Project Title: An impact of a new Plasma Spray System on the Zimmer-Biomet Plant. 

Project Description

Zimmer-Biomet Bridgend is considered to be the centre of excellence (CoE) within the ZB group for the manufacture the G7 shells family. (G7 shell is a Hip implant that is fixated to the acetabulum of the hip joint.) Both these products are plasma porous coated onsite (PPC). (PPC is a high temperature, rough finish sprayed coating used to encourage bone growth through the implant.) To ensure ZB Bridgend stays the CoE, an increase of capacity of porous coated implants is required.
