The medical device industry is currently adopting this technology for the manufacture of patient-specific cranial implants, maxillofacial implants, spinal cages, hip-cup implants, surgical tools and guides, and prosthetics, and more. The use of powder introduces a range of damage risks, not to mention health concerns, that warrant attention for the additive manufacturing of parts, including the source supplier, additive manufacturer, trained personnel of the machine, and the end consumer. This webinar discusses the potential liability of suppliers of such powders and their available defenses, as well as the various risks, potential consequences, and plausible sequence of events that can result in injury to nearby workers or those implanted with the final product.

Presenters are:

  • Timothy Myers, Principal Engineer, Exponent
