Medical technology places high demands on both materials and components. On one hand it is desirable for costs to be saved and materials to be used in a resource-saving way, while on the other hand, complex geometries and solutions that are individually tailored to the patient are also often necessary. In addition, the materials used in medicine are always subject to the high standards of biocompatibility.
With our Medical Grade (MT) filament portfolio, Ensinger offers filaments that are produced according to ISO 13485 conditions and have been tested and evaluated for biocompatibility in accordance with ISO 10993-1, -4, -5, -18 and thus meet the requirements for direct contact with skin and tissue for up to 24 hours and, if necessary, indirect contact with blood. Ensinger supplies corresponding biocompatibility declarations with every order of TECAFIL MT filaments which ensures complete traceability.
Medical grade (MT) filaments from Ensinger offer:
A means to cost-efficient production of medical components
The manufacture of economically efficient custom-made products that meet individual patient requirements.
The production of individual parts as well as small sized batches .
Resource-saving production, since 3D printing only uses as much material as is needed for the component.
Significant weight savings through the use of plastics as well as infill structures compared to metal.
Our biocompatible medical filaments can be used for a variety of 3D printed components in the medical field. We will be happy to advise you on the possibilities of additive manufacturing in medicine and accompany your project from inception to production.
