At the current state of the art, endoprostheses are predominantly manufactured by cutting, forming or casting technologies. Another, rather new way of manufacturing implants is the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process called Beam Melting. In particular the customized production with no need for any type of tooling, combined with the unique freedom of design, sparks interest in this technology to manufacture complex and patient-specific implants.
