SLM SOLUTIONS PRESENTS SELECTIVE LASER MELTING TECHNOLOGY TO THE SWISS MEDTECH INDUSTRY

The SLM So­lu­tions Group AG is pre­sent­ing Se­lec­tive Laser Melt­ing (SLM) tech­nol­ogy, a method of ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing, at the Swiss Medtech Expo 2017 on Sep­tem­ber 19-20. As one of the lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of gen­er­a­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing ma­chines, SLM So­lu­tions will be rep­re­sented in Lucerne in Hall 2 at Booth E2136.

Fol­low­ing its suc­cess­ful pre­miere in 2015, Swiss Medtech Expo is going into its sec­ond round: The Swiss MedTech in­dus­try will meet at the Lucerne trade fair on Sep­tem­ber 19 and 20, 2017. Ad­vanced Man­u­fac­tur­ing is in the focus of the trade fair. A sep­a­rate sym­po­sium is being de­voted to the cross-in­dus­try process, in which the pos­si­bil­i­ties of 3D processes will be il­lus­trated on a solid sci­en­tific basis and ori­ented to ac­tual prac­tice.

Messe Luzern AG

SLM So­lu­tions Group AG will be ex­hibit­ing with its own booth E2136 in Hall 2 for the first time. The com­pany from north­ern Ger­many will show new so­lu­tions for gen­er­a­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy to­gether with its Swiss part­ner Pro­to­shape, rep­re­sented by Dr. Felix Rein­ert. With a good mix­ture of ex­hi­bi­tion, knowl­edge trans­fer and net­work­ing, SLM So­lu­tions wants to sen­si­tize the Swiss MedTech in­dus­try fur­ther for the topic of ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing. In ad­di­tion to the ex­hi­bi­tion booth, Philip Oris, Med­ical Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Di­rec­tor, will give a talk at the In­no­va­tion Sym­po­sium on the focal topic of ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing at 11:05 a.m. on Tues­day, Sep­tem­ber 19, 2017, ti­tled "The pro­duc­tiv­ity of se­lec­tive laser melt­ing to pro­duce sur­gi­cal im­plants."

The trade fair par­tic­i­pa­tion of SLM So­lu­tions will focus on pre­sent­ing se­lec­tive laser melt­ing ma­chines, as­so­ci­ated ma­te­ri­als, tech­nolo­gies and processes. "At Swiss Medtech Expo, we want to show under re­al­is­tic con­di­tions how ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing con­tributes to in­no­va­tions in the MedTech in­dus­try," Ste­fan Ritt ex­plained, Vice Pres­i­dent and Head of Global Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions at SLM So­lu­tions Group AG. "We have al­ready been able to col­lab­o­rate in de­vel­op­ing in­no­v­a­tive prod­ucts with our tech­nol­ogy in other in­dus­tries and are con­vinced that we can also pro­vide fur­ther stim­uli in the Swiss MedTech in­dus­try."
