  • Device manufacturers choose 3D Systems to help design and develop implants and instruments such as:

    • Interbody fusion cages
    • Hip cups
    • Osteotomy guides

    In fact, our development team is continuously innovating our printers, software, and processes to make the manufacture and commercialization of surgical implants and instruments, quicker and more cost effective. The ProX® DMP 350 and 500 platforms are setting the benchmark in material properties and surface resolution for metal parts. Our 3DXpert™ software helps you design devices specifically for AM. It even provides the ability to create complex porous structures, which typically could not be created through traditional subtractive manufacturing. 

  • AIG Video v2
  • Application Innovation Group

    Our Application Innovation Group (AIG) is a team of engineers, designers, and technicians who live and breathe AM. We work closely with medical device manufacturers, collaborating with them from concept to commercialization of 3D printed implants and instruments within a variety of surgical specialties. 

    Together we’ll identify your needs, work with you to optimize your designs, and define manufacturing flow to achieve your application's requirements. Then, we’ll move you toward certification and validation while assisting with obtaining regulatory clearances, completing technology transfer, and implementing AM production on-site or within one of our facilities.

  • Contract Manufacturing for Implants and Instrumentation

    With experience manufacturing over two million medical devices, beginning with the very first FDA-cleared 3D printed titanium implant, 3D Systems has world-class, FDA-registered, ISO 13485-certified facilities. These advanced, highly-productive facilities—located in both North America and Europe—have become a preferred choice among medical device manufacturers.

    Additive manufactured implants and surgical instruments exhibit excellent mechanical properties enabling accelerated product development and lower inventory costs compared to traditional subtractive manufacturing and its long lead times. Moreover, validated parameter sets enable printing of metallic parts that meet ASTM standards for mechanical properties and chemical composition. The 3D printing process also yields many cost-effective implant types and is fully compatible with traditional (CNC) manufacturing.

    3D Systems is the trusted partner of top medical device OEM’s to manufacture their implants and instruments for spine, orthopaedic, extremity, craniomaxiofacial applications and more. Contact us to start your next project.
