EBM (Electron Beam Melting) technology can be used successfully to obtain cellular solids in metallic biomaterials that can greatly increase osseointegration in arthroprothesis and at the same time maintain good mechanical properties. The investigated structures, called Trabecular Titanium, usually cannot be obtained by traditional machining. Two samples:(More)
In this work, two different cellular solid structures, obtained by EBM using grade 2 Titanium powders, were investigated. Relative density was evaluated comparing different methods, the mean diameter of the singular open porosity was calculated by SEM image post-processing; the chemical composition was evaluated using Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy(More)
Electron Beam Melting (EBM) process was used to prepare porous scaffolds with controlled porosity to ensure optimal levels of osteointegration for different trabeculae sizes. Morphological characterization by means of SEM analyses was carried out to assess pore dimensions; tensile, compression and adhesion tests have been carried out to determine the(More)
