at the IVAM Joint Stand
IMT und Micreon are being represented along with around another 50 exhibitors at the joint stand of the IVAM professional association for micro-technology, which will once again be forming a focus for microsystem technology, nanotechnologies, production technology and process control in hall 8a (Hall plan, COMPAMED 2015).
"This is a new record; our floorspace comprises almost 700 square metres," explained Mona Okroy-Hellweg, speaker for the IVAM. Also this year, the professional association is organising the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM (Halle 8a). Along with the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, one symposium deals with the topic that is gaining an increasingly important role, also in the field of medical technology: Printed electronics. In addition, the topic of this year's spring forum "Lasers - Optics - Photonics" will be focussed on during a symposium. "Since many sensor manufacturers are represented at our stand, we additionally work on a session on the topic of "Smart Sensor Solutions," said Okroy-Hellweg.
The COMPAMED SUPPLIERS FORUM is taking place in parallel again in hall 8b (Fair ground, COMPAMED 2015), which is traditionally being organised by the trade magazine DeviceMed.
The focus of numerous presentations by specialist from internationally leading companies entails current development along the entire process chain (Hall plan, COMPAMED 2015) . "On all four days of the trade fair, exhibitors will be providing information on technical innovations and further topics within the scope of the interplay between manufacturers, suppliers and physicians or users. Beginning with innovative materials as a basis of many new technical innovations to the user-centred design of medical technological applications according to IEC 62366 and miniaturisation system, the entire process chain is represented, all the way to the topics of packaging, market access and approval," reported Peter Reinhardt, editor in chief at DeviceMed.
This year, presentations on delivery performance in the fields of medical technology, including presenting tools and parameters for improved performance are new.
The "Innovation Guide", initiated by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research, is also a topic. It accompanies innovation processes step by step along the individual stages of innovation, research - development - certification - reimbursement - market. The programme will be rounded off by practical instructions on how to protect innovations as well as on IT security.
