Mesh Structures for Body Implants through Rapid Manufacturing (RM)

Selective Laser Melting (SLM) Technology opens New Perspectives in Medical Implantology

Three-dimensional porous metallic structures are of great importance for implant surgery since such structures promote the in-growth of natural human bone cells (osseointegration). During the last few months MCP-HEK has produced prototypes with interconnected porous structures (see pictures) with the MCP Realizer II SLM in a benchmark study for the University of Liverpool.
