Oxford Performance Materials Receives Japanese Accreditation

Oxford Performance Materials (OPM), provider of materials for high performance additive manufacturing (HPAM™), has been granted Accreditation of Foreign Medical Device Manufacturer by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.

This accreditation lays the groundwork for OPM’s expansion into the rapidly-growing Asian healthcare market. The healthcare industry in Asia represents approximately 25% of the nearly $2 trillion global healthcare market and is expected to grow by 11.1% to $517 billion in 2018, representing one of the fastest-growing regions in the world, according to research firm Frost & Sullivan.

OPM’s OsteoFab technology is a next-generation implant manufacturing process that builds implantable medical devices layer by layer, using only laser light and OPM’s OXPEKK polymer. The OsteoFab process and OXPEKK material combine to create implants that are designed to enable bone ongrowth.
