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: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
