Rapid Shape, a leading global manufacturer of professional and custom 3D printers, revealed its new generation of 3D printers for the hearing aid industry: Studio-Line HA20 II, HA30 II and HA40 II Rapid Shape.
While the open system allows all printers flexible use of different materials, the Studio-Line suits beginners with its low acquisition costs and shops up to medium-sized producers with its fast turnaround times. The HA20 II creates several ear pieces in as little as 30 minutes.
The HA30 II and HA40 II offer high productivity capacity. Features of the HA30 II include its compact device dimension, while the HA40 II has a slightly larger building platform (150 x 85 mm).
The 3D printers are offered with optional remote maintenance that ensure an annual renewal of the Biocompatibility Certificate according to the Medical Devices Directive. Modern remote technology ensures effective and professional service while maintenance cost is significantly reduced.
“The new Hearing printers make it quicker and easier to produce professional and biocompatible hearing aid parts. Rapid Shape has worked closely with our customers and material partners to develop the new generation of 3D printers that meet and exceed current needs,” says CEO Andreas Schultheiss. “Our optional remote maintenance is a win-win for customer, material partner and system manufacturer. The total costs could be reduced by up to 50% while preserving medical device directive compliant processes.”
