Apium M220 Series
Medical PEEK 3D Printing
Apium is proud to introduce Apium M220 Series 3D Printers – the first of its kind.
Apium M220 is able to process medical grade PEEK, without affecting its biocompatibility and sterilisation properties.
Life Saving InnovationWe offer the unique possibility to produce patient specific prostheses and implants at low costs and minimal lead times, without affecting PEEK`s biocompatibility and sterilisation properties. Therefore, the part meets the high requirements for human in vivo applications.
Based on the design freedom that comes along with our technology, complex geometries can be created on your desktop using radiological imaging data as input. The digital implant model, generated from the patient-specific data, can be manufactured from PEEK within a few hours, sterilized then deployed for patient treatment.
The opportunities which Apium’s Medical PEEK 3D Printing Technology offers, pertains most to the craniomaxillofacial, hand and spine areas where patient specific solutions are in most demand. By implementing the Apium solution, accruable savings on time, manufacturing cost and personnel can be realized relative to traditional manufacturing solutions. The Apium solution makes possible a faster and more flexible reaction scenario at times of emergency.
