About the Showcase

Discover how Additive Manufacturing (AM) - better known as 3D printing - is changing medical technology, products and devices. Industry leading organisations Materialise and EOS will present some compelling studies and overviews of the process to help attendees understand the opportunity that AM presents.

Learn: How to access AM technology and the support available to help your organisation develop applications.

Discuss: There will be an informal open discussion over morning tea with the industry experts to discuss how AM could fit into your process and how to get started with the technology.


3D Morphic represented by Anthony Harrington, CEO

3DMorphic is optimising the personalisation of orthopaedic devices through a technology platform that rapidly customises generic implant designs, while maintaining device integrity. In doing so, cost (and time) in the operating room is dramatically improved, thereby reducing risk to patients. This enables health care providers to offer patients personalised devices where it would not otherwise have been possible.

EOS GmBH - Benjamin Michelfelder, Business Development Manager

The EOS Additive Manufacturing method paves the way for improved individual patient care. With a thorough understanding of the market and knowledge of the specific development sequences in the medical sector, EOS works together with a strong network of partners to deliver comprehensive and reliable advice and support through the entire development and production process. Thus offering you a safe, thoroughly tested and high-quality manufacturing process.
