When developing a medical device, quality is a key factor. STI, with its comprehensive manufacturing platform for medical devices, provides 3D Titanium printing of orthopedic and bone replacement implants, relying on its uncompromising quality system and 20 years of experience.
EBM system offers innovative tools for medical devices manufacturing quality control including a qualitative assessment of part integrity based on a layer principle – LayerQam and a process verification tool that logs all process parameters during the manufacturing process.
EBM technology: Minimizing residual stresses, Maximizing implant fatigue resistance
STI offers implant designers EBM 3D metal printing services which are improving the implant fatigue resistance, keeping the low level of internal defects and minimizing residual stresses. The products are ready within a short turnaround time, unlike other available services in the market.
EBM metal 3D printing is an additive layer manufacturing technology that employs a powerful electron beam as a source of energy capable of processing conductive Titanium powder (Ti6Al4V) to fully dense material using layer-by-layer principle.
The electron Beam generated by the system carries the energy needed for high melting capacity and high productivity. It is built on state-of-the-art deflection electronics, enabling extremely fast and accurate beam control. This allows melting at multiple points simultaneously – Multibeam – without compromising surface finish, precision or build speed.
The EBM system offers innovative tools for quality-control of the manufacturing process, including a qualitative assessment of part integrity based on single layer principle – LayerQam – as well as a process verification tool that logs all process parameters during the manufacturing process.
