If hard and scratch-resistant surfaces are required for implants and instruments made from titanium and titanium alloys, our customers use the dark anodizing process TioDark™
The actual issue with 3D-printed devices in the medical device industry is the presence of metal powder remains on the device itself. KKS developed a wet process for the removal of these particles.
The School of Life Sciences of FHNW operates a qualified Selective Laser Melting process to manufacture medical products in titanium grade 2. Such implants are approved for the use in humans already today.
