COMPAMED showed technology trends for the medical suppliers’ industry

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: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
