A new frontier of manufacturing research, biomedical manufacturing, is presented. Advanced manufacturing technologies, such as manufacturing processes, systems, and quality control, can be readily applied to improve the safety, quality, cost, efficiency, and speed of healthcare service and biomedical research. The analogy of the hospital as a factory is explored to broadly and inclusively define biomedical manufacturing. Characteristics and engineering needs of biomedical manufacturing are…

TLDR
This paper introduces a special issue with several medical device case studies, illustrating new developments in product design, material selection and prototype methods, and reviews medical device development research and depicts some case studies to better explain the relationship between technology/engineering and medical devices.
Medical devices: from design to production
TLDR
This special collection intends to bring together industrial and academic researchers willing to present new design methodologies, material selection and manufacturing processes, and medical device case studies, illustrating new developments in both product design and prototype methods.
Multi-objective optimisation of product quality in the manufacture of Ti-6Al-4V prostheses
TLDR
The aim of this procedure is to develop machining performance models through a minimal and progressive Design of Experiment (DoE), which models the variables of interest by linear regressions or Surface Response Models (SRMs).
