Additive manufacturing

Three-dimensional precision opens new possibilities

B. Braun is using additive manufacturing—also called 3D printing—to produce high-performance medical devices. 

“The great advantage of 3D-printed implants is that they have a superior structure, which allows the bone to grow faster and better.”

Prof. Dr. med. Frank Kandziora, Chief Physician of the Center for Spinal Surgery and Neurotraumatology at the BG Unfallklinik, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

“With additive manufacturing, we can create innovative products that could not otherwise be produced and offer our customers added value. It is a great privilege to be able to work with a technology of this importance.”

Patricia Graf, Head of R&D Innovative Materials & Technologies, B. Braun, Tuttlingen, Germany.

Before delivery to the clinics, the intervertebral body implants are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected several times.

The implants undergo countless tests in the biomechanical laboratory. This ensures long-term durability.
