IVAM Product Market at MicroTechnology/Hannover Messe With New Exhibitor Record

(Nanowerk News) 73 companies and institutes presented high-tech in miniature format successfully at the 1,000 square meter large Product Market “Micro, Nano & Materials” from April 21 to 25. The joint pavilion, which was organized by IVAM Microtechnology Network at MicroTechnology/HANNOVER MESSE, showed innovative ideas like energy-saving production methods, laser technology and new materials.
“HANNOVER MESSE was a unique opportunity to get information along the complete production chain. Because products get more and more complex, there is a need for networked information and solutions, which were made available by the IVAM network at the Product Market “Micro, Nano & Materials”, states IVAM managing director Dr. Uwe Kleinkes.
In addition to the new special exhibition for laser technology and a Japan Area, energy production and efficiency were important topics for the IVAM exhibitors. “Energy is everywhere – you only have to harvest it“, knows Bernd Folkmer, head of the “Micro Power Solutions“ division at HSG-IMIT. He develops energy-autonomous, mobile applications such as wireless motes for machine condition monitoring. They are powered by the movement of the machines on which they are attached. “Batteries and cables become redundant this way“, concludes Folkmer. Also laser technology for solar cell manufacturing and energy-efficient production machines were presented at the IVAM booth.
Most of the exhibitors drew a positive conclusion. “The fair gave an excellent return”, says Bernd Folkmer from HSGIMIT. The team of BESSY | AZM was “positively surprised“ by the high visitor quality and quantity. Also nanoCompound GmbH, which has just started the production of carbon nanotubes, was happy about “many concrete customer requests“, which showed the large interest of industry in innovative micro and nanotechnology.
