SLM Solutions has formally entered into a strategic partnership with Canwell Medical, a leading medical device manufacturer in China. Canwell Medical has chosen to use SLM® machines for product development of 3D printed surgical implants. SLM Solutions will provide technical and application assistance, as well as research and development support to further accelerate Canwell Medical’s product certification and serial production.

Canwell Medical, founded in 1994, is one of the largest designers, manufacturers and suppliers of orthopaedic implants, instruments and orthopaedic rehabilitation for medical instruments (CPM).

Acetabular cups and intervertebral fusion cages are some examples of the successful series production of metal parts manufactured on SLM® machines. SLM Solutions carries out many research and exploration initiatives on these two types of products, for example, continuous updates on 60-micron (µm) process parameters for titanium alloy to print the acetabular cup. In knee joint applications, SLM Solutions continuously develops 60-micron (µm) process parameters for cobalt-chromium alloy. SLM Solutions machines themselves ensure maximum safety during operation. They offer closed-loop powder handling, advanced and proven multi-laser technology, bi-directional recoating and an optimized and upgraded gas flow which ensures outstanding performance and efficient high-quality 3D printing.
