Medical (Tech) companies and medical technology, in short Medtech, can benefit from the 3D printing technique. During the development of medical technological innovations, depending on the stage of the innovation, the 3D printing technique is perfect to use. 3D printing can for example easily support new companies or innovations with prototypes (fast and inexpensive). For more developed companies and innovations, the entrepreneur with small series of end products can keep the stocks low and remains flexible in adjusting the design. The technology allows the components to be optimized in for example the lead time, weight and cost. Oceanz can print the Medtech products with an ISO 13485 certificate.
