EBM for acetabular cups

Additive manufacturing (AM) replaces traditional coatings with 3D-printed lattice structures, which improve initial fixation and allow for faster fusion and bone in-growth. Lattice structures are designed for a clinically optimized pore size of 650 microns. Read how Amplify Additive is incorporating the technology into their processes.

Scaling for growth

"Additive manufacturing allows us to make things with and for our customers that we could not previously make before. Using titanium powder, we can manufacture implants with complex geometries and porous structures to encourage bone growth. That complexity and innovation cannot be achieved using traditional techniques, such as milling."
