Paragon Medical begins work on new AM facility in Indiana

Medical product provider Paragon Medical has announced the construction of a new additive manufacturing facility in Pierceton, Indiana. Located at the firm’s existing campus, the 34,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility will be dedicated entirely to 3D printing with systems developed by OEM 3D Systems.

An initial investment of $16 million will go into the factory, with an additional expected investment of $19 million over the next five years. The funding will cover the facility, printers, inspection, and any additional support equipment that Paragon will use to vertically integrate additive manufacturing into its day-to-day workflows. Although the facility will initially focus of 3D printing titanium implants, the firm intends to expand into other metals and polymers for more advanced medical device applications.

“Indiana’s reputation as the Orthopedics Capital of the World continues to grow thanks to companies like Paragon Medical,” said David Rosenberg, Executive Vice President for the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). “Their commitment to growing in the Hoosier state shows the confidence Paragon Medical has in our business-friendly environment and talent pipeline, and we look forward to continuing to work with the company as they continue to grow in Indiana.”

Forward AM establishes AM Applications Technology Center in Detroit

Forward AM, the 3D printing arm of chemicals company BASF, has opened a new Additive Manufacturing Applications Technology Center (ATC) in Detroit, together with Michigan State University. The ATC will act as a technical hub to help foster 3D printing innovation with the firm’s customers in North America.

Specifically, the ATC will offer a set of value-added technical services such as predictive modeling, all in a bid to improve innovation potential for customers. Forward AM has already installed more than 20 3D printers at the center, including SLS, SLA, and FDM systems.
