Compamed 2017: The Berliner Glas Group presents new solutions for medical device manufacturers

The Berliner Glas Group contributes to important developments in medical technology by developing and producing optical, electronic and mechanical high-precision components, assemblies and systems. At this year's Compamed, the trade fair for suppliers and manufacturers of medical technologies, the Berliner Glas Group will present both new as well as tried-and-true solutions for medical device manufacturers:


RGB LED cold light source for endoillumination
With its innovative optical design, the new RGB LED cold light source from Berliner Glas allows for very high light injection even with the smallest light guides, and is thus also used in endoillumination.


Interested visitors can view the new RGB LED cold light source at the Berliner Glas Group booth (Hall 8a, Stand G19.6) and/or come for the specialized lecture from Berliner Glas titled “High-Brightness for Ultra-Thin Fibers – a New RGB LED Light Source for Endoillumination”. This specialized lecture will be presented on Tuesday, November 14, at 11:00 a.m. as part of the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM by IVAM in Hall 8a, Stand G40.


Technical glass for touch applications and glass touch display modules
The Business Unit “Technical Glass” of the Berliner Glas Group manufactures technical glass perfected to the needs of medical and laboratory technology. Structured glass made by Berliner Glas ensures excellent readability in the surgery room and laboratory, and has remarkable haptic characteristics. Additionally, glass is resistant to various chemicals, thus allowing use in areas where high hygiene standards must be followed.


Berliner Glas goes one step further and provides custom front modules for its customers. In doing so, customers choose the degree of the development stage: from the electronic components within sub-assemblies, the design glass front panel, an assembly with front frames and clearly defined interfaces all the way to connecting to the customer’s system – everything is possible.


More information on solutions for touch applications from Berliner Glas can be found at the exhibition booth as well as in the specialist lecture titled: “Technical Glass – Structured Surface for the Perfect Touch Application” on Wednesday, November 15, at 11:30 a.m. in the COMPAMED HIGH-TECH FORUM by IVAM (Hall 8a, Stand G40).
