Additive manufacturing of biodegradable Zn-xMg alloys : Effect of Mg content on manufacturability, microstructure and mechanical properties
Materials today / Communications 32
Additive Manufacturing (AM) exhibits tremendous advantages in producing customized medical implants and has achieved successful clinical applications for non-degradable metals such as titanium, stainless steel and cobalt alloys, particularly in the form of porous scaffolds for bone implants. Biodegradable materials allow the metal to degrade while natural tissue grows thereby reducing implant lifetime within the body to a minimum. The design freedom of AM and especially Laser Powder Bed Fusiondoi:10.18154/rwth-2022-07703 fatcat:zipkci4pnncbrgjzagoxkpxxxm
