Abstract

Custom designed orthopedic implant components based on computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data has gained in popularity over the past years. The literature shows many instances where custom designed implants are the only option. A common problem has been to efficiently fabricate the custom designed components and rapid prototyping technologies have been used to some extent. Direct fabrication of fully dense biocompatible metals like Ti6Al4V might offer a solution. This paper will cover direct fabrication of custom designed components using electron beam melting (EBM) technology. Material properties and microstructures of thin-walled sections will be discussed and compared to traditionally machined components. Finish machining of near-net shaped parts produced with the EBM system will be discussed as well.
