4:00 pm - 4:30 pm Additive manufacturing: Providing agility and flexibility for a resilient healthcare service

Abdul Haque - Technical Lead - Metal Additive Manufacturing, AMRC

The recent Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted how the manufacturing of essential medical equipment and devices can be hampered by a combination of long term service agreements, in-flexible off-shore manufacturing, standards & certification and competing global demand. However, it has also thrown the spotlight on to Additive Manufacturing as a viable method for the rapid and distributed manufacture of key products and components, enabling UK manufacturing to respond to the national demand. This presentation will highlight how AM can be exploited for rapid response, batch volume production and, via the incorporation of digital technologies, can also be used to monitor and improve patient outcomes.
