Medical Technology UK 2023 Exhibition & Learning Programme is gearing up to open its doors to medical device engineers and exhibitors. This year’s event will include specialist presentations from exhibitors, a two-day learning programme, a women in MedTech forum, and unrivalled opportunities for networking with industry leaders.
Day one of the learning programme covers “The Future of Medical Technology Innovation”, which includes presentations regarding automation, robotics, and 3D printing. Day two will introduce the Young MedTech Entrepreneurs, followed by the Women in MedTech Forum, which will include presentations from innovators and engineers in the medical technology industry, chaired by CEO and Founder of The Care Machine, Dr Helen Meese.
This year’s exhibitors
Medical Technology UK will host more than 150 tier one, two, and three suppliers, covering a wide range of specialist areas, from quality management systems to cleanroom solutions to medical device component manufacturing.
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 branded Exera® are used for a variety of applications. So far, they have been used for devices such as cochlear implants, pacemaker leads, fractional flow reserves (FFRs), implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), catheters, and guidewires.
Using machinery specifically designed for precision cutting, Exera® 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.
In 2021, Alleima acquired Polyfil and Galvarex to expand its polymer coating and electroplating capabilities. In the end of last year, the company acquired Endosmart, experts in Nitinol.
To find out more about Alleima’s innovative products, or to speak with a representative about your medical device needs and challenges, you can find them at booth 69.
