From now on, doctors, hospitals and organizations with medical equipment needs, as well as 3D printing designers and service providers with medical certification qualifications, can register and access the Siemens AMN Additive Manufacturing Network platform for free. “Siemens has many years of experience in additive manufacturing and can provide additive manufacturing solutions across the entire value chain, and can quickly print 3D components for various urgent needs. To help fight the new coronavirus, we have spare parts for medical devices. Hospitals and other medical institutions in need have opened up the AMN Additive Manufacturing Network platform to efficiently manage their design and printing needs,” said Klaus Helmrich, Member of the Management Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Siemens Digital Industries.
Additive solution designers and engineers from Siemens, as part of the AMN Additive Manufacturing Network platform, can interface with various design requirements and convert the designs into printable files, which are then provided by AMN Additive Manufacturing Network platform partners.
of medically certified 3D printers to print these medical devices. In addition to numerous 3D printing equipment from partners, Siemens 3D printers have also been connected to the AMN Additive Manufacturing Network platform, and are used to print spare parts for local medical devices, subject to relevant conditions. In addition, printing equipment from other service providers can also be quickly added to the AMN Additive Manufacturing Network platform.
