The M220 is the world’s first 3D printer designed specifically for the manufacturing of medical products and implants made out of PEEK. Apium Tec company provides a cost-effective solutions to manufacture customized implants and not only.
The hot-air filter system analyses the component geometry and adapts the heating power so that an optimum energy input is always achieved. The air flow enclosing the component is filtered in a practically particle-free circuit.
Our extruder was developed regarding flexibility and durability. The four times higher feed force compared to the previous model enables a precise material flow. All components in contact with the printing material are made of medically compatible materials: PEEK, titanium, 316L steel and PTFE.
In cooperation with Evonik, materials and filaments were tested for their biocompatibility and the corresponding tests were successfully completed. This allows medical devices up to Class III to be manufactured from PEEK.
