With the Orthopaedic Innovation Centre’s (OIC’s) metal additive and subtractive manufacturing spin-out Precision ADM Inc. (PADM) fully operational and recommended for ISO13485 certification (certificate expected to be issued by July 2017), we can now further help our clients simplify their commercialization process.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is becoming widely adopted across the medical device industry for a variety of applications and the OIC / PADM team can help you take advantage of this remarkable technology and get your device to market sooner.
For low volume or complex shapes that include geometries such as bone in-growth structures and for materials such as titanium, cobalt chrome, and stainless steels, AM is a solution that should be designed in from the beginning. With the support of the OIC / PADM engineers and designers you can optimize your AM design to ensure your product, risk, and cost requirements are met.
From conceptual prototypes through to full run production, the PADM production team can additively or subtractively manufacture your medical devices and work directly with the OIC testing and validation team to confirm that your devices are meeting the stringent requirements that your device needs to meet.
Market introduction surgical demonstrations, clinical studies, and retrieval analysis can be managed and delivered through the OIC clinical services group, which provides feedback to begin your next product design cycle.
Your device + our expertise = market success!
