“It was a very satisfactory training module. We were very happy with the training as it was delivered, it was comprehensive and well thought out. Elena, in particular was very well briefed, polite and helpful.

Considering we also lapsed into humour and fired a lot of questions at her, she was very patient and respectful.

Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable experience and superior to most training modules we have done in

the past. Hugely encouraging when using the new system. ”

The working attitude of Apium team is encouraging the learning and researching activity. Creative way of holding the training on the highly professional level is very inspiring.

We went through the complete cycle of collected data and experience exchange what opens up the opportunity to apply the received expertize on a new level. It is planned to establish an innovative scientific and practical cooperation between Medical University in Vinnytsia and Apium Additive Technologies GmbH.


Implant 3D printing in the hospital with Apium M220

  Apium M220 was awarded with German Innovation Award’22 in the category of “Medical Technologies”.

Patient-specific implants manufactured on a Apium M220 reduce the patient infection rate, reduce manufacturing costs because less material is required, can be delivered to the patient more quickly, and allow the surgeon to participate in the manufacturing process and to make improvements if necessary.


Apium Additive Technologies GmbH is a technologies based company located in Karlsruhe (Germany) that provides solutions for processing high performance polymers with Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printing technology. The company provided the first commercially available PEEK filament and developed the first filament based FFF 3D printer optimized for processing high performance polymers used in industrial applications.


High part quality starts with the material. Apium filaments are the best choice for industrial and medical applications.
