Abstract

Superplastic Forming (SPF) is an advanced net shape forming process that offers significant cost and weight saving potentials over conventional forming operations. SPF offers greater design flexibility due to its ability to shape hard materials, such as titanium alloys, and form complex geometries and profiles. Although superplastic forming has been succesfully utilized in many fields, mainly in the aerospace industry, its use in the medical field for the production of devices and implants is still very limited. The main objective of this paper is to introduce superplastic forming to the medical community and highlight the benefits of SPF over conventional forming operations. In addition, we carry out a Finite Element simulation of superplastic forming of a dental implant superstructure made of Ti6Al4V alloy. It is hoped that this paper will initiate collaborative work to effectively utilize SPF in fabriacting medical devices and implants.
