Spentys

Medical 3D Printer controller

Company description


Spentys is an interactive 3D printing platform for orthopaedic medical devices. Spentys aims to reduce the gap between the complexity of the 3D printing technology and the reality of the hospitals environments. The Spentys solution goes from the 3D scanning of the patient's limb, to the 3D modelling and the 3D printing of the patient's specific cast. This solution is completely automatic and centralised on a cloud platform. It makes the process easy to use for physicians and helps them to quickly interact with the Spentys team. This solution makes the 3D printing technology directly available in the hospitals environment, and so to the patients.

Searched Profile

The goal of the internship is to develop and optimize the 3D printing process to produce the cast. The intern will lead the production of the medical devices. He will then be in charge of the optimization of the 3D printing parameters, the maintenance of the machines, the printing of the different casts, etc.. Spentys is currently using its own-developed Fused Deposit Modelling 3D printers, completely adapted to its solution. The objective is now to grow and professionalize the manufacturing process.

The intern will be working closely with the Spentys modellers and programmer. Spentys has developed a 3D printing software to lead and manage the production. A 1-week specific training for the intern is then mandatory to understand exactly how the process works.
