March 19: ASTM’s Medical Device Verification Workshop

This Tuesday, March 19th, at 10 am, ASTM International is slated to conduct a free, online Additive Manufacturing (AM) Medical Device Verification Workshop. This initiative is being spearheaded by the F42 subcommittee focusing on AM medical applications (F42.07.03). ASTM representative, Ryan Kircher from rms Company articulated that this workshop aims to shape the future of 3D printed medical device testing by identifying vital new parameters that could profit from further enhancement or complete standardization. This workshop will feature numerous speakers, facilitating participants to engage with industry stalwarts to explore, scrutinize, and promote new technologies. In addition, they can acquire knowledge about new test methods that could expedite AM use for the manufacture of medical devices, amongst other things.

The application of Additive Manufacturing (AM) in the fabrication of medical devices has been prevalent for over 20 years and has recently witnessed a nearly exponential surge in FDA approved devices. Despite this progress, the industry continues to heavily depend on outdated testing procedures designed for other manufacturing methods for verification and quality control. These methods are not optimized for the additive manufacturing process.

Join a complimentary workshop to contribute to the future of additive manufacturing medical device testing.
