According to San Daniele del Friuli, Udine, Italy based co. and CEO of LimaCorporate Luigi Ferrari, “We are proud to be the first company to bring 3D printing of implants directly to a hospital organization, where the collaboration between top-ranked surgeons and engineers can drive innovation and easier access to patients in the US. This is what defines Lima. A company that has in the past, and will continue in the future,
strive to transform orthopedics by challenging the status quo,”.

The new facility, operated by Lima on the HSS main campus on New York’s Upper East Side.

Arcam Uses Electron Beam Melting (EBM) for 3D Printing Metal Implants

According to Arcam,” is a Swedish company founded in 1997.  Arcam provides cost-effective 3D printing solutions for metal parts.  The Arcam EBM (Electronic Beam Melting) builds metal parts from metal powder by melting the metal powder with a powerful electron beam.  The electron beam is precisely controlled using electromagnetic coils”.

Arcam uses EBM technology to manufacture patient-specific orthopedic implants.  Computer Tomography (CT) is used to build a CAD model of a patient-specific implant and EBM technology is used to 3D print the part from the CAD model.
