3D Printing in the Lehigh Valley (Allentown) - Valley Prosthetics & Orthotics

We enjoy working with local businesses and while we ship our BFP-ICARUS series across the USA, it is great to be able to deliver one of these units locally. Valley Prosthetics and Orthotics (VPO), a local prosthetics and orthotics business located in the Allentown, PA area, took delivery of a BFP-ICARUS-X model to allow them to produce 3D Printed sockets for evaluation purposes. With the large build area and solid construction of the unit, they are able to operate it reliably with little to no monitoring that other 3D Printers require. This will be a valuable asset to them as they continue to 3D Scan and produce 3D Printed prosthetics! It is great to know we build 3D Printers that are making a real world impact and changing lives.

3D Printing allows for custom prosthetics to be made for those on demand, normally within a few hours. Recently, we had the great experience of placing a BFP-ICARUS in the VA Hospital in St. Louis, and wow, what an experience it has become!

Filament Innovations is hard at work making an even more precise coordinate system. The X, Y, and Z axes are all on a full ballscrew and linear rail setup to create the best print quality FDM can offer. No more belts, no more linear rods, no more hassle! To top it all off, we ordered blue aluminum pieces made in the USA to give it that red, white, and blue finish.
