3D-printed bone drill improves surgical procedures

Additive manufacturing finds its way into the operating theatre

Additive manufacturing is used in many sectors. The advantages of the technology over machining not only lead to peak performances in energy sector and aerospace, but even pave the way for ground-breaking success in the medical technology sector. One example of this is the use of a 3D-printed bone drill, which is capable of preventing possible tissue damage caused during operations with traditionally manufactured drills.
