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. See how the EXT 220 MED enabled this innovation.

  • 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

    Achieve excellent 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

Sample Applications

  • A 3D printed Cranial Implant

    Craniomaxillofacial Implants

    Material: PEEK
    Patient-specific cranial and orbital plates are 3D printed using a complete design-to-delivery workflow. Manufacturing time is as little as two days from scan to surgery

  • 3D printed spinal cage PEEK

    Interbody Fusion Devices

    Material: PEEK BCP
    PEEK filled with BCP or HA—combined with integrated lattice structures—is intended to support cell attachment and proliferation

  • Trial Implants: Trauma Bone Plates

    Trial Implants: Trauma Bone Plates

    Material: Radel® PPSU
    Very high thermal stability and high resistance to cleaning agents, disinfectants and other solvents

  • a 3D printed retractor blade

    Retractor Blades

    Material: CFR-PEEK
    Radiotranslucent durable blade which is resistant to hot steam with high stiffness due to carbon fiber-reinforcement

EXT 220 MED enables patient-specific PEEK implants at the point-of-care

Discover the life-changing possibilities of 3D printing through Salzburg University Hospital's significant medical milestone: its first implantation of a 3D printed PEEK cranial plate.
