"Advances in Patient-Specific 3D Printed Metal Implants" conference

Our 3-day conference on "Advances in Patient-Specific 3D Printed Metal Implants", was held earlier this month in #Grindelwald#Switzerland. Koln 3D takes pride in supporting this international event, which brought together professionals from more than 15 countries.

The conference served as a platform to connect over 60 experts specializing in additive manufacturing, medicine, orthopaedics, engineering, and advanced materials. Through insightful presentations and discussions, we fostered an open and vibrant environment for knowledge exchange and innovation. It was a privilege to witness the convergence of expertise and perspectives, highlighting the transformative potential of additive manufacturing in clinical applications across various anatomies and through different case studies.

Koln 3D extends its heartfelt gratitude to all the attendees, speakers, and partners who made this conference a resounding success. Your enthusiasm, expertise, and unwavering support were instrumental in creating an enriching and memorable experience for everyone involved. We are truly inspired by the collective passion and dedication of our fellow colleagues and look forward to building upon this momentum and continuing to improve surgical outcomes with additive manufacturing and customized solutions.

Clinical AM forum: Advances in Patient-Specific 3D Printed Metal Implants – From Design to Clinical Use

Koln 3D, HKUMed, and Microcity are pleased to announce our joint collaboration in hosting a comprehensive 3-day course on "Advances in Patient-Specific 3D Printed Metal Implants – From Design to Clinical Use." The course will take place from 7th to 9th March 2024 in Grindelwald, Switzerland.

The congress will be covering a range of topics, including materials selection, production and post-processing techniques in additive manufacturing (AM). Esteemed colleagues from the University of Twente, Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, and the University of Hong Kong will serve as the course chairs. The course features presentations highlighting applied cases across different disciplines, including the optimized use of customized cages and fixation plates, TMJ and joint revision prosthesis, and etc., as well as discussions on some of the controversies and challenges associated with AM.

We cordially invite you to join us at this event, where medical and engineering professionals will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with leading experts in the field. We look forward to welcoming you in Grindelwald.

Hong Kong Laureate Forum: Exploring New Horizons 2024

Koln 3D is proud to be a partner of the Council of the Hong Kong Laureate Forum's (#HKLF) "Exploring New Horizons 2024" initiative. As part of this programme, high school students have the opportunity to visit local laboratories and innovative manufacturers, where they can engage in discussions with scientists, engineers and researchers.

This week, we had the pleasure of hosting students from Diocesan Girls' School (DGS) and Tsuen Wan Government Secondary School (TWGSS). By offering these students firsthand exposure to the world of medical 3D-printing, we aim to ignite their curiosity and foster a genuine passion for scientific exploration.

Hong Kong Innovation & Technology Fair

Last Saturday, Koln 3D took part in the Hong Kong Innovation & Technology Fair, alongside the Hong Kong 3D Printing Association (HK3DPA).

It was a refreshing experience for us to exhibit at a local sports ground, openly accessible to the general public, rather than the usual air-conditioned halls. It has been a great opportunity to connect with the community and showcase the practical applications of 3D printing in medicine and everyday life.
