3D tech helps GVSU create medical devices

Food and Drug Administration-approved materials are used in the process, and the method doesn't require the injection molds and other components used in traditional manufacturing.

"It's going to allow us to fabricate parts that quite literally could go right off the machine and after cleaning, go right into a med device," Nowak said.

“What this offers us is the potential for reducing time to market, reducing the front-end costs of contract manufacturing including tooling and injection molding parts," said Rick Shorey of MediSurge, a West Michigan-based manufacturer partnering with GVSU.

He said the technology could cut production time for new parts by nearly six months. Watch Video
