Renishaw, Gloucestershire, UK, will contribute its metal Additive Manufacturing knowledge and technical expertise to a new medical centre in London, Ontario, Canada, the company has revealed. The centre, Additive DEsign In Surgical Solutions (ADEISS), is being developed in partnership between Western University, the London Medical Network and Renishaw, and will focus on the research, development and commercialisation of additively manufactured medical devices, technologies and surgical instruments.

For its part in the collaboration, Renishaw will take the lead on the development of Additive Manufacturing processes for titanium and cobalt chrome medical devices and surgical tools, including replacement joints, jigs and guides. Once developed, these devices will be available to the medical, dental and orthopaedic sectors and aim to help push the boundaries of healthcare practices in North America and beyond.

ADEISS is the first business to come out of the London Medical Innovation and Commercialisation Network, a fund to develop healthcare businesses in the city. The business received CAD 1.5 million from this fund, CAD 1 million from Western University and a further CAD 1.5 million of in-kind support. Renishaw has invested an additional CAD 3 million. The centre is currently pursuing ISO 13485 accreditation in the US, Canada and Europe.

“Renishaw is very excited to be a fundamental part of the ADEISS programme,” explained Dafydd Williams, President of Renishaw Canada. “Following on from the great success of our Healthcare Centre of Excellence located in Miskin, South Wales, ADEISS will be crucial in Renishaw’s ability to impact the North American market. We anticipate this uniquely placed facility will yield many new innovations in both medical device design and the use of additive manufacturing technology, to push the boundaries of current thinking and design in this technically very demanding field.”

Renishaw recently launched its inaugural North American Solutions Centre in Kitchener, Canada, which provides companies with access to its Additive Manufacturing systems to develop and test new products and advance their confidence with the technology.
