The application of polymer excipients in 3D printing manufacturing is usually limited due to the concerns of filament strength, high processing temperature and large-scale manufacturing. Latest technology developments are targeting a direct melt deposition to simplify the process and enable a constant and efficient process. Two different processing approaches will be presented: The advanced melt drop deposition, where individual three-dimensional geometries can be created by deposition of polymer droplets, and the MED® 3D printing technology which allows precise layer-by-layer deposition to produce objects with well-designed geometric structures.
In this webinar, you will learn:
