Design for Additive Manufacturing
To realize the full benefits of additive manufacturing during all phases of production, it is important to incorporate design for additive manufacturing (DFAM) early in the design process. Optimize your design and manufacturing processes with these tips.
Path to Standardization for AM Products
rms Company’s AM expertise was recently featured in Tech Briefs Special Report. Ryan Kircher, Senior Additive Manufacturing Engineer, speaks to the path to industry standardization for additively manufactured products.
How to Organize Additive Production
rms Company’s additive division was recently featured in Additive Manufacturing magazine. Troy Olson, Director of Operations – Additive Manufacturing Division, and Ryan Kircher, Senior Additive Manufacturing Engineer, discuss how to create the most efficient manufacturing production process for AM products.
New Sterility Assurance Strategies for Products Sensitive to Sterilization Processes
QTS sterilization specialists Sopheak Srun and Molly Swanson discuss different approaches for the sterility assurance of products that are sensitive to sterilization processes.
Cleaning Considerations for Additively Manufactured Parts
AM parts can be especially difficult to clean because they have a combination of lattice geometries, critical rough surfaces and machined details. Removing residual AM powder and machining fluids from all surfaces can be complicated. Matt Homuth, Senior Validation Engineer at QTS, shares insights on cleaning considerations for additively manufactured parts with ORTHOWORLD’s BONEZONE magazine.
MIM and Metal 3D Printing Examination
rms Company’s additive manufacturing expertise was recently featured in MPO magazine. Troy Olson, Director of Operations – Additive Manufacturing Division, and Ryan Kircher, Senior Additive Manufacturing Engineer, highlight advances in additive manufacturing and the benefits of using AM for medical device applications.
The Ethylene Oxide Product Test of Sterility: Limitations and Interpretation of Results
Sopheak Srun, a principal sterilization specialist at QTS, recently worked with other sterilization experts across the medical device industry to publish the article, “The Ethylene Oxide Product Test of Sterility: Limitations and Interpretation of Results.” This article appears in the AAMI publication, Industrial Sterilization: Challenging the Status Quo, Driving for Continuous Improvement, which is a peer-reviewed supplement to AAMI’s BI&T journal.
This Pioneer In Using 3-D Printing For Medical Implants Has Charted The Course For How It’s Done
As an early adopter of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology, rms has become a leader in the use of this capability for the manufacturing of medical implants. The use of 3D Systems’ technology in conjunction with the extensive machining capabilities of rms, has provided the ability to manufacture previously impossible designs.
Collaborate to Innovate: A Summary of the 2019 Kilmer Conference
QTS Principal Sterilization Specialist Sopheak Srun attended the 10th Annual Kilmer Conference in Dublin, Ireland. The Kilmer Conference is an invite-only conference hosted by Johnson & Johnson and is a global forum for exchanging ideas within the sterility assurance community. Concepts and research presented at previous Kilmer Conferences have helped to shape many of the standards for assurance of sterility that we all use today.
