Amplifying Additive’s Potential in Orthopedics
Additive is expected to play a growing role in the ongoing evolution of more personalized and bespoke medical treatment. Today, it is used for a wide range of orthopedic implants and is helping designers and specialists reimagine medical instruments and equipment.
Arcam EBM Q10plus
Meet the machine designed specifically for the medical industry
The Q10plus is a metal additive manufacturing machine that uses electron beam melting technology for manufacturing of medical parts. Utilizing a high-temperature vacuum environment allows for the processing of reactive materials and reduces residual stresses and porosity. The unique stacking ability of the Arcam EBM Q10plus maximizes the capacity of the build chamber and enables efficient production of orthopedic parts.

Face shield adapter
GE Additive designed a sturdy 3D printed adapter that can convert a standard hard hat and visor into a battle-ready face shield in less than a minute. We collaborated with TriHealth in Cinncinati to understand their needs and iterate the design with local doctors and nurses. The goal was to make something that is comfortable to wear and easily sterilized. These shields were distributed to local hospitals during the COVID-19 crisis.
