RMS is a large medical device manufacturer that started its additive journey with one metal 3D printer. Five years later, it has grown its additive division to include 30 laser powder bed fusion machines running around the clock to produce more than 10,000 implants per month. Earlier this year, hosts Pete Zelinski and Julia Hider visited the facility and learned how metal 3D printing operates on such a large scale. Then, they discuss RMS’s additive machine shop—an area set up specifically to finish metal 3D printed parts—and explain why machining 3D printed parts is so different than machining parts from stock.
