COMPAMED presented high-tech solutions for product development and production of medical device

22.11.2012
The COMPAMED fair, which took place affiliated with the medical fair MEDICA in Dusseldorf, Germany in mid-November, again proved its position as leading market place for suppliers of medical parts and components.

More than 16.000 people from all over the world visited the halls 8a and 8b to find out about new products and latest trends of the suppliers market.

The joint pavilion of the IVAM Microtechnology Network in hall 8a was more extensive than ever before: 40 exhibitors from seven nations presented recent trends in development and manufacturing of medical devices and components at the Product Market "High-tech for Medical Devices".

The exhibitors of the joint pavilion showed, for example, microfluidic solutions and components for lap-on-a-chip applications, metrology for applications like tribological analysis or healthcare imaging as well as micro sensors for improved patient care. Furthermore, highly precise microstructures and -components, made of different materials like glass, plastics or metal were showcased.
These components and structures – it is possible for instance to manufacture a metal tube with an outer diameter of 0.1mm - enable a more cost-effective production of medical devices and consumer goods.

“The exhibitors of our pavilion are more than satisfied with the number of visitors and with the quality of their leads at this trade fair“, reports IVAM trade fair manager Orkide Karasu. “This high degree of satisfaction is reflected by numerous bookings for the upcoming year.

At the fair already ten companies, more than ever before, decided to exhibit again with IVAM in 2013. We have already filled a third of the whole Product Market. We expect that the joint pavilion will be sold out in January – just like it was the year before.”

At the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH forum, which was organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network too, international experts from science and industry presented current trends of the suppliers’ industry and gave an outlook on future developments. Main topics were micro precision, quality assurance, electronic manufacturing services as well as laser and photonic applications.

The audience was particularly interested in the session "Miniaturized Electronics for Medical Products", which took place as a workshop and was presented and co-organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM from Berlin.

Im Focus: Worldwide Success of Tyrolean Wastewater Treatment Technology

A biological and energy-efficient process, developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck, converts nitrogen compounds in wastewater treatment facilities into harmless atmospheric nitrogen gas. This innovative technology is now being refined and marketed jointly with the United States’ DC Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water). The largest DEMON®-system in a wastewater treatment plant is currently being built in Washington, DC.

The DEMON®-system was developed and patented by the University of Innsbruck 11 years ago. Today this successful technology has been implemented in about 70...

Im Focus: Computational high-throughput screening finds hard magnets containing less rare earth elements

Permanent magnets are very important for technologies of the future like electromobility and renewable energy, and rare earth elements (REE) are necessary for their manufacture. The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg, Germany, has now succeeded in identifying promising approaches and materials for new permanent magnets through use of an in-house simulation process based on high-throughput screening (HTS). The team was able to improve magnetic properties this way and at the same time replaced REE with elements that are less expensive and readily available. The results were published in the online technical journal “Scientific Reports”.

The starting point for IWM researchers Wolfgang Körner, Georg Krugel, and Christian Elsässer was a neodymium-iron-nitrogen compound based on a type of...

Im Focus: Atomic precision: technologies for the next-but-one generation of microchips

In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.

In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...
