HP Multi Jet Fusion technology helps Brinter launch its innovative bioprinting solutions faster and more affordably

Brinter® Bioprinting Solutions include over 60 3D-printed parts using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, making up 75% of all the custom-made medical equipment 3D parts found in the machine.

Introduction

Brinter®, a trailblazing Finnish bioprinting company, provides comprehensive 3D bioprinting solutions and services for the MedTech industry.

Their vision is to improve worldwide health and save lives by advancing bioprinting technologies and increasing applicable uses. That is why they custom-build each of their Brinter® Bioprinters to manufacture them in a way that fits their clients’ specific applications and needs.

Currently, their Brinter® Bioprinter platform can be used in a variety of applications, such as a versatile tool for basic research in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. 3D bioprinting solutions also offer a cost-effective approach to shorten and enhance the drug discovery process.

Challenge

When using traditional manufacturing methods, new versions of Brinter’s medical components required several weeks or months to be tested.

At the same time, relying on geographically distributed suppliers represented a risk, especially during globally challenging times.

3DTech, the company that Brinter uses to manufacture its parts, relies on HP Multi Jet Fusion technology to speed R&D and NPI processes. Components can now be tested within days, new ideas are translated more quickly into final products, and the company is able to launch innovative technology and protocols to market much faster, which leads to cost savings as there
Solution

“The combination of HP’s 3D medical equipment printing, 3DTech’s services, and Brinter’s products is a match made in heaven, as each of the companies shares a passion for additive manufacturing,” says Tomi Kalpio, CEO and co-founder of Brinter.

The Brinter® platform is unique in the medical market due to its high modularity and authentic multi-material printing capabilities—all features made possible because of HP 3D Printing for medical equipment.

The internal shapes of the boxes, including the integrated 3D-printed sockets for all individual electrical and pneumatics components, tubings, and cover plates, were printed with the HP Jet is no need to keep any parts in stock.

Furthermore, HP 3D Printing plays a crucial role in the manufacturing of Brinter’s portfolio of end-parts; these parts are optimized for the user, not the manufacturing method, which is an essential aspect of this kind of high-tech.

Finally, HP’s products fit in perfectly with Brinter’s sustainability goals. Since parts can be manufactured by 3DTech, there is no need to ship parts from suppliers across the globe. Also MJF’s material recyclability percentage is very high, which was one of the critical points when analyzing the most suitable medical equipment 3D printing process and partner for Brinter’s needs.

Results

The Brinter® Bioprinter is a modular, authentic multi-material printer that can be scaled up for mass production. “It is amazing to see how the 3D Printing industry has changed over the past 20 years since my introduction to 3D technology. The technology was then called “rapid prototyping”, and for a reason.

For example, if you think about HP’s mass production systems or our multi-material printing systems, today’s technology is radically different compared to what we had back then. Now we can produce the parts with the same production method as the prototypes, fast and in series with the ability to personalize and develop parts further without requiring changes in the manufacturing process,” said Kalpio.

Some of these applications will, in the future, facilitate clinical solutions that use bioprinting for the treatment of diseases.

HP 3D Printing for medical equipment enabled the creation of innovative business solutions out of new print tools and options, which in turn expanded the material and printing protocol portfolio for Brinter in the short run. This makes Brinter a global technology forerunner in the bio- and medical industries, and in the areas of material research and development.
