Endoprint is a unique production facility dedicated to the production of bone implants using additive technology. This is the production of endoprostheses made of specialised titanium alloys and non-metallic materials by additive synthesis.

Until recently, additive synthesis was a technology of the future. Very soon, it will become an integral part of our everyday lives. It can be used to create elements for artificial joints, skull patches and even entire bones. Each element is created according to the individual parameters of an individual patient.

At the time of construction, it was the first facility of its kind in Russia.

The best option both for us and for our customers is when people come to us with just an idea. Developing technology from scratch is not only interesting, but also productive. It avoids many limitations, saves a lot of money, and creates the most efficient production.

In this case, this was exactly what happened. Endoprint had an idea and a common understanding of the future product. We turned their idea into a high-tech production.

Additive derives from the word ¨to add¨. Spraying is a much more complex process than 3D printing. We take a complex shape of a patient's bone and, by gradually spraying the finest powder of complex alloys, we turn it into a finished form. We see the future body part appear gradually, like an image on photographic paper, only in volume.

But such a process, especially with a technology that was unknown in Russia (at the time of the design), has many dangers. Any fine powder tends to leak out and cause harm to humans. A fleeting external impact can change the shape or density of the final product. And yet the product is a new human bone and the patient will use it for many years. Replacing it is a difficult operation. The cost of design error is very high.

We did everything from scratch - we described the processes, combined them into a system, selected the missing equipment, developed the staff schedule.

We then integrated the technological processes into the premises in the most economical and rational way, so that the complex production could be accommodated in a comparatively small area. In essence, we shaped the entire internal life of the production.

It was difficult to calculate the amount of emissions into the atmosphere because the technology was new and there was no documentation about it. We had to get an in-depth understanding of how each piece of equipment worked. And when we came up with the best emission filtration methods, the production turned out to be absolutely environmentally friendly and safe for the environment.
