The ability to manufacture detailed structures more efficiently as well the the combination of 3D imaging technology (MRI, CT) to create patient-specific digital images and print from this data is compelling to an industry always looking for ways to improve and change lives. From serialized implants, patient-matched models, devices and instruments to the potential of printing tissues for drug testing and replacement organs, medical applications of additive technologies are growing quickly.
The SME Medical Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing (AM/3DP) Workgroup and the MMI series at RAPID + TCT will play a vital role in defining AM/3DP for both traditional device and point-of-care manufacturers and helping to break down barriers to expanded use in medicine. There’s no better time than now to share your innovative research, case study or application with an audience laser-focused on medical AM/3DP. Become a RAPID + TCT 2018 Speaker!
RAPID + TCT will be offering two different presentation formats. You will have the option to select the presentation type(s) that you are interested in when submitting your abstract. All presentations should be technical and focus on providing “how-to” information for the audience.
What you can expect form the MMI audience at RAPID + TCT:
Become a speaker to share your knowledge and contribute to a dynamic conference focused on red-hot AM/3DP for use in medical and biomedical applications.
Dick Aubin Distinguished Paper Award
The Dick Aubin Distinguished Paper Award seeks to recognize those who present a technical paper that features a successful and innovative application of rapid technologies and additive manufacturing. The paper will be selected based on 1) Technical merit 2) Impact on the rapid technologies and additive manufacturing industry 3) Overall relevance and paper quality.
To qualify for consideration:
