Micro, nano and materials for the US medical market: successful joint pavilion at MD&M West

26.02.2014

The MD&M West exhibition, which took place in Anaheim, CA during the second week of February, is regarded as the world’s largest exhibition for medical design and manufacturing. For the first time IVAM Microtechnology Network organized a joint pavilion to support its member companies and other high-tech enterprises to enter the American market. A total of eleven companies from Europe, Asia and America took the opportunity to present their technologies, services and products and to generate new contacts.

The key issues were manufacturing and processing for materials that are used in medical devices, such as polymers and other plastic materials, metal alloys, glass or silicon as well as 3D structuring for the production of medical components.

Functional coatings with antimicrobial characteristics, smart textiles, e-health solutions and innovative monitoring systems were also topics of the exhibition and the co-located conference.

“The exhibitors of our joint pavilion are really satisfied with the quality of their leads and they would like to exhibit at MD&M West again in 2015“, reports Dr. Thomas R. Dietrich, CEO of IVAM.

“Many companies from the field of micro, nano and materials have been exhibiting at MD&M West for several years. This is an indicator of how important this trade show is. Particularly for German companies the MD&M West offers an excellent opportunity to step into the American market“, adds Dietrich.

The IVAM Microtechnology Network is going to organize a joint pavilion in 2015 again and is thereby reinforcing its leading position as international high-tech network. In response to the great demand for next year's exhibition, IVAM is planning to expand the area. The joint pavilion will then be branded as a special area “MicroNanoTech“ to provide more guidance to the visitors.

Companies who are interested in exhibiting at the MD&M West are welcome to contact Ms. Orkide Karasu (ok@ivam.de or +49 231 9742 7086). An early registration discount is possible.

Im Focus: OLED microdisplays in data glasses for improved human-machine interaction

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing various applications for OLED microdisplays based on organic semiconductors. By integrating the capabilities of an image sensor directly into the microdisplay, eye movements can be recorded by the smart glasses and utilized for guidance and control functions, as one example. The new design will be debuted at Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE) in Berlin at Booth B25, October 18th – 19th.

“Augmented-reality” and “wearables” have become terms we encounter almost daily. Both can make daily life a little simpler and provide valuable assistance for...

Im Focus: Artificial Intelligence Helps in the Discovery of New Materials

With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists from the University of Basel in Switzerland have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 previously unknown thermodynamically stable crystals that can be regarded as new materials. They report on their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

Elpasolite is a glassy, transparent, shiny and soft mineral with a cubic crystal structure. First discovered in El Paso County (Colorado, USA), it can also be...

Im Focus: Complex hardmetal tools out of the 3D printer

For the first time, Fraunhofer IKTS shows additively manufactured hardmetal tools at WorldPM 2016 in Hamburg. Mechanical, chemical as well as a high heat resistance and extreme hardness are required from tools that are used in mechanical and automotive engineering or in plastics and building materials industry. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden managed the production of complex hardmetal tools via 3D printing in a quality that are in no way inferior to conventionally produced high-performance tools.

Fraunhofer IKTS counts decades of proven expertise in the development of hardmetals. To date, reliable cutting, drilling, pressing and stamping tools made of...

Im Focus: Launch of New Industry Working Group for Process Control in Laser Material Processing

At AKL’16, the International Laser Technology Congress held in May this year, interest in the topic of process control was greater than expected. Appropriately, the event was also used to launch the Industry Working Group for Process Control in Laser Material Processing. The group provides a forum for representatives from industry and research to initiate pre-competitive projects and discuss issues such as standards, potential cost savings and feasibility.

In the age of industry 4.0, laser technology is firmly established within manufacturing. A wide variety of laser techniques – from USP ablation and additive...

Im Focus: New laser joining technologies at ‘K 2016’ trade fair

Every three years, the plastics industry gathers at K, the international trade fair for plastics and rubber in Düsseldorf. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will also be attending again and presenting many innovative technologies, such as for joining plastics and metals using ultrashort pulse lasers. From October 19 to 26, you can find the Fraunhofer ILT at the joint Fraunhofer booth SC01 in Hall 7.

K is the world’s largest trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry. As in previous years, the organizers are expecting 3,000 exhibitors and more than...
