3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing

SteriPack has the capabilities to oversee the design and development of medical devices using additive manufacturing, known as 3D printing. One-off or short-run projects, which using traditional manufacturing methods are too expensive to bring to life, now can be produced through additive manufacturing. SteriPack offers state-of-the-art additive manufacturing of metal and polymer components for life science markets and other regulated markets. The featured equipment at SteriPack allows the ability to deal with prototyping as well as serial production. 

SteriPack additive polymer processing capabilities:

  •  MPU – Medical Polyurethane: bio compatible, sterilisable and durable
  •  EPU – Elastometric Polyurethane: highly elastic, tear resistant and resilient
  •  SIL – Silicone: soft touch, bio compatible and tear resistant
  •  RPU – Rigid Polyurethane: versitile, tough and rigid
  •  FPU – Flexible Polyurethane: impact resistant
  •  CE – Cyanate Ester: high temperature resistant and stiff
  •  EPX – Epoxy: temperature resistant, strong and tough
  •  UMA – Urethane Methacrylate: manufacturing jigs and fixtures
  •  Other polymer materials

By cooperating closely with clients, focusing on product adjustment and optimisation in initial phases of a product’s life, and foreseeing any possible risks before the product reaches production, SteriPack is able to optimise the design and development process.

Typical application areas:

cranial, spinal and hip replacing implants as well as surgical instruments. Personalised class 2 polymer medical devices.
