The European Project INEX-ADAM – INcreasing EXcellence on ADvanced Additive Manufacturing (call H2020-WIDESPREAD-05-2017-Twinning) reaches the halfway point of its duration, 2018-2022, and is now entering the last period of activity.
In this project, AIDIMME participates as an expert partner with the main objective of facilitating and providing knowledge to the Centre for Additive Technologies, CATeh of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture of Zagreb, Croatia, UNIZAG FSB (https://www.fsb.unizg.hr/) so that it becomes a sectoral reference centre.
In November, an international conference was held, although it was initially planned to be held in Croatia, due to the pandemic situation, it was finally held online.
The conference “Additive Manufacturing in Medical Application” took place on 26th November. An event in which the possibilities and advantages offered by additive manufacturing in the medical sector were presented. This conference was divided into 7 talks in which the additive manufacturing technologies employed in this sector were shown. In addition, specific applications in the dental sector, orthoses, implants, as well as the manufacture of models for training and the results of R&D projects were presented.
In this conference, Luis Portolés, head of Strategic Markets and Exploitation of AIDIMME presented the paper “Introduction to additive manufacturing technologies and their application to medical devices”. In it, he showed AIDIMME’s capabilities in additive manufacturing as well as the results of different R&D projects developed in this field.
Besides the presentation delivered by Luis Portolés, we also counted on the presence of José Francisco González, dentist at Oralesa dental clinic and professor at the Cardenal Herrera CEU University in Valencia, who demonstrated the use of additive manufacturing in the daily work of his dental clinic.
It is worth mentioning that on 17 December 2021 the Summer School Medical Modelling for Additive Manufacturing will be held, where AIDIMME will give a presentation focused on the adaptation of designs to be manufactured with these technologies and where we will once again have the participation of José Francisco González focusing on the process of taking data from patients to the preparation of models for 3D printing in the dental sector.
