Conference "Plastics meets medical technology" combines innovation and practical relevance

The dynamically developing plastics and medical technology markets are facing significant challenges. Factors such as sustainability, digitalization and demographic change are having a significant impact on corporate decisions. How are these two sectors reacting to the current changes and what benefits can companies derive from these developments?

To answer these questions, the "Plastics Meets Medical Technology" conference will take place in Leipzig on January 31 and February 1, 2024. Renowned experts will discuss the topics of materials, design, function, processes, measurement technology and quality. Particular attention will be paid to innovative and tried-and-tested approaches that have been successfully implemented by companies and research institutions. Participants will also have ample opportunity to network at the exhibitor stands and during the evening event.

Diverse technical presentations and exclusive excursions

The conference program for the first day includes specialist presentations, excursions and networking opportunities during the evening event and the accompanying trade exhibition. The technical presentations will focus on materials and applications, for example on more sustainable silicone elastomers, injection devices and film packaging for medical technology, the development of perfusion adapters for connecting vascular structures, AI-based development methods for economical and sustainable products and human-machine interfaces.

The first day will end with an excursion to the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI or, alternatively, with a technology demonstration at the Plastics Center in Leipzig (KUZ). The evening event starts with a lecture by Prof. Dr. med. Andreas Roth from Leipzig University Hospital on the topic of "Fast track - recovery in the fast lane" and invites participants to exchange ideas and further discussions.

The second day is dedicated to process engineering and quality assurance, for example with innovations for economical plastic welding in medical technology, the use of RSP sensors in production, computer tomography in the quality assurance of medical plastics, collagen applications and the introduction to nano- and micromechanical investigations of plastics in medical technology.

Networking character: the focus is on exchange

The "Plastics meets medical technology" event offers a unique opportunity to find out about the latest developments and innovations in the fields of plastics and medical technology and to make valuable contacts. Further information on registration and participation can be found on the website of the Plastics Center in Leipzig.
