ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Kyocera, a leader in ceramics-based medical devices, will unveil its “CAM” (ceramic additive manufacturing) customized 3D printing service for cost-effective prototypes of new medical device designs at the MD&M West Medical Expo in Anaheim, Calif., August 10-12, the world’s largest annual convention for medical product designers and manufacturers. Kyocera’s new service utilizes both zirconia and alumina materials in a wide variety of shapes, a size range of 200 x 105 x 40mm and wall thickness of 0.25-10mm. The simple 3-step process rapid-produces samples: simply send a 3D CAD file, complete a consultation the next day and then prototypes are created in 1-2 weeks*. Additionally, Kyocera will also be showcasing its wide range of ceramics-based medical technologies during the expo.
Rapid Custom Samples with CAM
Incorporating 60+ years of product development expertise, Kyocera’s engineers consult on each new project and devise the most cost-effective method for a 3D printed prototype of new medical device designs.
