In the "Announcement on the list of typical application scenarios of Additive Manufacturing in 2023" recently released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology(MIIT), we found that after the industrial field (Eplus3D Nominated by MIIT in Aerospace Industry), the widespread use of 3D printing in healthcare has made the medical field the second most popular application area for additive manufacturing.


At present, metal 3D printing can manufacture most of medical products, such as implants, dental products, acetabulum cups, orthotics, and so on. Through the customized advantages of 3D printing, the medical team can provide a more accurate and rapid solution for patient treatment, and bring a better treatment experience and rehabilitation effect, bringing more possibilities for clinical treatment.


As one of the leaders in the additive manufacturing industry, Eplus3D provides a wide range of 3D printing solutions for the medical field and has gained high recognition from industry customers. For example, Eplus3D’s metal 3D printers EP-M300 with dual lasers and EP-M400 with quad lasers are perfect choices for metal printing on medical industry with high productivity and best ROI. In addition, Eplus3D has launched several multi-laser large-scale metal AM machines, which can not only provide customized services, but also achieve mass production, perfectly improving production efficiency.


Metal Implants printed by Eplus3D Metal 3D Printers

Different from traditional manufactured medical products, the use of metal 3D printing can create a porous and lattice structure of the implant, which can allow regenerative capillaries to easily connect the two ends of the implant through the pores in the middle of the implant, improve the using effect of patients, and greatly reduce the weight of the implant. At the same time, the powder material used for printing has a high degree of bio-compatibility, which reduces the physiological rejection effect of the customer on the implant. In February, professor Zhao Dewei, executive director of the Chinese Medical Doctor Association, introduced the cutting-edge research results of 3D printing porous tantalum orthopedic implant devices at an online conference, which highly recognized the role of 3D printing in promoting the medical field.


All in all, more and more medical institutions and enterprises start to choose metal 3d printing for manufacturing. It seems the rise of metal 3D printing in the medical field is unstoppable. Eplus3D will continue to provide more customized metal additive manufacturing solutions for customers in the medical industry with our innovative technologies and start-of-art metal AM machines.
