Medical implants are one of the most highly regulated and technically complex engineering sectors. Get an inside look into the complex world of manufacturing medical implants.
In 2018, Executive Engineering installed an EOS M290 Metal 3D Printer in their Cape Town facilities, and together with their customer, LRS Implants took the lead in local additive manufacturing of orthopaedic implants.
In the words of LRS Implants CEO, Neil Campbell, “Revision surgery and limb-reconstruction surgery are technically demanding and require careful pre-operative planning in order to achieve accurate bony cuts and correct implant positioning and fixation. With the use of our proprietary CAD software and embracing 3D printing technology, we as a company have advanced consequently.”
Come 15 February 2019, you will have a one time opportunity, to see how they design and manufacture these world class medical implants.
