COMPAMED showed technology trends for the medical suppliers’ industry

24.11.2011
The IVAM Product Market „High-tech for Medical Devices“ at the COMPAMED trade show in Dusseldorf has attracted many business professionals again this year. Around 16,000 visitors attended the supplier market of medical technology manufacturing in order to discover high-tech products and services from the field of medical technology.

The exhibitors of the joint pavilion of the IVAM Microtechnology Network, for instance, presented advanced materials and material compounds with extremely high resistance, which can be used as high-quality mirrors and reflectors after diamond processing. Laser manufacturers displayed laser processing systems for welding and cutting medical stents.

Another focus has been on the aspect of quality control. Suppliers of measuring systems introduced new contact-less measuring devices with a vertical resolution reaching into the nanometer range. Altogether, the products and services of the IVAM exhibitors covered almost all areas of the value added chain. The Product Market presented a cross-section of medical device high-tech, including system development, customized OEM modules, and turn-key devices.

On the established forum „High-tech for Medical Devices“, 42 experts from ten nations introduced technology trends of the suppliers’ industry in more than 40 presentations. The experts addressed topics such as micro- and nano-sized surface structures and their specific functionalities, piezo drives, microfluidic devices, life sciences and innovative diagnostic products.

In a Russia session with simultaneous translation, experts from Russia and Germany discussed, among other things, the obstacles of clinical trial of medical devices and the required quality assurance of medical products. The session also presented current trends and activities on the European market.

"Our exhibitors had many high-quality and promising business talks this year. Due to the successful trade show, five exhibitors have decided on the spot to take part again in 2012 ", IVAM CEO Heinz-Peter Hippler comments on the high quality of visitors at the IVAM Product Market.

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,...
