Additive manufactured implants: Quality assurance challenges

Online panel discussion – February 23, 2023

A big trend in medical technology is additive manufacturing. It offers a lot of advantages, as implants can be produced patient-specific and manufacturers benefit from rapid prototyping and material savings. However, the modified production process requires adapted quality assurance processes. For example, in-process control takes on a special role. 

We cordially invite you to join our free online panel discussion “Additive manufactured implants: Top quality assurance challenges” on Thursday, February 23, 2023 at 01:00-02:00 PM CET, moderated by #measuringhero Jay Elepano.

International experts from medical market like Dale Swarts will take part, therefore the digital event will be in English.

 In the session, we will... 

- discuss the top QA challenges of additive manufactured implants in the highly regulated medical market
- bring together experts from different disciplines
- answer your questions
