01

Product idea

Be it for hospitals, research and development or economic small-series medical device manufacturing, Kumovis offers support from ideation to the market-ready product. We’re aware of our responsibility and kindly invite you to start a conversation about your individual requirements and clinical applications.

02

Process planning

In case you already have a product idea, we will be happy to help you evaluate it and find the right medical 3D printing material for its realization. Be it PEEK, PPSU or a bioresorbable polymer, we recommend carrying out a feasibility study to minimize your risks.

03

Design

Once the prototype of the medical device is available, we adapt its production for additive manufacturing with the Kumovis R1 3D printer. If value-added features such as surface functionalization are required, we offer in-house redesigns of the build part.

04

Production planning

To make 3D printing work in medicine, it takes even more than an industry-specific fused layer manufacturing system such as the Kumovis R1. The software you use to slice the build part beforehand and to automate your processes is key when planning your production.

05

Additive manufacturing

The Kumovis ecosystem stands for reproducible quality in 3D workflows and the processing of high-performance polymers. With the Kumovis R1 3D printer, software and service solutions, hospitals and medical device companies are not only improving uptimes but accelerating their go-to-market efforts.

06

Market-ready product

From ideation to the end-use application, Kumovis is your reliable partner when it comes to adopting additive manufacturing for healthcare. Get in touch with us now, and we will help you find the right solution for you.

Now that we have a common idea of how 3D printing works in medicince, we are ready to meet your challenges together.
