Medtec Europe 2018 – Advanced Ceramics for Medical Engineering Applications

CeramTec Presents Ceramic Components for Medical Engineering Applications

From April 17 to 19, Medtec Europe is once again opening its doors in Stuttgart as the industry hub for medical engineering professionals. As one of over 600 international exhibitors, the ceramic experts are presenting trends and innovative advanced ceramic components for medical devices and products.

“We look forward to seeing you –
meet the ceramic experts at Medtec Europe 2018 in Stuttgart!”

Medtec Europe brings close to 7,000 decision makers from the medical engineering sector together in a market place of trends and innovations. Medical engineering experts from over 70 countries will be in attendance, including from medical equipment manufacturers, from research and development, or from the field of medical engineering applications and products. What they all have in common is the pursuit of the best solutions for patients and processes, striving towards cost effectiveness and comfort. For more than 15 years, Medtec Europe has held an important spot in the industry's calendar as a hub of information and communication, offering visitors a wide spectrum of technological and service solutions for implementation in the medical engineering sector – ranging from new materials, components, intermediate products, and services to complex made-to-order manufacturing and nanotechnology.

CeramTec is a provider of ceramic components that come into their own in applications where other materials are unviable. Because of this, advanced ceramics can be used in a wide range of applications, from lithotripters to artificial hip joints to bubble sensors for fluids – CeramTec advanced ceramics are not only used in the most varied medical devices, they are also used in the human body itself.

Advanced ceramics for manufacturing medical devices
and products

CeramTec has a large range of advanced ceramic materials with a wide variety of properties to offer the right solutions for the most varied ceramic applications in the medical industry and in medical product development.

In medical engineering applications, the key is to use the specific properties of technical ceramics in areas where these materials can truly shine and where conventional materials such as metals or plastics simply do not meet the requirements.

Depending on the ceramic material in question, advanced ceramics combine a range of properties and are

  • Biocompatible
  • Chemically resistant
  • Electrically insulating
  • Resistant to high temperatures
  • Scratch-resistant
  • Sterilizable
  • Transparent
  • Wear-resistant
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Exceptionally strong

The ceramic experts will present this broad spectrum of innovative materials at Stand 9D18 and offer in-depth information on application scenarios that showcase the unique mechanical, electrical, thermal, and biochemical properties of technical ceramics in the field of medical technology.
