Since few years, an intense research activity has been undertaken on obtaining orthopedic implants by direct laser manufacturing. Metallic (titanium alloys) heap implants have been the first parts obtained by laser cladding, with dental implants (chromium cobalt alloys) obtained by selective laser melting. In parallel, different studies have been initiated on direct manufacturing of bioceramics. These materials have the main advantage to be completely or partly replaced by real bone after… CONTINUE READING
