MD&M West in Anaheim is considered to be the world's largest trade fair for design and manufacturing in medical technology. Most of the 20,000 visitors are developers and decision makers from the manufacturing industry of medical technology. The joint booth of the IVAM Microtechnology Network in hall c was again branded as “Micro Nanotech“ area and bundled the high-tech component manufacturers for the supply market.
All 13 international exhibitors at the joint booth were highly satisfied with the course of the show and with the quality of the contacts they made.
Many exhibitors booked their booth for the upcoming year directly on-site so that two thirds of the booths for 2018 are already occupied. The IVAM Microtechnology Network will therefore enlarge the "Micro Nanotech" area for 2018 and offer additional space.
The exhibits at the IVAM joint booth included, for example, electronic and optical components for medical devices, micro pumps and microfluidic parts as well as measuring instruments for surface control of e.g. implants.
Furthermore, manufacturing processes for metal components in micrometer scale for medical applications, coating methods as well as surface modification have been presented.
The Finnish company Ginolis Oy, supplier of assembly automation and liquid handling solutions for medical technology and the diagnostics industry, was among the five nominated companies for the innovation prize of the fair.
In addition to the business contacts on their booths, the exhibitors were able to make and maintain contacts with American companies before and after the show and during a joint get-together of all IVAM exhibitors in a typical American restaurant.

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.
The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
