A close collaboration with surgeons, Universities and implant manufacturers all around the world ensure SYNBONE to be the leader regarding developing the highest quality models replicated with the accuracy and attention to detail.

SYNBONE uses polyurethane as base bone material. This enables SYNBONE to calibrate formulations for low-medium-hard cortical shell bones. SYNBONE can vary formulations to replicate cancellous material (for example: long bones in the proximal and distal ends). The production methods include 3D printed molds, soft molds and traditional semi-automated and fully automated equipment using Lean Process Management principles.

SYNBONE combines skilled methods with specialized production partners at both SYNBONE locations in Switzerland and Malaysia. These actions keep the quality high and production costs low, resulting in highly competitive product prices for SYNBONE customers.
