Pune, India – Prayasta launches the world’s first 3D printer for implant-grade silicone at the Centre for BioSystems Science and Engineering (BSSE), Indian Institute of Science (IISc).
Prayasta’s specialized 3D printer, Silimac P250 is a 3D printer developed for ‘implant-grade’ elastomers (and, especially silicone) for making personalized soft-tissue implants and prosthesis. It is an industrial-level machine made to work reliably and uninterruptedly for long production hours. Silimac P250 can hold upto 14,000 mL of silicone in a single refill and is truly production scale ready.
It’s meticulous design maintains the sterility of the printing environment and the material producing best quality products suitable for medical applications and long-term implantations.
3D printed implants that are prepared using Silimac can be personalised not only in terms of shape, size, and contour but also in terms of weight, stiffness, touch and feel making it a complete solution.
