EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Laser-based Manufacturing for Implants
Online Event

Medical implants benefit from established manufacturing processes such as laser cutting, welding and marking, but also from emerging ones such as additive manufacturing and surface structuring. Let’s discuss with the full value chain how it is possible to further exploit Laser-based technologies dealing with real needs, manufacturing requirements and medical standards.
