Protolabs is using MD&M Minneapolis this week to promote its new “true silicone” 3D printing offering that is gaining attention from medical device developers.

“It’s only been out for a couple of months, but it’s getting really good reception from medical customers,” said David Giebenhain, Protolabs’ global product director of 3D printing. (Check out Protolabs at Booth No. 2300 at MD&M Minneapolis — which runs today and tomorrow.)

The offering helps set Protolabs a cut above other 3D printing providers who offer materials that are “like” the real thing, but not the actual material.

The Maple Plain, Minnesota–based quick-turn manufacturing giant is offering true s…

Pulse Technologies (Quakertown, Pa.) used this week’s MD&M Minneapolis to show off its new hierarchical surface restructuring (HSR) tech, promoting its ability to modify the surface of implantable electrodes and microelectrode arrays.

Pulse Technologies officials think the offering could boost innovation in the neuromodulation and cardiac rhythm management space — as well as other medtech applications.

The tunable process uses ultrashort pulse lasers to engineer the surface of an electrode versus using specialized coatings.

HSR, according to Pulse Technologies, can enable smaller electrodes with enhanced electrochemical performance, durability, sensitivity and resolution.
