The UK’s leading innovation agency, Digital Catapult, has shortlisted medical 3D printing company, Axial3D, in the coveted Platinum Awards` – which shines a spotlight on the UK’s best tech companies.

The Digital Catapult Platinum Awards recognizes and celebrates startups and scaleups that have achieved the most traction, the most investment and created the best new product or service ideas in the past year.

Axial3D helps to transform pre-operative planning and patient consent while making 3D printing routine for complex cases. The medical 3D printing solution makes it easy for surgeons across the world to access 3D printed models from patient data with a secure online ordering portal and a range of flexible options. Models can be produced and shipped within 48 hours from ordering, while 3D print files can be delivered within 24 hours – a process that previously took up to 8 weeks.

“We’re proud to shine a bright light on the Platinum Award winners; they are global leaders with a competitive edge.”

Jeremy Silver, CEO of Digital Catapult said: “Over 400 startups and scaleups benefit from Digital Catapult programmes every year. The Platinum Awards are for the cream of the crop. Based on market traction, sales growth, and product innovation, our very eminent judges have sifted a starry long list to come down to just eight stand-out companies. We’re proud to shine a bright light on the Platinum Award winners; they are global leaders with a competitive edge that has been sharpened from coming through Digital Catapult’s programmes, and we are excited to celebrate them.”
