Huge success at the Summer School “Medical Modelling for Additive Manufacturing” within the framework of the European INEX-ADAM Project

The European Project INEX-ADAM – INcreasing EXcellence on ADvanced Additive Manufacturing (call H2020-WIDESPREAD-05-2017-Twinning) has reached its last quarter of implementation.

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 so that it becomes a sectorial reference centre.

After the Additive Manufacturing in Medical Application conference held on 26 November, the Summer School Medical Modelling for Additive Manufacturing was held virtually on the 17th of the current month. This day consisted of seven talks where different entities told their experience in the design of products related to the medical sector from their own perspective. They ranged from the design of dental products, implant design or orthosis design, to the design and manufacture of organs for the training of future doctors.

It is worth highlighting the presentation given by Luis Portolés, head of Strategic Markets and Exploitation at AIDIMME. He presented the paper “Design adaptation of a medical device for its production with Metal Additive Manufacturing. Maxillomandibular prosthesis study case”, emphasising the importance of creating a multidisciplinary team of experts in different fields to obtain functional and manufacturable medical products that make the most of all the advantages provided by the use of additive technologies. He also presented a complete case study.

Besides the presentation by Luis Portolés, we counted again with the presence of José Francisco González, dentist of Oralesa dental clinic and professor at the Cardenal Herrera CEU University of Valencia. He presented the conference “Digital dentist: From data acquisition to preparation for 3d printing”.
