Medical Technology

Additive manufacturing technology has opened up unimaginable application possibilities for medical technology in recent years. Free of geometries, solutions can be rethought and implemented.

Especially in the fields of surgery or dental technology as well as orthopedics, 3D printed solutions find a wide range of applications.

innovatiQ offers reliable 3D printing systems to open up new business models for our customers through additive manufacturing. Especially for suppliers in the field of medical technology, we offer process reliable, easy-to-use as well as economically interesting production systems. The focus is on both patient-specific aids (such as in orthopedics) and future-oriented research areas.

A special requirement for 3D-produced components is the high quality demand with at the same time a zero-defect tolerance. After all, in case of doubt, it is literally a matter of life and death. Slight errors in production or in the material can have long-term consequences for the health of patients.

Therefore, components used in medical technology are subject to strict certification. For this purpose, the production processes as well as the materials and technologies are subjected to precise certification before they are used.

With our 3D printers, we offer users from orthopedics or suppliers of medical technology a variety of advantages. Especially when it comes to high-performance polymers, our printing systems set the standard.

With the LiQ 320 for additive manufacturing of parts made of Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR), we offer an innovation with a wide range of applications. Silicone is a very common material in medical technology because it is not recognized by the body as a foreign material. In addition, it does not stick and can be formed into almost any geometry imaginable.
Inserts, adhesive lips, soft layers or attachments made of soft material: the LAM process with the LiQ 320 from innovatiQ is a real game changer in the medical-orthopedic field.

Advantages of 3D printing for medical technology

Customized patient-specific adaptability


Production of complex shapes and structures

Flexibility in the production of batch sizes

New business models for regional service providers

Stability and longevity of medical products

Prototype construction

The rapid creation of prototypes, also called rapid prototyping, is an important application area for 3D printing. In this process, prototypes are first created digitally based on concept or design models, and then manufactured using the appropriate 3D printing process.

A 3D printed prototype comes very close to the later mass-produced product. Therefore, the developers can gain a realistic impression of the later product and fully test the properties.

Several variants of a prototype can also be created in order to discuss or analyze different implementation options in the development team.

3D printing technology is now playing a crucial role in product development, allowing much shorter iteration cycles.

Advantages of 3D printing for prototyping

Fast and cost-effective production of individual constructions compared to manual creation

to prototype can be adapted exactly to the requirements

New technical properties can be investigated due to geometry freedom and material variety

Cost and time savings due to elimination of necessary molding tools

Tool and mold making

Within the industrial manufacturing process, the production of tools and fixtures is one of the very complex areas. 3D printing technology in tool and mold making shows its strengths wherever small quantities, individual or special parts are required.

Manufacturing these tools or molds with 3D printing systems from innovatiQ removes the limitations of conventional processes in manufacturing. With our industry standards, you can print almost any tool in the desired technical characteristic.

In addition, 3D printing in tool and mold making offers a significant improvement in cost efficiency and optimization of your production processes.

Thanks to the chamber heating integrated into the printing process, post-processing of the 3D-printed tools is almost completely eliminated. This means that new requirements for tools and fixtures can be implemented quickly and to a high quality, and the required components can be produced flexibly in different quantities.

This means that the production of small batches or customer-specific products and spare parts is also possible without any problems.

Advantages of 3D printing in tool and mold making

demand-oriented production of high-quality tools

fast and cost-effective production process

almost unlimited flexibility in terms of geometries, materials and properties
