September 8: Metal AM for Medical Devices with 3DHEALS

3DHEALS is holding a webinar at 11 am EST on Thursday, September 8th, on “Metal 3D Printing” for medical devices. Moderated by Azul 3D CEO Tuan TranPham, a panel of experts will share their latest industry insights, entrepreneurial activities, and research and development projects: Fabio Sant’Ana, Sales and Applications – Brazil, GE Additive; Kuntay Aktaş, Co-Founder of BTech Innovation and its TrabTech, ADDPark, and EarFit spinoffs; and Adam Steege, Founder, President, and CTO of Trio Labs, Inc.

“Metal 3D printing for medical devices is continually on the rise as physicians, technologists, and researchers are increasingly taking advantage of the technology’s boundless flexibility. 3D printed metal implants especially in orthopedics and craniomaxillofacial (CMF) space are some of the earliest devices gaining FDA clearance and wider manufacturing adoption. Biocompatibility of metal/metal alloy, advancement in metallurgy, innate design freedom, and mass customization option offered by 3D printing suggest potential future better implants that could result in greater surgical success and clinical outcome. As the industry progresses, newer or improved manufacturing processes promise a new generation of healthcare applications.”

September 8: Streamlining Electronics Manufacturing with ESD Resin

Formlabs will also hold a webinar at 11 am EST on the 8th, about “How 3D Printing with ESD Resin Streamlines Electronics Manufacturing.” Alex Crease, Formlabs Product Marketing Manager, and Phil Tsao, Lead Engineer of HAVEN Indoor Air Quality, will discuss the properties and characteristics of ESD resin, identifying applications for ESD resin, how it was used to create custom, rugged, ESD-safe components that improved HAVEN’s production workflow and reduced cost and lead time, and more.

“Eliminating unregulated electrostatic discharge (ESD) in electronics manufacturing environments is critical to reducing product failures and maintaining high yield on the factory floor.

“This is where ESD-safe workstations, tools, and fixtures play a crucial role, but they traditionally come at a high cost. However, by 3D printing ESD-safe tooling, fixturing, and workholding, you can maintain high production throughput all while saving costs and time to boost your operational efficiency.”

September 8: ASME on Micro 3D Printing

The September 8th webinars continue with ASME‘s “Using Micro 3D Printing to Accelerate Prototyping & Design Testing” at 1 pm EST. John Kawola, CEO of Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF), and Mark Lattimore, Director of R&D at Tessy Plastics, will discuss how and why Tessy turned to micro-precision 3D printing to enable multiple design iterations and fast prototyping. Attendees will learn how Tessy tested 15 designs to optimize the product development process in less than two weeks, how it 3D printed mold cavities using its own material to create end-use parts, and more.

“Founded in 1973, Tessy Plastics is a global contract manufacturer headquartered in Skaneateles, NY, specializing in injection molding and custom automated assembly solutions. One of their largest customers manufactures minimally invasive surgical tools.

“In the past, large scale predictive modeling studies were done to optimize features and then a mold was made of the most promising design – this was the only way to make a prototype to test the design due to the complexity, small size and tight tolerances required for these parts. The downfall to this is that making multiple molds just for a prototype was cost/time prohibitive with some component molds taking 6 months and costing more than half a million dollars.”

September 8: HP on Testing Requirements for AM Medical Devices

At 2 pm EST on Thursday the 8th, HP will sponsor a Medical Design & Outsourcing webinar on “Navigating Testing Requirements for 3D Printed Medical Devices.” Attendees will learn how to approach testing for biocompatibility, identify the appropriate tests for their own 3D printed medical devices, and more. The discussion will be moderated by Danielle Kirsh, Senior Editor at Medical Design & Outsourcing, and the speakers will be Dawn Lissy, Founder and President of Empirical Technologies; HP Application Engineer David Johnson; and Meredith May, Director of Consulting for Empirical Technologies.

“Medical Device testing is a complicated subject. Join HP as we have an open conversation with Empirical Technologies, a medical device testing service with over 20 years of experience.”

You can register for the webinar here.

September 9: Qualification & Certification for AM Medical Applications

Finally, ASTM International‘s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AMCOE) is holding the week’s last webinar, “Understanding Qualification and Certification for AM, with a Focus on Medical,” at 10 am EST on Friday the 9th. Instructor Ryan Kircher, Senior Additive Manufacturing Engineer with rms Company, will go over the necessary steps to qualify an AM process for producing medical devices, and the certification requirements to ensure compliance. Attendees will also learn when to verify or validate the outputs of a manufacturing process, special AM-specific considerations in producing medical devices, and more.

“The qualification requirements to be applied for medical devices manufactured through additive manufacturing technologies needs additional considerations compared to conventional manufacturing.  This webinar will introduce the steps necessary to qualify an Additive Manufacturing process to produce medical devices and the certification requirements necessary to ensure compliance.”

You can register for the webinar for $49 here.
