White Paper - Hot Isostatic Pressing for Orthopedic Implants

The development of new production technologies over the recent years has brought a range of possibilities to manufacturers of orthopaedic implants for reconstructive joint replacement. Old truths have been challenged and new ways to increase product performance, quality and cost efficiency introduced.

Additive manufacturing (AM) is one of the technologies that have added new flexibility and value in implant manufacturing and is now an important manufacturing method for orthopaedic implants. Less known is perhaps the development within equipment for Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) that offers great opportunities to improve the performance and quality of the implant and at the same time cut production costs and lead times.
