Evonik is a biomaterials partner and application technology solution provider to medical device companies seeking to develop high-resolution bioresorbable implantable medical devices using 3D printing technologies. In this webinar, Evonik experts discussed application opportunities made possible through the world’s first commercial GMP portfolio of bioresorbable polymers suitable for use with all core 3D printing technologies. In addition to RESOMER®
polymers for 3D printing including powders, filaments and granules, the webinar discussed how medical device customers can benefit from customization and various application technology services including in-house powder development and printing. Topics include:
- Filament for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) / Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
- Powder for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
- Gels or liquids for bioplotters
- Granules for freeformer
- 3D Printing services
