Medical Manufacturing Asia 2018 and Medical Fair Asia 2018

The medical technology market in Asia is expected to grow 8% year on year, and visitors to Medical Fair Asia 2018 and Medical Manufacturing Asia 2018, held at Marina Bay Sands Expo from 29 – 31 August, were treated to an array of innovations and technology from 1,220 exhibitors hailing from 62 countries.

Cutting-edge healthcare technologies and manufacturing processes used in medical technology were featured at both exhibitions which were held at the same time. The exhibitions served as platforms for busy healthcare professionals to keep abreast of the latest technology and solutions available right now in the market.

Creatz3D was among the list of exhibitors at both exhibitions that were held at different levels, where they demonstrated how 3D printing medical models and solutions can help to not only establish process development and end-to-end product design but also facilitate development alongside manufacturing activities.

The DLyte 100I machine from GPA Innova was also exhibited at Creatz3D’s booth on Basement 2. Besides being the first dry electropolishing system in the world for polishing metals like steel, stainless steel, aluminum and titanium components, the DryLyte technology was also debuting for the first time in Singapore.

Visitors were notably piqued to discover the wide range of applications available for polishing, and how it could possibly revolutionize the finishing industry with an innovative process not seen previously.

The Asia-Pacific region is projected to become the world’s second largest market for medical technology by 2020, given Asia’s rapidly aging population and with increasing demands from healthcare professionals for new models of care.
