The U.S. designer and manufacturer of spinal implant systems announced the significant milestone this week following its 5,000th implantation last November.
Albright has added a 3D printing capability and developed a special 3D silicone molding process for relatively low cost rapid turnaround prototyping. Customers that need a small number of parts for initial testing but are not ready for metal tooling can benefit from working with a silicone molder that is able to provide LSR molding with 3D printed tooling.
The University of Belgrade has installed a Sintratec Kit Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) platform as it expands its research endeavours inside the ‘Pharm3D lab’.
ABB Robotics, the robotics division of Swiss-Swedish multinational electrical equipment firm ABB, has introduced 3D printing software to its robotics simulation program. With this new feature, the company states that users will be able to program ABB robots to begin additive manufacturing production in 30 minutes.
OrthoCarolina’s first total talus replacement with a 3D-printed implant was completed by Kent Ellington, MD, who performed the procedure on a 69-year-old patient with long-term avascular necrosis.
The EPA is examining possible adverse effects of emissions on human health.
Albright Silicone, a leading Massachusetts based silicone molder specializing in silicone production and prototyping, announced today the launch of their 3D printing capability for silicone parts.
In recent years, 3D scanning and printing have taken on increasingly important roles in the museal content, used by conservationists and archaeologists to digitally archive fragile or decaying artefacts. At Oxford University, for instance, historical instruments are being replicated using 3D printing, which allows them to be handled and even played.
Spicer-based DI Labs, which already prints parts for 3M and Toro, has rolled out new equipment to help capture business in the medical device industry.
