  • 3D print medical devices in high performance polymers with EXT 220 MED

    The EXT 220 MED, formerly the Kumovis R1, is an open filament 3D printer designed to enable manufacture of medical devices with implant- and medical-grade polymers like PEEK and Radel® PPSU.

FDA clears first 3D-printed PEEK cranial implant

Discover the VSP® PEEK Cranial Implant. This patient-specific solution offers a precise fit and reliable performance for cranioplasty procedures to restore defects in the skull.

  • Fully controllable build chamber heating

    Heat up to 250 degrees Celsius, prevent device warping, increase layer adhesion, and adapt build chamber temperature to suit specific polymers

  • Laminar airflow enabling homogenous temperature distribution

    Guarantee reproducibility with no temperature gradient within the build part

  • Adaptive local temperature management

    Adjust local cooling for each strand and layer individually, heat up to further increase layer adhesion, reduce the need for post-processing, and simplify removal of support structures

  • Optimized for operating in clean rooms

    • Integrate the EXT 220 MED platform into standard medical production environments
    • Receive support to pass medical qualification processes (IQ,OQ,PQ)
    • Use the extractor hood to connect the printer to your clean room air exhaust
  • Includes a filter system

    • Keep particles out and prevent contamination
    • Fulfill ISO class 7 clean room requirements according to DIN EN ISO 14644
  • Features advanced contamination prevention

    • Eliminate the risk of contamination of filament and final parts
    • Simplify cleaning and maintenance with smart design such as touch-to-open hinges

The EXT 220 MED with its filament-based extrusion technology enables printing of implants and instruments using high performance polymers, including PEEK and Radel® PPSU.
