BIOMET4D takes step forward as Meotec takes possession of state-of-the-art LPBF 3D printer

BIOMET4D project partner, Meotec GmbH, has received and installed the company’s latest Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) 3D printer.

The Aconity MIDI + by Aconity3D GmbH is a dual-laser LPBF machine that will be used in tandem with fellow project partner Aerosint’s multimaterial recoating system within the BIOMET4D project.

This project aims to combine different biodegrabdable metals in order to create a new generation of biodegradable, load-bearing #implants capable of changing shape for dynamic tissue restoration to provide improved health outcomes.

It is a €3.5 million European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA)-funded initiative.
