PVD (Physical Vapor Deposit) is the collective name for a number of different methods that create thin coatings, from below 100 nm to functional layers of up to 5 μm. Here we will tell you more about the technology used for everything from keeping crisps fresh to shielding electronics.
About Jörg Hinz
Born and grown up in Germany only to move to lovely Sweden at the age of 20, I still feel more like a cosmopolitan than anything else after years of traveling. Based on my background in product processing and marketing in international forestry, food and other industries I have gained a lot of experience from different product areas and markets. What have I learnt? It’s still mostly about people. 😊
Did you know that Sweden is in place 5 in Europe when it comes to the number of employed per capita in the medtech industry? Or that Germany alone has 30% of all Europe's medical technology employees? Medtech Europe has checked the pulse on Europe's medtech sector.
Meet Robert Rudensjö who is the latest addition to our marketing department. He met AMB for the first time around the turn of the century, when he worked at one of our large mobile phone customers. Now he becomes one in the gang “for real”, with southwestern Sweden as the guarding area.
Project manager Peter Franzén is back at AMB after a year-long employment for another company.
Medical Technology includes a vastly wide range, from a simple toothbrush or a sticking plaster to high-tech devices such as MRI or robotic surgery. But what does the term “medical technology” really mean?
Within the European Union, there is strictly regulated which medical devices that are allowed on the market. Right now, the European medical technology industry is transitioning from one medical device directive to two new EU regulations, which will be fully implemented in 2022.
