This year’s Biomedical Innovation and Outreach Programme (B.I.O.2022) has come to a great conclusion. The Programme is an initiative by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, HKU, aiming to connect young biomedical researchers to local enterprises, engineers, and mentors via outreach activities.

Koln 3D is happy to be one of B.I.O.2022’s industry partners, hosting a site visit for students in June, while company CEO, Edmond, shared career insights at the Mentor Chat Room session. A big round of applause for everyone committed in building up a supportive mentor-mentee network to foster a sustainable future for the biomedical community!

Innopreneur Experience Journey (18-19 Aug)

We are proud to be one of the I&T company hosts for Innopreneur Experience Journey, a student programme jointly organised by the Federation of Hong Kong Industries (@fhki_hk) and HKSTP (@hksciencepark).

Last Friday (19/8), we welcomed 30+ students and FHKI reps to our production site at INNOPARK (MARS Centre, Taipo), introducing the infinite world of 3D printing to our young and bright minds, while two of the participating students came onboard for a day of job shadowing and a trial session of AI-assisted graphic design. We hope this journey will inspire their interest in biomedical engineering, and open up a new perspective beyond traditional career options.

MoU signing with Department of O&T, CUHK

We are glad to have signed a MoU with the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology of CUHK. This marks a continuation of our collaboration on 3D metal addictive layer manufacturing (Metal ALM) in orthosis, orthopaedic models and implants.

With the set-up of data libraries, Koln 3D is confident this partnership will speed up research and application of 3D computer programming. We look forward to bringing more cases into production with the enhanced collaboration between doctors and engineers.

5th Seminar on Materials and Processes for the Orthopaedics, Changzhou

Koln 3D exhibited with GF Machining Solutions at the recent “5th Seminar on Materials and Processes for the Orthopaedics” in Changzhou, China. We showcased our patient-matched surgical implants, cutting jigs and Ti samples amongst 70 exhibitors, while selected landmark cases were presented to the conference participants, illustrating the advancement and possibilities of additive manufacturing.

We appreciate the help from GF Machining Solutions for the logistical arrangements, this has truly been a great opportunity for us to reach out to a wider audience in China.

Talus PSI (3rd Gen.)

Koln 3D’s Talus PSIs (3rd gen.) have been used in total talus replacement surgeries since early 2022.

Our 3rd gen. patient-matched talus implant assumed its predecessor’s scaffolding core structure design, while adding on an external porous structure to help with bone and ligament regrowth.

Koln 3D offered one-stop solution from surgical planning to product delivery, working closely with the surgeon to refine the design within the limited timeframe.

We'd like to thank everyone for the team effort in speeding up the recovery process for patients.
