Welcome MedilinkWM & My M-Link as Supporting Partners

Cheshire, UK, 10th July 2009: Rapid News Publications plc, organiser of TCT Live and MM Live 2009, is delighted to announce that Medilink West Midlands and its fully owned subsidiary My M-Link have become supporting partners of the show.

Held at the prestigious Ricoh Arena, Coventry, 20-21st October 2009, TCT Live is the leading UK event focussed on cutting-edge product development and manufacturing technologies with a key focus on innovation. The event is targeted at all stages of product development from concept and design to specification and manufacturing. MM Live, co-located with TCT, is a global showcase for everything to do with the mass manufacture of small to micro precision parts, whether a company can make them to order or supply the machinery to mill, turn or mould.

MedilinkWM has been a regional leader in developing business networks for medical and healthcare companies, resulting in commercial ventures and business growth. It has worked with members to increase their viability in the market and grow their medical business through technology and knowledge transfer from Universities and the NHS — and achieves this by bridging the gap between those who innovate and those who manufacture. My M-Link proactively leads member companies to commercial opportunities in the medical market, providing market intelligence and supporting businesses through introductions, networking opportunities and a commercial tender service.

TCT Live and MM Live feature the very latest manufacturing techniques. Suppliers from the sectors of inspection, scanning and digitising, CAD/CAM/CAE software and materials, laser cutting, welding, micro machining, injection moulding, handling and assembly, will be demonstrating how these technologies can be utilised in the medical industry. The shows are ideal for medical devices manufacturers looking to source the latest materials and techniques.

A key focus of this year’s shows is Education for the Industry. The exhibition features several seminars and two conferences, the Additive Manufacturing Conference and the Micro Manufacturing Technology Conference, which feature a range of interesting and informative case studies of how these cutting-edge techniques have been used in medical applications.

Duncan Wood, Group Director at Rapid News commented, “We are delighted to have the support of the leading regional and national medical expert organisation. The technologies that TCT & MM Live cover are integral to the medical sector and we look forward to welcoming many more medical visitors through this association.”

Chris Dyke, Connectivity Director from MedilinkWM will present a paper in the Advanced Prototyping Seminar entitled Emerging Opportunities for RP&M in the Medical Arena. A new one-day seminar has also been introduced for 2009 called Digital Manufacturing & Materials for Dentistry in collaboration with Attenborough Dental and others.

“We are happy to be a part of these highly-regarded technology shows as they attract some of the most cutting-edge developments soon to be on the market.  We hope to open attendees’ eyes to the possibility of applying their innovative technologies to medical and healthcare products and processes, and make those vital first introductions.” Concluded Michelle Dalton, MedilinkWM.
