Forthcoming webinars are detailed below. All Lucideon webinars are free to attend and commence at 3pm, UK time, unless otherwise stated.
Links to recordings of some of the webinars we have presented in recent years are also available below.
In the second part of our “What the Standards Don’t Tell You” series, we dig a little deeper into ISO 14243, the wear testing standard for total knee replacements. Not every knee replacement is made equal, nor is every knee system suitable for every patient. How do you know that your design is being tested for its intended application?
A wide range of techniques are employed to form ceramic components, with each technique having specific advantages and disadvantages. In this webinar, Richard White and Mike Salt discuss these techniques, and how and why they are chosen, with regards to advanced ceramics.
In this webinar, Andrew Perry, Group Ceramic Processes Leader at Lucideon, discusses the key aspects of air entrapment in casting slips and, using case studies, discusses the methods used to eliminate contamination at source, thereby minimising pinhole faults.
In this webinar, presented by Dr Phil Jackson and Delihta Fernando, we explore the important drivers facing the dental industry and discuss the potential roles that novel materials could play as 'enablers'.
While this general topic has been covered in various webinars in the past, here we isolate several key aspects of the problem. The unique porous coated surfaces of new additively manufactured (AM) medical implants have proven to be quite complex and are creating challenges with respect to effective cleaning.
This webinar, presented by Julius Bonini, Aerospace Business Manager, covers all of the common post-processing treatments applied to additively manufactured (AM) metal components. Topics related to the removal from build plates and stress relieving of as-fabricated parts to more complex processes such as machining, cleaning and surface finishing, are covered.
In this webinar, Julius Bonini, Aerospace Business Manager, explores a number of analysis techniques that can be used to provide insightful competitive advantage through design and performance evaluation.
In this webinar, Dr Adam Healey, materials scientist, describes several different milling techniques, the advantages and disadvantages associated with them and discusses a number of case studies where altering of the milling process has been instrumental.
In this webinar, Dr Gilda Gasparini, Chemical Engineer, and Dr Ying Zhu, Materials Scientist, look into a number of advanced drying techniques, their pros and cons and also discuss how these drying techniques help improving real-life manufacturing processes.
Presented by Dr Gilda Gasparini, Chemical Engineer, and Dr Phil Jackson, Technical Manager, both of Lucideon's Healthcare division, the webinar focusses on the benefits that design of experiments affords in terms of product optimization, time and cost savings, and yield improvement.
Hosted by Dr Richard Padbury, polymer technology consultant at Lucideon, the webinar looks at the beneficial properties of polymers in a range of applications and how these can be best utilized.
Hosted by Dr Chris Pickles, consultant to Lucideon, the webinar looks at the application of surface science techniques in industry to provide understanding of the distribution of ingredients in materials, with a specific focus on healthcare applications.
In this webinar, hosted by Gary Kagel, we explore various microchemical techniques, their uses and limitations, and how to most effectively solve key coatings challenges.
Medical devices and pharmaceutical products can present a risk to patients by way of exposure to substances present in manufacturing or packaging materials. This webinar, presented by Craig Donald and Malcolm Rose, discusses how to understand and evaluate those risks by following the procedures set out in ISO 10993.
This webinar, presented by Sara Randall, Senior Materials Engineer, describes the general processes applied to a typical failure analysis of a metal component.
This webinar, presented by Julius Bonini, Principal Consultant, Metallurgy, provides a blueprint for the typical procedures which should be applied when a component fails in fatigue.
This webinar, presented by Dr Craig Donald, discusses reusable medical devices (such as surgical tools, etc.) which need to be cleaned and/or sterilized before each use. Manufacturers are required to validate their cleaning/sterilization instructions accordingly. The webinar addresses a range of factors to consider when developing such protocols.
Hosted by Joan Morra, Metallurgical Engineer, and Dr Phil Jackson, Technical Manager, Healthcare, this webinar covers the importance of powder quality and optimization for successful Additive Manufacturing processes.
This webinar, presented by Julius Bonini, Principal Consultant, Metallurgy, highlights and discusses several issues associated with additive manufacturing (AM) technology that the medical implant and device community are currently facing.
This webinar, presented by George Jones, discusses the new USP <232> Heavy Metals limit test, which will be fully in place by 1 January 2018, and the effects it will have for businesses.
This webinar, presented by Ramiro Alan Ramirez and Kevin Night, discusses: common standards - what they cover and what they don’t and areas that require unique test methods including: coatings of devices; ageing of devices; adverse wear testing; dynamic testing of acetabular components and adapting simulators to emulate joints without available standards.
This webinar covers metal additive manufacturing, various methods & equipment, E Beam vs. laser melting methods, powder bed vs deposition methods & available metal systems
Hosted by Dr Geoff Edgell, Director and Principal Construction Consultant, this webinar looks at alternative uses for bricks in structural work.
Presented by Dr Chris Pickles, this webinar focusses on how chemical mapping and topographical profiling can be used to support product claims.
Presented by Dr Chris Pickles and Stuart Watson, the webinar covers current regulatory guidance, residues and sources of contamination, and how to identify contaminants and their source via surface, gravimetric and residue analysis.
Presented by Dr Chris Pickles, this webinar covers the use of surface chemical analysis for the validation of device cleaning processes and discusses how surface and chemical analysis can be used to validate the cleaning processes of medical devices.
