The medical industry has been fast adopting additive manufacturing in recent years across different medical applications. Additive manufacturing offers a wide range of printed objects from new surgical cutting and drill guides to patient-specific implants. It also helps surgeons to prepare themselves for the surgery by printing and practicing on a replica of a patient’s organ and by that save time and reduce mistakes during the surgical procedure itself.
AM reduces lead time and cost and overcomes the complexity of customization per patient.
Assembrix’s VMS (Virtual Manufacturing Space) platform allows healthcare organizations direct access to multiple industrial-grade 3D printers employing diverse technologies in different locations. The platform enables to remotely control and print patient-specific parts based on the availability of suitable printers. This allows the organizations to focus on their medical expertise while eliminating the need to heavily invest in capital expenditure and printing technicians.
