Medical is one of the fastest growing application areas of 3D printing – or Additive Manufacturing. After a very successfull first 3D fab+print Seminar at MEDICA / COMPAMED 2017, this year Additive Manufacturing will again be addressed at the yearly international trade fair for the medical professionals in Düsseldorf / Germany.
On Monday, 12 November 2018, a full-dayConference on Additive Manufacturing for medical applications will be organized at MEDICA / COMPAMED, where global professionals can gain (more) insight in the most interesting developments. Since the 3D printing market is a rapidly evolving one – especially in the medical field, with application options increasing and being tweaked each day – staying regularly updated on the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing is vital.
Program highlights of the 3D fab+print Additive Manufacturing Conference
10:45 h – 11:10 h 3D-Printing in Medicine Katharina Augsten, Healthcare Sales Manager EMEA, Stratasys GmbH, Rheinmünster/ Germany Abstract: How 3D printing can improve patient care, reduce operational costs and increase efficiency within the clinical environment.
Abstract: When and why 3D printing bone is a good idea, get into more detail regarding the composition of printed bone material, and take the audience on a journey toward contemplating about what will be next?
Implants are needed in different types of situations, for instance after an accident or because of a tumor. If the injury is very complicated, patient-specific implants are able to help. These types of implants are made with the help of a 3D printer at the Chair of Fluid Technology and Microfluidics at the University of Rostock.
COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM by IVAM
(Hall 8a, Stand 8aG40)
COMPAMED offers high-tech solutions for the domain of medical devices. It has become an international leading trade fair for the supplier market of medical manufacturing. The medical devices industry is one of the most dynamically growing markets. This can be seen in the constantly growing numbers of visitors at the COMPAMED/ MEDICA.
IVAM, the professional association for micro-technology, points the way to the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM by IVAM and presents technologies and solutions for the future.
The COMPAMED SUPPLIERS FORUM by DeviceMed in 2018 will focus on areas such as additive manufacturing, cyber security, regulatory affairs and medical innovations.
Speakers from leading international companies and organizations will present current developments along the entire process chain. Mechanical and electronic components as well as innovative materials, manufacturing processes and equipment, all types of contract manufacturing, design and usability as well as quality assurance will be the subject of the expert lectures. Lectures on new markets round off the information on offer.
In medical technology, special attention must be paid to the choice of materials especially regarding the manufacture of surgical instruments or implants. That is the reason why material technology is a very fast developing discipline. COMPAMED 2017 shows what are the trends in material industry.
