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 home to a base for nine of the world’s top ten medical technology companies.

The conference will be the ideal environment for networking and forming partnerships for exhibitors and visitors alike, with suppliers offering a broad range of products and capabilities.

Alleima, formerly Sandvik Materials Technology (SMT), 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 branded Exera® are used for a variety of applications, such as vascular therapy, sensing and neurostimulation. So far, they have been used for devices such as continuous glucose monitors, cochlear implants, pacemaker leads, catheters and guidewires.

Using machinery specifically designed for precision cutting, Alleima medical wire, ribbon, multi-filar and stranded cables can be precisely cut to the customer’s requested length. Depending on the medical application, wire can be coated with polymer insulation and PTFE coatings, in addition to electroplating capabilities.

Alleima recently became a standalone company, having formerly been known as Sandvik Materials Technology (SMT), part of Sandvik Group. The ability to operate as an independent entity has enabled Alleima to focus on executing its strategy of driving growth, materials innovation, operational and commercial excellence, and sustainability.
