Field of application: Medical Technology
The medical technology industry was one of the first industries to implement additive manufacturing and in the beginning, it was mainly used for the manufacturing of complex prototypes. In the meantime, additive manufacturing is also used for the production of applications such as prostheses, orthoses and surgical instruments. Especially short production times, cost reduction and material efficiency are convincing factors when focusing on additive manufacturing technologies. Another special field of application is the production of special instruments and implants, which are individually tailored to individual patients. Particularly in medical technology, high quality of the finished product is indispensable, which means that high standards in the area of materials and surface finishes are necessary, which can only be offered by a few 3D printing service providers.
MetShape sets new standards for the manufacturing of small and micro-precision parts
We manufacture your complex geometries and help you implement new applications.
The freedom of design that sinter-based additive manufacturing technologies allow not only offers visual or cost-saving backgrounds for medical technology, but also convinces with the possibility of individual adaptation to surgeons, customers and patients. Our services enable you to implement complex applications with filigree structures, cooling channels and the smallest wall thicknesses from 100µm.
We offer you components that you can implement without costly post-processing.
Our innovative 3D printing technologies enable high precision and excellent surface quality in the production of medical technology parts and do not need support structures during the manufacturing process. As a result, a surface roughness of up to 2μm can be achieved without additional processes and electropolished <1µm.
We are efficient in the production of your prototypes and series for the medical technology industry.
MetShape offers fast, reliable and resource-efficient production, which makes it possible to accelerate application development. In addition, unlike MIM, for example, no high initial costs are necessary as a result of not needing an injection moulding tool, which means that even small quantities can be produced economically.
