Ceramics Process Enables Complex Shapes, Controlled Porosity in Implants

 13 December 2010

Tue, Nov 30, 2010 MPMN – Medical Product Manufacturing News -By: Shana Leonard. During the past 25 years, medical-grade ceramics have enabled tremendous progress in the design and development of medical implants. But limitations in current ceramics manufacturing processes may have hampered the development of difficult-to-manufacture shapes and innovative parts. With its fast ceramic production (FCP) process, however, 3DCeram is looking to eliminate these restrictions by producing complex geometries that it claims are not achievable by other ceramic fabrication methods.
