IN(3D)USTRY : AVINENT to provide hospitals in Spain with 3D printed anatomical models
Second day of the exhibition and we officially met one by one additive manufacturing companies. Some of them already shared their big announcement for this show. Like AVINENT, a Spanish scientific research and technological innovation company, who will bring additive manufacturing technology in Spain.
The Santpedor-based company (Barcelona) gets accustomed to provide hospitals and clinics with digital health solutions. It specifically manufactures personalized implants and surgical guides in a variety of areas: reconstructive surgery, orthognathic surgery, neurosurgery, as well as reproduction of body parts, such as the spinal column.
During IN(3D)USTRY, the company announced its investment in in a Stratasys J750 3D Printer to increase the manufacturing of 3D printed anatomical and dental models. Last time we heard about this 3D printer, it was at the TCT Show, when Shapeways and Stratasys announced their collaboration, and the medical industry was the first sector to benefit from this partnership.
3D printed models to become a “Must” for medical practitioners
As a reminder, 3D printed anatomical models offer a clear representation of the area that has a problem. They enable surgeons to determine an accurate prognosis and identify the best course of treatment for the patient.
According to Albert Giralt, CEO of AVINENT, their capability to produce high-resolution, multi-material and 3D printed color models in a single print means they can also drastically reduce cost and lead times during production.
