Webinar details

Leading orthopedic implant manufacturer Croom Medical needed a faster and more reliable way to develop osseointegrative structured spinal implants, so they turned to nTop to create multi-lattice structures and Renishaw’s Quantum technology to print the complex structures. In this webinar, you’ll get an up-close look at the project, and see how nTop and Renishaw enabled Croom Medical to produce a stronger, more effective implant in less time. Hear from Dr. Shane Keaveney, Research and Development Manager at Croom Medical, and John Laureto, AM Americas Business Manager at Renishaw. They will be joined by Mandy Rosengren, Senior Solutions Engineer at nTop.

You’ll learn:

  • How to design a medical implant with multi-lattice structures.
  • How to develop and print lattice structures using Renishaw’s L-PBF additive manufacturing technology.
  • How mechanical simulation can help you iterate quickly.

You’ll also get an up-close look at how Croom Medical uses Renishaw’s advanced AM technology, nTop’s latticing and simulation capabilities and see a real crush test performed on the implants.

The webinar will take place July 24 at 12:00 EDT/ 9:00 PDT
