Sourcing components for designs such as ventilators can be a key issue. The AM Network connects users, designers and 3D printing service providers to enable faster and less complicated production of spare parts for machines such as ventilators. The Siemens AM network is available globally and covers the entire design chain, from uploading and simulating designs to checking the design and then printing and associated services. 

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 network.

“Having worked on Additive Manufacturing for years, we offer AM solutions along the entire value chain and can print 3D parts quickly according to acute demands. To help fight Covid-19, we have opened our AM Network for hospitals and other health institutions needing spare medical parts to efficiently manage their design and printing requests”, said Klaus Helmrich, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens and CEO of Siemens Digital Industries. 

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.
