In the current study, titanium spinal implants with a gradient in porosity were produced by combining the 2-Component-Metal Injection Moulding technique with the space holder method. Net-shape production was accomplished using feedstocks with and without space holder particles, in a fully automated injection process. The gradient in porosity is attractive for biomedical implants, as it combines low porous parts with high mechanical strength with highly porous parts, which promote a stable interlock between bone tissue and implant.
