The products of our customer Shukla Medical are designed for orthopaedic surgeons and have time-saving features such as quick couplings and several extraction options.

“We are now able to manufacture prototypes more efficiently and bring products to market faster, so we will continue to lead the industry! – Zack Sweitzer, product development manager at Shukla Medical

By using 17-4 PH stainless steel, Shukla Medical is able to produce a prototype from the same material as many of the final products. Metal prototypes help surgeons to imagine the use of the tools more easily.

The time to market is greatly reduced by using the carbon fiber 3D printer and the Metal X system! “We will bring many more products to market faster with our Markforged 3D printers and we finally have the design freedom to do it!”
