COMPAMED 2017 – Technical ceramics for medical technology

CeramTec advanced ceramics at the world’s largest medical industry event

Once again, visitors can obtain detailed information about how advanced technical ceramics are used in manufacturing modern medical devices and products from November 13–16, 2017 in Düsseldorf: The CeramTec ceramic experts will be exhibiting at COMPAMED 2017.

“Take advantage of this opportunity – meet the Ceramic Experts at MEDICA and COMPAMED 2017 in Düsseldorf!”

MEDICA is the largest trade fair for the medical industry worldwide. Experts have faithfully marked their calendars each year in anticipation of this event for over 40 years now. COMPAMED is the leading international marketplace for the medical supply industry and product development. It takes place alongside MEDICA and offers a broad spectrum of technology and service solutions for use in the medical technology sector – from new materials, components, primary products and services to complex custom orders and nanotechnology.

COMPAMED is the ideal information and communications platform for CeramTec. After all – from lithotripters and artificial hip joints to anesthetic equipment – CeramTec advanced ceramics are not only used in all types of medical devices, but also in the human body.
