Spinal cage

The increasing complexity of medical implants requires more and more new ways to manufacture these in series. This applies most to the spinal column. It is the central load-bearing part of the body and places high demands on the implant. To ensure a reliable adhesion, laser beam melting, an additive manufacturing technology, is the method of choice. This technology makes it possible to produce highly complex products made from metallic materials, in our example the titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V. To support bone ingrowth, the shown cages feature a rough surface combined with a lattice structure in the interior region.
