Additively manufactured medical parts and implants

Highly-Automated Tool Shop Achieves Efficient, Precise Medical Device Manufacturing
When a basketball player needs a knee replacement, standard implants simply won’t do. With a total of 18 different additive manufacturing systems, the Aesculap division of medical company B. Braun is the place to go to have custom implants printed to size. However, the highly-automated tool and mold shop has much more to offer when it comes to producing injection molds, complex progressive dies as well as prototypes and fixtures for series production.
