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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
