Fairborn, OH, May 28, 2021 --(PR.com
)-- Ohio-based Tangible Solutions announces the pre-recorded webinar presented by Chris Collins, Tangible Solutions COO for the OMTEC® Education Series is currently live. The webinar titled, “Model-Based Definition for Additive Manufacturing” reviews the current state of orthopedic implant manufacturing, and outlines exciting growth and developments in the design of model-based orthopedic implants.
“Traditional designs for orthopedic medical devices manufactured currently have been trabecular or organized lattices that have been limited either by engineering skills or the tools/software they are using,” says Collins. “What I present in the OMTEC webinar is the next generation in orthopedic implant designs, utilizing highly advanced software programs and are mathematically driven. These tools make it possible to manufacture medical devices that match the model design.”
Collins notes that the AM industry is seeing strong growth in product development, as well as engineering skills and their understanding of the powerful software programs that are now available. “There is a general need for companies to invest in engineering and these software programs. But the programs are only part of it. Engineers need training to understand the technology possibilities, and there is a lack of organized educational training for engineers.”
The entire OMTEC Virtual Education Series, including the Tangible webinar, is available upon registration at the OMTEC Expo website.
