Participating companies include AddiFab Inc., which will be demoing its 3D printer, as well as A & W Engineering Works, bio-T, De Oro Devices, Ethicon Inc., and HiPic, Inc. A number of previous Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEAs) winning companies will also be displaying products including 3B Medical, Inc., AstraZeneca, Elvie, Suture Ease, and United Orthopedic Corporation.

Medtech Wall
Within the MD&M Innovation Lab, attendees will also have the opportunity to take a walk down memory lane via the Medtech Wall, displaying "40 years of medtech innovation" in the spirit of MD&M West's 35th anniversary and Medical Device + Diagnostic Industry's (MD+DI) 40th. "The introduction of technology into healthcare welcomed massive advancements for the medical device community," said Hayley Haggarty, General Manager, MD&M West. "As we enter a new decade, we felt it was important to reflect upon the past and commemorate major medtech milestones including engineering-related developments, game-changing medical devices, regulatory milestones, mega-mergers, and more that were instrumental to the industry's ongoing advancement."

MD&M West has been a staple of the medical community for almost 35 years, providing a platform for professionals to network with one another, exchange ideas, draw inspiration, overcome challenges, and source the latest products. "With astonishing innovations coming to medicine and healthcare nearly every single day, we're excited to bring these new features to this year's MD&M West. Attendees have the opportunity to interact and view our industry from both a historical and forward-looking lens," said Matt Logan, Executive Vice President, Advanced Manufacturing Group, Informa Markets.

Featured Product

PI USA - Large Aperture Rotary Air Bearing Stage

PI USA - Large Aperture Rotary Air Bearing Stage

Superior positioning and geometric performance, absolute high-resolution encoders, and a large, ⌀260mm clear aperture makes this air bearing stage a precision instrument for optical alignment, metrology, inspection, calibration, and scanning. Features and advantages include ⌀260mm clear aperture, 77kg load capacity, 0.0015µrad resolution (max.), 500 RPM (max.), flatness/eccentricity of <175/300nm, wobble of < 1 µrad, and direct drive motor. Air-bearings have no rolling or sliding elements and deliver frictionless, non-contact motion, resulting in negligible reversal error, better flatness, and minimal wobble and eccentricity. All these are ideal prerequisites for applications such as inspection and metrology, calibration, and scanning of high-end parts (i.e., infrared and precision optics, turbine blades, shafts and bearings) in industries like aerospace, aircraft, automotive, semiconductors, and photonics.
