It is well known that many medical parts for surgeries and laboratory equipment are often niche products with complex geometries and fine features produced in small series. One of the first major application areas of Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing is the production of dental brackets, crowns, bridges, implants and surgical grippers made from 316L stainless steel or titanium 64.
Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing has already established itself as a cost-efficient means to produce complex, specialty parts needed in small batches for medical and dental industries where quality and excellent surface aesthetics are crucial. Using 3D-printed design prototypes rather than creating test moulds cuts manufacturing costs significantly and allows freedom in development and optimization before producing the final part.
