been shown that the process also has only minor IV reductions compared to traditional injection moulding.
Absorbable Implant Stabilises Spine
Spine Welding received FDA approval for its screw system for spinal stabilisation. The system includes a bioabsorbable component made by Samaplast.
Lecture by Michael Wildemann in Barcelona
At the trade fair in(3D)ustry in Barcelona, Samaplast AG presented their concept for a presentation on how it meets the market demand for prototypes and small series for medical parts and implants. Special attention in the presentation was on the Arburg Freeformer, with which it is possible to produce generatively manufactured components with standard material from batch size 1 upwards.
Prototyping and risk minimization
Prototypes are more and more a necessity in the production of high-precision plastic injection moulded parts for technical products, medical products and implants. This is why we at Samaplast have pushed this development forward together with our customers and partners.
Successful test on a permanent implant
Samaplast uses the advantages and synergies of additive manufacturing to minimize the risk during design definition and to shorten the "time-to-market" in the manufacture of medical devices. The aim is to reduce lead times and project costs.
