3DCeram Sinto enlists Gregory Nolens to facilitate medical ceramic 3D printing certifications

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

In the biomedical sector, the ability to 3D print highly advanced or customized devices is not quite enough: all medical parts and products must undergo and meet stringent requirements—understandably. When it comes to the adoption of ceramic 3D printing in the medical sphere, certifications have not been a deal breaker, but they have created a bottleneck. France-based 3DCeram Sinto, a specialist in ceramic 3D printing that has been active in the biomedical space since 2005, is aiming to streamline the certification process for its biomedical customers through a new partnership with Gregory Nolens.

With a PhD in Biomedical Sciences and expertise in additive manufacturing and medical regulations, Gregory Nolens is uniquely equipped to help biomedical companies and players to not only implement ceramic 3D printing for medical device development and production but to obtain the necessary certifications. Nolens is also the founder of Cerhum, a company that specializes in 3D printing bones and technical ceramics.

Nolens’ knowledge will effectively help 3DCeram customers to better integrate 3D printing into medical supply chains through certifications. According to the ceramic 3D printing company, Nolens will work with customers to obtain the necessary medical certifications to 3D print dental, orthopedic, maxillofacial and plastic surgery devices, among others. 3DCeram, for its part, will continue to offer its own expertise to its customers to integrate ceramic 3D printing into their development and production workflows.

With over a decade of medical 3D printing experience under its belt, 3DCeram Sinto has a range of ceramic 3D printers and materials that are suitable for biomedical applications, including the accessible C100 EASY FAB system and the production-grade C3600 ULTIMATE. The company offers a number of materials that have been specifically formulated for biocompatibility and osteointegration, such as HAP (Hydroxyapatite), TCP (Tricalcium Phosphate) and ATZ (Alumina Toughened Zirconia). The company’s products are suitable for many types of biomedical applications, from cranial and jawbone implants to dental devices.
