3D printing empowers health care heroes
December 4, 2014
In a field where innovation saves lives, 3D printing empowers doctors, researchers and medical device manufacturers to work fast, test thoroughly and customize like never before.
For highly accurate surgical guides and true-to-life medical device prototypes, PolyJet technologyoffers a range of material properties from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent. For strong tooling, custom fixtures and end-use parts, FDM Technology works with production-grade materials, including high-performance thermoplastics.
Both technologies offer biocompatible materials, so you can take advantage of 3D printing’s scalability and geometric capabilities in patient care and advanced experimental work.
