Numerous companies are developing, launching and talking about their products that are manufactured via additive manufacturing/3D printing, as well as entering into partnerships to support their efforts. Or, in the case of Stryker, constructing its own 3D printing manufacturing facility for initial support in its knee and spine segments. 

Join the discussion during OMTEC 2016, with three sessions focused on additive manufacturing:

  • Special panel discussion and closing reception: With experts from 3D Systems, Arcam, Stryker, Zimmer Biomet and more, followed by a closing reception.
