3D printing services provider Shapeways announced the expansion of its medical device customer base within its Enterprise Manufacturing Solutions division with the signing of two significant agreements. These strategic partnerships are expected to generate approximately $2.5 million in annual revenue over the next three years.
As an FDA-certified manufacturer, Shapeways is strongly positioned in the medical device industry. With its additive manufacturing services, the company delivers high-quality, customized products in a short time frame. Its customer base includes providers of orthopedic solutions, surgical guides and sleep aids.
“By segmenting data from DICOM images, we enable the creation of highly personalized medical aids and devices through additive manufacturing. These tools increase precision in surgical settings and drastically improve patient outcomes,” said Greg Kress, CEO of Shapeways. “The ability to produce patient-specific medical devices at high volumes with exceptional quality is a key market differentiator–and our superpower at Shapeways.”
Shapeways works with its medical device customers to develop custom manufacturing solutions that support business growth. These processes minimize the risk of contamination and improve the patient experience.
“We actively seek to collaborate with organizations that drive medical innovation,” said Aidan O’Sullivan, GM of Enterprise Solutions for Shapeways. “The beauty of 3D printing is it fits so well in this space, allowing us to adapt in design and production, and respond to custom medical needs quickly and accurately providing unprecedented opportunities in personalized healthcare.”
Shapeways plans to enter new medical markets in South America, Asia and the Middle East and demonstrates a strong commitment to medical innovation and providing patient-specific solutions.
