Call for Speakers: 2024 Implant Polymers Conference
Before we get to this week’s offerings, we wanted to let everyone know that registration, and the call for speakers, is now open for the Implant Polymers Conference, which will take place both online and in Barcelona from June 20-21, 2024. This hybrid event will welcome the UHMWPE, PEEK, and polymer implant additive manufacturing community, and abstracts are focused on, but not limited to, topics such as clinical results for PAEKs; 3D printing of bioresorbable polymers, PEEK, PEKK and CFR-PAEK medical devices; point-of-care 3D printed implants; bioactive PAEK innovations; implant development for high-temperature polymers like PAEK and PPSU; and more.
“The purpose of the meeting is to bring together engineers, scientists, regulators, and clinicians from academia, industry, and government to present leading edge research on advancements in medical grade UHMWPE, PEEK, and the rapidly growing field of polymer implant additive manufacturing technology. In addition to UHMWPE and PEEK, the meeting will also broadly showcase point-of-care additive manufacturing of implantable polymers. The meeting will cover two full days and address the evolving interests of our polymer implant communities.”
3D Printing News Unpeeled
Our Executive Editor Joris Peels, who’s also the Vice President of Consulting at Additive Manufacturing Research (formerly SmarTech Analysis), offers a news livestream one to two times a week called 3D Printing News Unpeeled at 9:30 am EST. For each episode, Peels gets on LinkedIn Live and tells us, in 20 minutes or less, what he considers to be the top news stories from the 3D printing industry that week, and why they’re important. Some of the stories in his roundup are ones we’ve covered at 3DPrint.com, and some are not, but they are all equally interesting and impactful.
October 8: MiMe Global Youngstown Grand Opening
Ohio-based 3D printing company MiMe Global, which specializes in high-quality miniature replicas, is officially opening its new store in the Mahoning Valley! In June of 2019, the company won the Eastwood Mall Small Shop Showdown competition, and received six months of free rent, advertising, and marketing from the Cafaro Company, which owns the mall complex. MiMe has done so well for itself since then that it closed its location in the Eastwood Mall, and opens the new store at 2533 Belmont Avenue in Youngstown this weekend.
All weekend, there have been giveaways, discounts, and tours of the new space, and several food truck vendors were parked outside as well. But today, October 8th, will be the official ribbon-cutting at MiMe Global’s new Youngstown store.
