1 Electron Beam Melted (EBM ) Ti-based medical implants or How implant manufacturers use to reduce production costs and increase profits

2 Arcam Swedish innovation from the beginning of the 1990 s Arcam AB incorporated 1997 Listed on Nordic Growth Market Main owner (25%) Industrifonden (Industrial capital trust) Turnover 10.1 M (2010) First EBM system delivered in 2003 About 70 systems installed worldwide 50 people, in Sweden, the U.S., Italy and China Sales partners in Europe and Asia

3

4 Electron Beam Melting (EBM ) A high energy beam (up to W) is generated in the electron beam gun The beam melts each layer of metal powder to the desired geometry The high beam power gives high build rate (up to 80 cm 3 /h) and productivity Extremely fast beam translation with no moving parts Vacuum process eliminates impurities and yields excellent material properties High process temperature (700 ºC for titanium) gives low residual stress > no need for heat treatment Low operating costs

5 Overview Applications Medical Implants Aerospace Arcam Products Materials Medical Implants

6 EBM - Core Benefits Freedom in design Excellent material properties Cost-efficient production And, for implant manufacturing

7 Production Technology for Trabecular Structures Design your trademark trabecular structure in CAD Optimize for osseointegration Competitive manufacturing costs Pore geometry (no limitation) Pore size (down to ~400 µm) Porosity (up to ~85%) EBM production cost, typical: < 2 / cm3 trabecular structure 7

8 Bio-Compatibility Pictures of bone growing into EBM-manufactured titanium implants with Trabecular Structures Courtesy of Professor Peter Thomsen, MD, Dept. of Biomaterials, University of Gothenburg

9 Implant Categories Acetabular cups Revision cups Augments Femoral stems CMF Spine Shoulders Triflanges Tibial trays Femoral knees In production with EBM

10 Production Technology for Production Benefits Single-step production of solid and porous sections, with structural continuity between them All-porous implants possible (augments, wedges, ) No secondary high temperature process to apply the porous structure that could cause grain growth High process temperature gives low residual stress, and no need for heat treatment after the build

11 Cost Savings with EBM The additional cost for applying a porous coating on an acetabular cup can be anything from 30 to 60 per cup With EBM you produce the cups with an integrated porous structure, which eliminates this cost When producing acetabular cups from bar, 60-70% of the stock material is typically machined away With EBM you only use the material needed to produce the cups. The remaining powder is recycled and reused

12 EBM Production Cost, typical of Ti6Al4V acetabular cups with integrated trabecular structures Cup Weight Build Batches per Cups per Production size cup, build time / batch week batch cost / cup (g) (h) ( ) Includes costs for EBM system, material, Support & Maintenance agreement and operator

13 CE-certified Implants since 2007 CE-certified acetabular cups with integrated, engineered Trabecular Structures since 2007 Implants with FDA clearance since 2010 > 40,000 cups manufactured > 20,000 cups implanted Adler Ortho, IT 2007 Lima-Lto, IT 2007 Exactech, US

14 Summary EBM lets you design and produce unique trademark Trabecular Structures with minimum investment EBM offers a uniquesingle-step production method for solid and porous implants EBM provides structural continuity between solid and porous sections, and requires no heat treatment EBM is a proven and cost-efficient technology, with thousands of implanted CE-approved products

15 Overview Applications Medical Implants Aerospace Arcam Products Materials Aerospace

16 Turbine Blades Material: γ-tial Size: 8 x 12 x 325 mm Weight: 0,5 kg Build time: 7 hours / blade For stages 6 and 7 in the low pressure turbine in General Electric s GEnx aero engine, where the TiAl (~4 g/cm3) replaces blades made in heavier (>8 g/cm3) nickel-based superalloys
