Metrology for additively manufactured medical implants

Project: EU project

Project Details


Establishing reliability for additively manufactured medical devices.

Additive manufacturing (AM) is an effective way to produce customised medical devices. However, more evidence of reliability and safety of such devices are needed.

Project qualifies AM devices and patient specific guides and implants and thus provides a basis for a safe and cost efficient use of AM products.

VTT MIKES fabricates medical implants, standard artefacts, and guides and characterises their outer geometry and surface characteristics by using high accuracy CMM.
