Medical device manufacturing is a regulated industry in which specialty metals are used for the production of high-performance components. With its costs and time advantages, LENS is an ideal solution for applications including the development, prototyping and production of specialty surgical instruments and orthopedic implants, such as hip, knee and spinal devices. LENS 3D printers can be used to manufacture medical devices with a range of functional enhancements. Current developments include surface coatings for improved wear resistance, and 5-axis toolpath generation to coat complex 3-dimensional surfaces.
