Additive manufacturing

Our Additive Manufacturing (AM) facility utilizes Selective Laser Melting (SLM) Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) technology to produce high-precision orthopedic implants in titanium (Ti6AL4V), tantalum (Ta), and cobalt chrome (CoCr). Our SLM process enables us to manufacture complex geometries with exceptional accuracy, quality, and consistency, ensuring that every implant meets the exacting standards of our OEM customers. We are specialized in these materials due to their unique properties, including high strength, corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility. This results in implants that are lightweight and strong, with reduced patient discomfort and faster healing times.

Materials testing

Our AM capability is supported by an internal mechanical materials testing lab, equipped with state-of-the-art testing equipment and staffed by experienced engineers. We conduct comprehensive mechanical tests, including tensile, compression, and fatigue testing to ensure our orthopedic implants meet the highest standards of quality and durability. Our testing capabilities enable us to identify any potential defects or weaknesses in our products, allowing us to make adjustments and improvements as necessary. Our testing lab is a critical component of our manufacturing process, ensuring that every product is safe, effective and reliable.


Our AM capability is bolstered by a robust post-processing program, specifically designed to meet the stringent standards of the orthopedic implant industry. These post-processing capabilities, including CNC machining, polishing, and media-blasting, ensure produced implants achieve the desired surface finish, dimensional accuracy and material properties. The use of advanced equipment such as five-axis CNC machines ensures the highest calibre post-processing capabilities. We are committed to providing a comprehensive solution for orthopedic implant production, combining AM and post-processing capabilities to deliver a high-quality product to meet the unique needs of our customers.

Heat treatment

In addition to our mechanical materials testing lab and post processing capabilities, our AM process is supported by advanced vacuum and hot isostatic pressing (HIP) technology. Our HIP process involves applying high temperature and pressure to our implants, eliminating internal voids and enhancing their structural integrity.

During the HIP process, an inert gas is used to heat and pressurize the implants, eliminating any porosity and defects that may have occurred during the additive manufacturing process. This results in orthopedic implants that are highly resistant to fatigue and have exceptional mechanical properties. This HIP process is a critical component of our AM capability, ensuring that every implant we produce meets the highest standards of quality and durability.
