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
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.
IVAM is an international association of companies and institutes in the
fields of microtechnology, nanotechnology and advanced materials. At
present about 270 companies, institutes and partners from all over the
world are IVAM members. As the communicative bridge between
suppliers and users, IVAM brings innovations to market and creates
competitive advantages via technology marketing. Furthermore, IVAM
offers lobbying services for small and medium-sized enterprises,
qualification, various publications and world-wide networking on trade
fairs and events.
