Axial3D, a medical segmentation and 3D printing leader, announced the grand opening of our new medical 3D Printing Centre of Excellence in Northern Ireland. This cutting-edge facility in Belfast will focus on advancing the use of 3D printing for hospitals, medical device manufacturers, and medical research organisations.
The new centre of excellence, powered by Axial3D’s cloud-based segmentation service that converts 2D medical images into patient-specific 3D models, will give even more hospitals and medical device manufacturers easy access to accurate, realistic 3D printed anatomical models.
Medical 3D Printing Centre of Excellence
Axial3D’s models, which are equipped with the most recent 3D printing technology from Stratasys, the world’s leading medical 3D printer company, will enable pre-surgical planning, simulation, device testing, patient-specific device design, and more. The centre will also be able to provide models that mimic human tissue and bone, allowing healthcare professionals and medical device companies unrivalled clinical versatility, repeatability, and accuracy.
“When I founded Axial3D, our goal was to make patient-specific care routine and our new centre will allow us to help more clinicians and surgeons improve patient outcomes and provide medical device companies an affordable way to accelerate their patient specific programs. The opening of our new Medical 3D Printing Centre of Excellence represents a significant milestone for our company and for the field of medicine, allowing us to continue pushing the boundaries of what is possible with 3D printing technology.”– Daniel Crawford, CSO and Founder, Axial 3D
Stratasys, an industry leader, invested $15 million in Axial3D in November of last year. The two companies will collaborate to make patient-specific 3D printing solutions for hospitals and medical device manufacturers more accessible, with the goal of making it a mainstream healthcare solution.
The J850™ Digital Anatomy™ 3D printer from Stratasys allows medical customers to create models that are not only accurate representations of human tissue but also biomechanically realistic when suturing, cutting, inserting, and deploying medical devices.
