INDUSTRIALISATION IN THE HEALTH SECTOR
AMFACTORi implements advanced additive manufacturing processes in the health sector, through applying adaptive design and 3D printing techniques in metal (medical grade titanium), in developing customised implantable solutions tailored to the patient's needs and pathology.
At the request of the Salamanca Hospital Thoracic Surgery Service, a project to develop an ad hoc thoracic prosthesis for a specific tumour case was addressed.
This milestone is a direct application of additive manufacturing in the health sector, encompassing the design, engineering and manufacturing of the prosthesis and optimising process times and costs to ensure the viability of developments in the health sector.
