3D TUBULAR PRINTER
Secret Know-How.

The technology allows the manufacture of bioabsorbent stents through 3D printing in 3 axes. The technology allows great savings of time and cost and a great flexibility of adaptation in each case.

TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION

Stents are spring-shaped devices that help correct obstruction of the arteries. The technology offered, 3D TUBULAR PRINTER, allows the manufacture of bioabsorbent stents by means of 3D printing in 3 axes with great dimensional accuracy, achieving its complete resorption and disappearance. This technology also allows the manufacture of other tubular medical microdispositions.

The TUBULAR PRINTER 3D technology allows the manufacture of bioabsorbent stents by 3D printing in 3 axes with high dimensional accuracy and cost reduction compared to conventional manufacture.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY

New concept of manufacture applied to tubular medical devices, such as the STENTS. The technology allows great savings of time and cost and a great flexibility of adaptation in each case.
• Reduction in the production process of polymer biodegradable stents of 6 to 3 stages
• Reduction deadlines for delivery, personal resources, raw material.
• Unit cost reduction for stents up to $ 100, with a unit margin of 500%.

Co-development. It seeks to co-develop technology in order to scale.

APPLICATION

This technology allows the manufacture of tubular medical microdispositions.

In 2012, 17.5 million people died of cardiovascular disease worldwide, 31% of total deaths. In cases such as myocardial infarction, the difficult open heart surgery can be replaced by stents, technology produced by the TUBULAR PRINTER 3D printer. In 2013, sales of stents were $ 4.89 billion, which could reach $ 5.65 billion by 2020.
