Material evaluation, material processing
The demands on implant materials and on their manufacturing and processing are getting higher and higher with regard to cost efficiency and biocompatibility (e.g. a more detailed knowledge of the chemical composition of the bulk and on the surface). At the same time, the requirements increase due to the increasing design complexity of the implants.
Which new materials, manufacturing and machining procedures for implants provide an even better biocompatibility, more optimum property combinations and / or more cost-efficient production?
