3D Systems moves in to medtech with new Figure 4 materials

Figure 4 medtech

3D Systems are expanding the Figure 4 material set, introducing Figure 4 MED-AMB 10 and Figure 4 MED-WHT 10. With these two new materials, 3D Systems targets the medtech industry, an areas which is currently seeing a massive growth in the use of 3D printing.

Figure 4 MED-AMB 10 is a translucent amber biocompatible material and Figure 4 MED-WHT 10 is a rigid biocompatible white material that can be used for a range of medical and industrial applications.

Some of the materials highlights are:

  • Capable of meeting ISO 10993-5 & -10 standards
  • Sterilizable by autoclave
  • Able to provide true to CAD accuracy with six-sigma repeatability
  • Thermal resistance over 100C

Figure 4 MED-WHT 10 is only compatible with Figure 4 Standalone and cannot be used with the Figure 4 Modular or Figure 4 Production systems. Figure 4 MED-AMB and MED-WHT require either a version of 3D Sprint 2.12 or higher or a software update to a lower version of 3D Sprint.
