Listen in on a conversation with the largest medical device brands in the U.S. on how they're using B9Creations additive manufacturing technology, how it has changed the way they design, how to bridge from prototyping to production, and where additive is headed next.
The B9 Core Series: Printing the Unprintable
Kevin Herrera is a Senior Engineer in Advanced R&D at Johnson & Johnson, specializing in cardiovascular medical devices. In this video, he explains the difficulty he faced when trying to 3D print a complex 2 x 2 x 4 mm part, representative of a catheter component, that failed on various 3D printers. He sent the part to B9Creations expecting the same result, however, it came out perfectly, and Kevin received his part the next day! Now, he’s getting this type of part in minutes on their multiple commercial and custom B9 Core Series 3D printers in-house.
