Development of Metal Injection Moulding Process for Medical Applications

Abstract:

Article Preview

To counter the problems associated with the conventional processes of producing implants, a new approach has been invented, which is the adaptation of the injection moulding process for manufacturing the fracture fixation plates. With this technique in place, we have now taken a step in the right direction towards rapid manufacturing of fracture fixation plates, for the first time. The fracture fixation plates produced using this technique comply with the international standards including MPIF Standard 35, ISO 5832-1 and ISO 10933. The advantages of the present invention are design flexibility, rapid manufacturing, cost effectiveness and minimal waste compared to conventional process
