Recent Approaches for the Manufacturing of Polymeric Cranial Prostheses by Incremental Sheet Forming

This paper presents recent research experiences developed with the aim of manufacturing cranial prostheses inpolymeric sheet using Incremental Sheet Forming (ISF) technologies. With this purpose, different approaches havebeen carried out in Single-Point Incremental Forming (SPIF) and Two-Point Incremental Forming (TPIF) in order toproduce customized cranial implants using different polymeric materials. In this context, this research work providesa methodology to design and manufacture polymer customized cranial prostheses using the ISF technologies startingfrom a patient’s computerized tomography (CT). The results demonstrate the potential of manufacturing polymericcranial prostheses by ISF in terms of the high formability achievable and show the appropriate geometrical accuracyat affordable manufacturing costs provided by these processes
