Additive manufacturing (AM) has shown during the last couple years that it adds value by offering freedom of design and efficient manufacturing and additionally, it helps avoid limitations of conventional manufacturing. The orthopaedic industry is successfully embracing AM with an annual average growth rate of 20-30% of orthopaedic additively manufactured devices. Companies in highly regulated industries, such as orthopaedics, require a robust quality system to ensure product and service quality. To ensure a good-quality level from the beginning to the end of the process, it is imperative that manufacturers partner with companies that embrace this quality-focused philosophy and maintain the same level of commitment to quality.
