Prayasta, a Bengaluru-based, ‘mental property-driven startup’, based by Shilpi Sen, is revolutionizing the Indian breast implant business – with 3D printing. Extra particularly, with Implant-grade Elastomer Additive Manufacturing (iEAM). The ‘deeptech-in-manufacturing’ firm is creating breast implants and prostheses which can be, in keeping with the corporate, rupture resistant and absolutely personalised in form, measurement, weight, contact, and really feel.
“We perceive that each lady is exclusive and so are their our bodies, so must be their implants and prostheses. We strongly really feel that merchandise ought to suit you, quite than you becoming them. That’s the reason our merchandise are personalised for every one among you,” reads Prayasta’s web site. “Our ‘Made-to-Match’ strategy addresses all the necessities which can be distinctive in so some ways. Our present focus areas are breast implants for reconstruction surgical procedures and wearable breast prostheses for exterior use. Our focus is derived from our energy with additive manufacturing know-how, abilities in bio-compatible supplies, and fervour within the healthcare area.”
Prayasta 3D prints these breast implants utilizing a Silimac P250 – a 3D printer developed for ‘implant-grade’ elastomers, and particularly well-suited to the printing of silicone (though it’s suitable with all elastomeric, two-component, or comparable supplies). This industrial printer is designed to function, uninterruptedly, for lengthy manufacturing hours, and may maintain as much as 14,000 mL of silicone in a single refill. The printer’s in-built UV sterilization ensures the system is contamination-free.
Based on Prayasta, “It’s [the Silimac P250] meticulous design maintains the sterility of the printing atmosphere and the fabric producing highest quality merchandise appropriate for medical functions and long-term implantations.”
The Silimac P250 relies on Implant-grade Elastomer Additive Manufacturing (iEAM) know-how. The printer’s specs embody a 250 x 250 x 250mm construct platform, a 50-micron printing decision, a 150°C mattress temperature, and a ten.1″ touchscreen show. Appropriate supplies embody NuSil MED-4830 and NuSil MED-4820 implant-grade Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSR), and Silopren LSR 2650. Implant-grade silicones are the purest type of silicone, and are platinum-based formulations manufactured in a managed atmosphere, and validated by means of stringent high quality management.
