Here’s a small, plastics-centric sampling of the equipment, materials, and products on exhibit to whet your appetite for the much-anticipated return of the in-person event to Anaheim, CA, on Aug. 10 to 12, 2021.

The co-located Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West and Plastec West trade show in Anaheim, CA, next week features hundreds of suppliers, many of whom specialize in plastics-related products and services for the medical technology industry. Exhibitors run the gamut from materials suppliers and molding and extrusion equipment builders to contract molders serving medical device OEMs. A small selection of products and equipment that will be featured at the event is previewed in this gallery. Much, much more awaits at MD&M West and Plastec West, as well as at the automation, packaging, and design and manufacturing shows that run alongside. A full list of exhibitors is available on the event website.

The largest annual medical manufacturing event in North America, MD&M West is supplemented by the new Design. Engineer. Build. conference (formerly called the MD&M West conference) featuring dozens of speakers, experts in their fields, discussing the latest developments in digital health, smart manufacturing, 3D printing, regulatory issues, and much more. Of special interest to the medical plastics community is the MiniTec 2021 conference, Saving the World Through Medical Plastics and Sustainable Solutions, organized in collaboration with the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Medical Plastics Division. The daylong conference is scheduled for August 10; more information can be found in the article, “SPE Conference Maps Intersection of Medical Plastics and Sustainability.” The full Design. Engineer.
