Many manufacturers who are developing new products or upgrading existing ones are well aware that 3D printing is their right hand. This is also proved by one of us and „UAB Telemed” project – a realization of the ultrasonic device head prototypes „UAB Telemed” has been working in the field of ultrasonic medical equipment design, production, and repair for 26 years. In their work, prototyping is a daily process.

The stereolithography 3D printer „Form 2″ was chosen for printing these prototypes. We chose it for the ultra-smooth, high quality surface finish after printing. The thickness of this 3D printer layer can be as low as 25μ. Ensuring high quality and accuracy is essential in the manufacture of medical devices and their prototypes, so „Form 2″ 3D printer perfectly meets all customer expectations. The surface of the printed product is very close to the final product. This facilitates product testing and improvement. For 3D printing was used standard white light sensitive resin.

Production of prototypes with the help of 3D printers not only saves production costs but also significantly reduces working time. After designing a new prototype, you only have to print it out. Unlike CNC milling or other production techniques, 3D printing is free from design constraints, rounded edges, or complex structures do not pose any problems in production. Also, it requires less human resources – a programmed 3D printer can work independently without any additional maintenance.
