Medical Technology Ireland Expo and Conference, which will take place at Galway Racecourse on 20–21 September, is set to bring together more than 300 global suppliers, exhibiting their products and services to the medtech industry.
In addition to the exhibitor booths, Medical Technology Ireland will showcase a conference with a diverse schedule, hosted by industry leaders, including the Women in MedTech Forum.
Speakers from manufacturers, academic institutions, start-ups, financial institutions and suppliers will discuss current and future technological trends that can improve the quality of life for patients around the world.
This year’s discussions will include talks on the challenges and opportunities facing Ireland’s medtech sector in 2023, the impact of regulation on medical technology, the challenges of emerging digital and connected health technology, and sustainability in the medical market.
Global medical device technology
Medical Technology Ireland has attracted an extensive list of local and international exhibitors. As the second-largest employer of medtech professionals per capita and the largest exporter of medical products in Europe, Ireland is a base for nine of the world’s top ten medtech companies.
The conference will provide an ideal environment for networking and forming partnerships for exhibitors and visitors alike, with suppliers offering a broad range of products and capabilities.
Alleima is one exhibitor that prides itself on being a one-stop shop for customised medical wire components. Working with a diverse portfolio of alloys, and specialising in choosing the best materials and configurations, Alleima’s wire-based components are used in a variety of applications, including vascular therapy, sensing and neurostimulation. So far, they have been used in devices such as cochlear implants, pacemaker leads, catheters and guidewires.
Using machinery specifically designed for precision cutting, Alleima’s medical wire, ribbons, multi-filar and stranded cables can be precisely cut to the customer’s requested length. Depending on the medical application, the wire can be coated with polymer insulation or PTFE coatings, in addition to having electroplating capabilities.
Since attending last year’s event, Alleima has acquired Endosmart, a Germany-based manufacturer of medical devices and components made of nitinol, an alloy renowned for unique properties including shape memory, biocompatibility and superelasticity. Its portfolio adds to Alleima’s extensive metals, alloys and metallurgy expertise, and the combined footprint of the two companies will drive further product development and global expansion.
To find out more about Alleima’s innovative products, or to speak with a representative about your medical device needs and challenges, you can visit them this month at Booth R1 at Medical Technology Ireland Expo and Conference.
