BioDur® 108 for Additive Manufacturing

Webinar on demand from our additive manufacturing experts

Investigating An Essentially Cobalt-and Nickel- Free Alloy for Patient Sensitivities and Changing Regulation

During this webinar, Gaurav Lalwani, Ph.D., Medical Applications Development Engineer, and Ron Aman, Ph.D., AM Technology Center Manager, discuss BioDur 108, an FDA approved, essentially nickel- and cobalt-free alternative to other stainless steel options, currently used for several medical applications such as implantable orthopedic devices, high-strength surgical instrumentation and orthodontic devices. In this webinar, we discuss the latest developments on BioDur 108 for additive manufacturing with a focus on powder chemistry and 3D printed components on a Laser Powder Bed Fusion machine. Our preliminary results showcase the realization of cold work properties in a 3D printed component.
