Let AMCM help you stay fit for AM

The medical industry has been an early adopter of AM for the manufacturing of challenging parts. The requirements set by this industry to manufacturing technologies are very demanding.

For hip cups, dental bridges and many other parts, the medical industry has embraced AM as the manufacturing technology of choice when it comes to the production of challenging - often times filigree - structures. Key to all these applications is a reliable, repeatable, and stable production technology that is tailored to the specific part to be produced.

A good example for such a solution is the AMCM M290 Dual FDR (Dual Head, Fine Detail Resolution) that is based on the proven EOS M290 technology and that has been tailored to produce small filigree parts with the high productivity of 2 lasers.

Another example is a project whereby AMCM is developing a special AM system able to process drugs in compliance with all relevant health & safety measures.

These are only two examples related to the medical industry - the scope of our activities in this field is broad and we are open to discuss your specific requirements and how we can offer you a complete solution.

Let AMCM build your custom system for your application.

Printing anti-scatter grids for CT scanners

CT manufacturers require specialized components and materials to achieve high levels of performance in their machines. One of the critical components in CT scanners are anti-scatter grids (ASG) used to absorb scattered radiation and increase image resolution. The material of choice for these components is tungsten because of its resistance against high temperatures (3422°C), its high resistance against wear and the best stopping power against radiation (Density: 19,3 g/cm³). However, due to the difficulty in processing tungsten and the demanding requirements for the use in medical devices, a very precise and reliable manufacturing technology is needed.
