Title
(EN) A PROCESS FOR REALISING BIOLOGICALLY- COMPATIBLE THREE- DIMENSIONAL ELEMENTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ PERMETTANT LA RÉALISATION D'ÉLÉMENTS TRIDIMENSIONNELS BIOLOGIQUEMENT COMPATIBLES
Abstract
(EN) The process for realising biologically-compatible three- dimensional elements comprises sintering in forming means (6) and at a sintering temperature (T1), by passing an electrical current and applying a pressure, a volume (11) of forming material, obtaining formed concave and/or convex elements (1). Before said sintering operation, a granular material (12) is added to said volume (11) of forming material, which granular material (12) is removable from said formed concave and/or convex elements (1), having a melting temperature (T2) which is higher than said sintering temperature (T1); in this way pores (5) are obtained.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé permettant la réalisation d'éléments tridimensionnels biologiquement compatibles comprenant le frittage dans des moyens de formage (6) et à une température de frittage (T1), par la circulation d'un courant électrique et l'application d'une pression, d'un volume (11) de matériau de formage, permettant d'obtenir des éléments concaves et/ou convexes formés (1). Préalablement à ladite opération de frittage, un matériau granulé (12) est ajouté au dit volume (11) de matériau de formage, ledit matériau granulé (12) étant apte à être éliminé desdits éléments concaves et/ou convexes formés (1), ayant une température de fusion (T2) supérieure à ladite température de frittage (T1), permettant ainsi l'obtention de pores (5).
