)-- Additive manufacturing has transitioned from a prototype-only mentality to production-centric technology. As a valid production choice, Tangible Solutions answers the question: how reliably does the technology produce a wide mixture of parts?
This data is pulled from alpha launches of spinal cage implants, analyzing 2500 parts spread across 24 different SKUs with lot sizes ranging from 30 parts up to 290 parts.
This study has shown the additive process has the ability to produce process metrics equivalent to manufacturing standards that have existed for decades.
"As a contract manufacturer of 3D-printed titanium orthopedic implants, Tangible Solutions ultimate focus is producing the highest-quality product with a "customer first" mentality. Setting up runs of implants in a true production environment is important to ensure consistency." - Matt Shomper
The output of the study resulted in confirming consistency and accuracy of inspected dimensions achieved tight measurement groupings and high Cpk performance.
