Effective implant design

Our 3D printed Cellular Titanium® structures allow the creation of EIT Smart Spinal Implants™. These implants feature highly porous macro-, micro- and nanostructures in combination with a solid framework. This mimicks cortical and cancellous bone, leading to fast and extensive bone incorporation. All EIT implants and instruments are designed and manufactured in Germany.

3D Printing of titanium

Modern additive manufacturing technologies such as metal 3D printing or SLM (Selective Laser Melting) are revolutionizing many industries. EIT Cellular Titanium® structures are produced with SLM. A laser beam selectively melts a thin layer of titanium powder on pre-defined spots. By repeating this layer-by-layer, a 3-dimensional structure is formed.

Our medical 3D printed porous titanium implants receive a proprietary acid etching and a heat treatment to ensure a 100% removal of titanium powder and to harden the material. The whole process is cost-effective and allows manufacturing of geometries that cannot be done with traditional machining. It is ideal for highly specialized spinal implants.

EIT Cellular Titanium®
as the solution

We started from scratch to create an osteo influential scaffold and effective implant designs. EIT Cellular Titanium® allows us to produce porous titanium cages that combine the biocompatibility of titanium material with improved biomechanical and bone incorporative qualities. The porous titanium scaffold combines specific macro structural, micro structural and nano structural characteristics, which synergistically influence the bony fusion process.
