MINNEAPOLIS — The decision of LifeScience Alley and MedTech World to join forces to create Minnesota MedTech Week has “produced an event with a sum that’s greater than its parts,” said Accumold Vice President of Marketing and Customer Strategy Aaron Johnson.

“We’ve made the trip up Interstate 35 for more than a few years now for MedTech World’s annual MD&M Minneapolis event. It’s always been a perfect spot for our marketing team to connect with the bright lights of the medical device manufacturing sector,” Johnson said. “This year’s Nov.4-5 event works even better because so many pivotal conversations have started at either MD&M Minneapolis or LSA’s annual conference. Bringing those two events together just concentrates the industry’s star power and opportunities in a single place.”

Minnesota MedTech Week participants get the benefits of previous MD&M Minneapolis event with the chance to have a hands-on experience with Accumold and other top suppliers and products in the medical field. They also have an opportunity to learn about the latest trends and technology.

“Organizers are absolutely right when they say that every day brings a new regulatory, reimbursement and market access challenges. Minnesota MedTech Week is the venue to keep up with all those changes that impact the medical device industry,” Johnson added.

Since its inception in 1985, Accumold’s mission has been the production of super-micro, ultra-precision, plastic injection-molded parts. Parts manufactured by the firm are critical components of the medical, automotive, military, aerospace and telecommunications industries. They can be found in micro-electronics, cell phones, telecommunications, surgical tools, hearing aids, medical devices, antennas, connectors and more. To produce those parts, Accumold builds specialized molding machines engineered to handle volumes from prototypes to millions per year while maintaining consistent, precise tolerances that are unique in the industry.
