Personalised medical devices are often cited to create the greatest opportunity in additive manufacturing (AM). There are a number of notable advantages that AM can bring to enhance the development of medical technologies for the benefit of patients. However, in this highly regulated sector, there remains a number of challenges, some that are understandably sector-specific and others that impact the broader manufacturing community.
So how can medical device manufacturers capitalize on this innovative technology and manufacture more personalised and complex medical devices, faster, more efficiently, and more cost-effectively?
Ahead of the Additive Manufacturing for Medical Devices Conference we asked Paul Unwin, Chairman of the Additive Manufacturing UK Strategy Steering Group to share his insights and top predictions for 2020 on the main benefits and challenges of using additive manufacturing to produce the most innovative medical devices for commercialisation.
