Meeting MS&T22: Materials Science & Technology
Symposium CANCELLED: Metal Materials for Biomedical Purposes Through Advanced Manufacturing: Bulk and Surface Properties
Organizer(s) Silvia Spriano, Politecnico di Torino
Sara Ferraris, Politecnico di Torino
Yolanda Susanne Hedberg, University of Western Ontario
James Noel, University of Western Ontario
Scope Additive manufacturing of metals is now claimed as an industrial manufacturing process with broad perspectives for biomedical purposes. It is suitable both for permanent (Ti, Ti alloys) and bioresorbable (iron, zinc and magnesium alloys) implants. In addition, the use of laser or e-beam is gaining interest to tailor surface properties. This symposium will focus on some peculiar properties of bulk metal materials manufactured either by additive manufacturing or other advanced techniques including surface treatments with e-beam/laser melting and re-solidification.

The focus is on phase transformations, microstructure, and topography, and their correlation with corrosion resistance in biological environments, biocompatibility, and biological response (tissue integration, bacteria adhesion).

Industrial applications are focused on biomaterials or biomedical devices where surface, structure, microstructure, and bulk properties of advanced manufactured alloys are an issue to extending the component lifetime and increasing the efficiency/functionality of the device.

This symposium will be an opportunity for scientists and companies to meet, share ideas, compare different solutions and strategies, learn, and network in an efficient way through an academic-industrial forum useful for professional development.
