On March 26, Siemens announced in response to the ongoing global health crisis caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, Siemens is making its Additive Manufacturing (AM) Network along with its 3D printers, available to the global medical community to speed design and production of medical components.
COVID-19 is short for coronavirus disease 2019. On March 11, the World Health Organization determined that the virus is now a global pandemic, meaning it has spread worldwide.
Siemens also announced its designers and engineers that are a part of the AM Network are available to answer design requests. These designers, engineers and service providers with 3D printers can offer expertise through the AM Network
Starting March 26 doctors, hospitals and organizations in need of medical devices as well as designers and service providers with medically certified printing capacities can register for free access to the Siemens AM Network.
Siemens’ designers and engineers are a part of the AM Network so they can answer design requests and help convert designs into printable files. Afterwards, these components can be printed via medically certified 3D printers of partner companies that are also part of the AM Network. In addition to numerous 3D printers from partner companies, Siemens’ 3D printing machines are also connected to the network and if suitable, will also be used to locally print components and spare parts for medical devices. Printing capacities from additional service providers can easily be added to the AM Network.
