Wrist joint implant made of amorphous metal

Medical technology & dentistry TruPrint 2000 Amorphous metals Finest structures

Materials for medical implants are subject to strict requirements in terms of biocompatibility, mechanical properties and surface functionality. In addition, there is constant cost pressure and efficiency pressure, along with a high level of patient-specific adjustments. The advantages of additive manufacturing combined with the exceptional properties of amorphous metals offer a perfect new solution for implants such as the wrist joint radius plate. These metals have the necessary strength, are flexible enough for movement, and facilitate bone in-growth.

The TruPrint 2000 is ideal for this due to its small focus and its monitoring solutions.
