COMPAMED is holding on to its position as international leading market place for medical devices

02.12.2013
The COMPAMED, co-located to the world’s biggest medical fair MEDICA in Dusseldorf, Germany, confirmed again its leading position as international market place for medical manufacturing.

Almost 17.000 international guests, most of them from abroad, came to the halls 8a and 8b to find out about parts and components for the suppliers market. The Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices“ organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network in hall 8a was as well international as never before:

More than 10 exhibitors from ten nations showcased precision technologies, micro components, optical products and R&D and manufacturing services for medical devices on an area of 600m².

The experts’ forum attracted many visitors
The COMPAMED HIGH-TECH Forum, which was also hosted by IVAM in hall 8a, presented current technology trends of the suppliers’ industry and deepened questions about the showcased products. The big interest in the topics of the forum was reflected by a high number of visitors: approximately 1000 people joined the presentations about the medical market. Especially the session about “Printed Intelligence“ attracted an extraordinary amount of interest from the audience.
Personalized medicine and intelligent coatings
The exhibitors of the joint pavilion showed, for example functional coatings that are able to equip medical components with antimicrobial or biocompatible properties. Furthermore numerous sensor solutions were presented. With these, diagnostic methods can be used for personalized medicine and thereby, this technique can become more and more affordable. Apart from that, microsystems and -products were showcased, which were originally designed for other industries and which have enormous potentials for medical applications.
High level of satisfaction
The exhibiting companies and institutes were extremely satisfied, when departing from Dusseldorf after three days of trade show. “Almost all respondents think that the number of visitors in general and the quality of their leads is good or very good”, reports IVAM trade fair manager Orkide Karasu. “Again this year this high degree of satisfaction is reflected by the bookings for the year 2014.” Even before the COMPAMED 2013 started, the first companies wanted to reserve a booth for the year 2014 at the IVAM office. About one third of the exhibiting companies decided – due to their very good leads - already during the exhibition to participate again with a booth at the IVAM joint pavilion.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
