December 5: TriMech on Automated PBF Post-Processing

The final December 5th webinar will be held by TriMech, at 2 pm EST, all about “The Power of Automation: Automated Powder Bed Fusion Post Processing with DyeMansion.” Tyler Shamas, TriMech’s SAF product specialist, and Emilie Simpson, a DyeMansion applications engineer, will explain the power behind DyeMansion products, and how they use automation of efficient primary and secondary post-processing of powder bed fusion (PBF) parts. Attendees will learn about the various DyeMansion products, use cases that show finished part results, fun facts about both companies, and more.

“For those who don’t know; the industry standard for post processing powder bed fusion parts is a bead blasted finish. This timely process includes manually blasting parts, individually, until the surface finish is free of powder which can often take hours or even days.

“Luckily, DyeMansion offers automated process’s to not only blast parts but alter the surface for a smoother finish level or even colorful outcome that is proven to be 10x more efficient than manual labor.”

December 7: 3DHEALS on Design for Medical 3D Printing

The latest online panel discussion by 3DHEALS, “Design for Medical 3D Printing,” will be at 11 am EST on December 7th. The unique capabilities offered by 3D printing enables the creation of intricate, highly customized, patient-specific medical devices, and design plays an important role by helping to ensure safety and efficacy. So emphasizing creative and thoughtful design for 3D printed medical devices can help improve patient care and advance the healthcare industry.

“An effective design process ensures that these devices not only meet their intended functions but also adhere to critical standards of biocompatibility, sterilization, and regulatory compliance. Precise design optimization can significantly reduce material waste, production time, and costs while enhancing the overall performance of these devices, making them more accessible and affordable to a wider range of patients and healthcare providers. Moreover, design innovation in 3D-printed medical devices can address unmet medical needs and improve patient outcomes. Customization is a hallmark of 3D printing, allowing for patient-specific implants, prosthetics, and anatomical models for surgical planning. Furthermore, the technology enables the integration of complex features such as lattice structures, drug delivery systems, and biomimetic designs that were previously unattainable through traditional manufacturing methods. In research and development, 3D printing facilitates rapid prototyping, enabling iterative testing and refinement, ultimately leading to breakthroughs in medical device functionality and performance.”
