Scheduled ical Google outlook Event Webinar

Metal 3D printing for medical devices is continually on the rise as physicians and researchers are increasingly taking advantage of the technology’s boundless flexibility. From preoperative planning to surgical guide production and patient specific implants, 3D printing of biocompatible metals offers many unique benefits for greater surgical success and reduced patient recovery times at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional methods. The ability to rapidly produce customized prosthetics is also helping to overcome long standing challenges in orthopedics, helping to ensure a better fit, improved performance and overall patient outcomes.

In this webinar, we are fortunate to hear from a diverse panel of experts who will share with us their latest research & development, industry insights, and entrepreneurial activities. We will also have breakout rooms following the webinar for 30 minutes of networking. This serves to network freely and to connect Pitch3D start-ups and investors during the breakout session, you can apply here. The on-demand recording will also be available here after the event.

Laura Kastenmayer

Industry Manager Medical Technology, Additive Manufacturing


Laura Kastenmayer is the responsible Industry Manager for Medical Technology at TRUMPF Additive Manufacturing. Starting her career as an application engineer for Additive Manufacturing in 2017, she had to deal with all questions related to process and parameter set-up as well as freedom and restrictions in design and material. These topics have been no news to her since she already got involved with powder bed fusion Additive Manufacturing during her bachelor and master studies of Medical Technology at Friedrich-Alexander-University in Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. In her current role as Industry Manager, she has already overseen several customer projects from first contact to machine installation and equipment qualification of the TruPrint machines. TRUMPF’s TruPrint machines enable customers to manufacture metallic high-quality parts in different shapes and sizes fulfilling the specific requirements of mechanical properties, detail resolution and cost per part.
