3D-printing is seen as a promising and game-changing technology in production. Its broad spectrum of applications leads to a double-digit market growth. Especially for medical applications, 3D-printing will be a key technology, as small series products as well as individualized implants cannot be produced economically with current manufacturing processes.
KUMOVIS develops a new 3D-printer based on FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) for the production of medical products. The printer enables an economically feasible processing of medical-grade high-performance plastics such as PEEK. Additionally, KUMOVIS holds the fabrication of the filaments to guarantee a production process fulfilling medical standards (biocompatibility, particle-free).
