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: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...

Im Focus: 3-D satellite, GPS earthquake maps isolate impacts in real time

Method produced by UI researcher could improve reaction time to deadly, expensive quakes

When an earthquake hits, the faster first responders can get to an impacted area, the more likely infrastructure--and lives--can be saved.

Im Focus: Atlantic Ocean overturning found to slow down already today

The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe. 

Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...

Im Focus: Robot inspects concrete garage floors and bridge roadways for damage

Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.

From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
