Fast-Track Manufacturing Projects with Industrial 3D Printing
Live Presentation – Tuesday June 9, 2015 • 2:00 PM ET
3D printing has been utilized in the medical industry for over 20 years. In recent years, the number of applications, utilization, and utility have increased exponentially. This increase has been driven by two key factors: (1) crossing the chasm from “how to print” to “why adopt 3D printing and additive manufacturing”, and (2) the dramatically increased selection of technologies and materials that meet the needs of medical professionals.
In this Webinar you will:
Learn the History of medical adoption of 3D printing and additive manufacturing.
Create a taxonomy of the reasons why to adopt additive, and highlight innovations that are being conceived and brought to market by innovators, 3D printing companies, and customers that address unmet clinical need and economics of the delivery of healthcare.
See specific examples on how technology and material development is changing the medical industry and surgery planning.
