The M3d+it (Medical 3d-printing and Innovative Technologies) is a platform that promotes 3d-printing in medicine and brings together health professionals, doctors, researchers, and device manufacturers.

We are pleased to announce the “Additive Manufacturing in Medicine 2nd Symposium ” and the “Design of Medical Devices Europe 2019“, which will be organized under the umbrella of the first M3d+it Conference.

This combined event will take place on Dec. 6th-7th 2019, at the Medical University of Vienna, Vienna General Hospital, in the Hörsaal 5, Level 7. This year we will address the emerging field of 3d-printing in medicine and explore its role in medical device design.

An important part of this event will be a small  industrial exhibition, where companies will showcase their latest developments and products.

PROFACTOR is exhibiting at the Inprint  2019 – INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF PRINT TECHNOLOGY FOR INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURING –  robot-based inkjet printing and digital pad printing  together with ITW Morlock vertreten (A6, Booth 248).

Daniel Fechtig will give you  insights into our solutions in two talks during the conference.
 

Robot-based inkjet printing as well as the digital PAD printing technology enables digital, maskless decoration and functionalization of 3D-shaped products and a flexible mass manufacturing. The technological focus of robot-based inkjet printing is on the further development of a specifically developed software for communication between the industrial print head and the moving robot arm as well as material tests like fixing drops with a pinning unit on curved surfaces. Digital PAD printing enables to  print on small and complex shaped, highly curved objects in high quality. The technology combines digital inkjet printing and analog PAD printing in a single industrial process.

 

 
Multi-material/multi-layer inkjet printing offers the possibility to integrate additional functionality in the form of digitally printed electronics on flat, curved surfaces or directly into products/components. Applications include antennas, sensors, electrical cables and contacts on curved glass, optics, shoes, textiles, cars, aircraft, consumer products, baby products, medical devices, packaging and many more.

PROFACTOR focuses on the development of digital manufacturing processes (inkjet printing, inkjet-based 3D printing) for the fabrication of free-form optics and printed electronics within 3D parts or on curved surfaces and the fabrication of high-resolution electrical structures together with customers/partners from industry and research. The presentation provides an overview of market opportunities, processes, solutions, concrete applications and examples, current technical and commercial challenges and how we solve them together with partners.
