SLM and Canwell Medical Partner to Speed Certification and Serial Production

SLM Solutions entered into a strategic partnership with Canwell Medical, which will use SLM® machines for product development of 3D-printed orthopedic implants. SLM Solutions will provide technical and application assistance, as well as research and development support to further accelerate Canwell Medical’s product certification and serial production.

Canwell Medical, located in China, is one of the largest designers, manufacturers and suppliers of orthopedic implants, instruments and post-op rehabilitation systems. Acetabular cups and intervertebral fusion cages are some examples of the successful series production of metal parts manufactured on SLM® machines. In knee joint applications, SLM Solutions continuously develops 60-micron (µm) process parameters for cobalt-chromium alloy. 

“We feel proud to win the trust of Canwell Medical. SLM Solutions is the pioneer and leader of Selective Laser Melting technology and medical is an important application field. Our global experience accumulation and innovation will help us to further develop China's medical field,” said Jerry Ma, General Manager of SLM Solutions Asia Pacific. “The cooperation with innovative enterprises like Canwell Medical will effectively promote the two-way development of 3D printing technology in the breadth and depth of the medical industry."
