3D Printing For Biomedical Devices
Helping Healthcare Providers Improve Quality of Life
Using the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE™) 3D Printing Platform for prosthetics and orthotic devices yields best-in-class results that provide better patient outcomes through more precise fit, faster turnaround, and reduced cost. Orthopedic labs and clinics can conduct patient scanning and provide a finished product in days instead of weeks.
Additionally, Essentium is proud to partner with Vorum, a leader in the development of prosthetics and orthotics CAD/CAM design technology, to replace traditional plaster-cast prosthetic molding with 3D printing. Essentium’s experience in this market can help improve your patients' quality of life through additive manufacturing.
HIGH SPEED EXTRUSION FOR BIOMEDICAL DEVICES
Essentium's HSE 3D Printing Platform delivers unmatched freedom of design to create biomedical tools and orthoses with maximum precision and user comfort. Utilizing linear servo motors on an X-Y stage, 1G acceleration, and 1 m/sec movement speed, HSE 3D Printers eliminate wasted movement and allow clinicians and manufacturers to print faster and help more patients.
Additionally, Essentium offers a wide range of filament materials featuring exceptional strength and impact resistance to make the medical innovations of tomorrow a reality today.
HSE 280i HT 3D PRINTER
The HSE 280i HT 3D Printer is versatile enough to print a single prosthetic device for an individual patient or multiple tools at once.
HSE 180•ST 3D PRINTER
At 500 mm/sec, the HSE 180•LT 3D Printer can print high volumes of clinical-grade orthoses, braces, helmets, and more.
