Apium M220 is a 3D-Printer designed to manufacture medical devices, particularly patient-specific PEEK implants. It is based on MEX (Material Extrusion) technology and it manufactures patient-specific Implants up to Class III (permanent human implants). Apium M220 is a proven technology to not influence the Bio-Compatible properties of the raw material (filament).
Apium provides a cost-effective solution to manufacture customized implants. It is the world’s first 3D printer designed for the manufacturing of medical products and implants made out of PEEK.
German Innovation Award
Apium M220 has received German Innovation Award ’22 in the category of Medical Technologies.+
Sterile printing environment
The hot-air filter system analyses the component geometry and adapts the heating power to achieve always an optimum energy input. The airflow enclosing the component is filtered in a practically particle-free circuit.
New extrusion technology
Our extruder was developed regarding flexibility and durability. The four times higher feed force compared to its previous models enables a precise material flow. All components in contact with the printing material are made of medically compatible materials: PEEK, Titanium, 316L Stainless Steel, and PTFE.
In cooperation with Evonik, materials, and filaments were tested for their biocompatibility. The corresponding tests were successfully completed both in and outside the clean room. This allows medical devices up to Class III to be manufactured from PEEK.
Monitored printing process
By integrating a camera system, temperature recording, and servomotors, the printing process is continuously monitored. This enables the printer to intervene automatically when deviations occur.
Integrated calibration routines guarantee consistent component quality. The Apium print control software automatically notifies you about maintenance operations and guides you through the procedures step-by-step.
Documentation & Safety
All the important parameters concerning the printing process are automatically provided in a PDF protocol. The integrated user administration prevents any unauthorized access. For your data security, we have decided against cloud-based solutions.
The control software is specially adapted to our printer hardware and optimized for processing high-performance polymers. An intuitive user interface allows easy handling of the printer. You can manage print jobs and check the status of the printer at any time.
Our service department will train you in the handling of your printer. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the printer and other challenges of 3D printing with high-performance polymers.
