How can Medtech companies use 3D printing technology?
4 May, 8.30 - 9.30, Gamla Gästmatsalen, Medicon Village. Breakfast will be served from 8.00.
In this talk, we review the advantages of 3D printing technologies and examine some of their current and future applications in medicine and health. How can companies and users at Medicon Village retrieve knowledge by using these technologies?
3D printing is coming of age. It is becoming a rapid "manufacturing" technology that will have a great deal of influence on how we live and act in the future. It will have a profound impact on almost all manufactured products, on how we do business, and on how we live longer and healthier. 3D printing completely changes the design rules that designers and engineers have traditionally been constrained by. By allowing us to now think differently about the products we design, it opens up a whole new range of opportunities for creativity and sustainability. It also allows inventors and entrepreneurs to get their products to market without the large capital risks of traditional manufacturing that becomes a barrier to innovation.
