60 experts from the micro and nanotechnology scene give insights into practice

(Nanowerk News) Laser technology for photovoltaics, quality analysis of drinking water with capillary electrophoresis, or challenges in the area of carbon nanotubes – exclusive insights in latest developments of micro and nanotechnology can be experienced at MicroTechnology/HANNOVER MESSE from April 21 to 25 at the forum “Innovations for Industry“ in the heart of hall 6 (booth D16).
Experts like Bayer MaterialScience, LIMO Lissotschenko Mikrooptik, ROFIN/Baasel Lasertech and several Fraunhofer Institutes address the ongoing trend topic of miniaturized industry solutions here. They show how micro and nanotechnology as well as advanced materials create innovative and improve already established products. The focus of the forum lies on the important areas of micro production, smart systems integration, new materials and sensor technology.
On April 22, the “Japan Day”, companies such as Matsushita, Mitsubishi, Omron, Olympus and the Micromachine Center will talk about latest trends in industrial microsystems technology and nanotechnology from Far East. On April 23, the forum will be dedicated exclusively to the topic laser technology with a “Laser Day”, which is part of IVAM’s new special exhibition “Laser for micromachining and microproduction”. The VDI/VDE-IT organizes the demonstration forum “Clean-Tech Energy“ on April 25, where current developments in microsystems technology for renewable energy will be shown.
Organizer of the forum is IVAM Microtechnology Network in cooperation with Deutsche Messe, supported by associations like VDI/VDE-IT, VDMA, NCG, AMA and ZVEI. Next to the forum “Innovations for Industry”, 74 companies and institutes will present themselves at the IVAM Product Market “Micro, Nano & Materials“ (booth F16). Further information and the program of the forum can be found under www.ivam.de.
