Attendees Asked. We Delivered.

Attendees told us they wanted to attend an event with deeper, richer technical and engineering content and we did just that. We're excited to announce the NEW Medical Device Technology Exchange (MDTX) in Del Mar, CA and with this change, we announce our new conference chair, Carlos Gonzalez - Director of Content for Machine Design and Medical Design who will lead the new content direction. The NEW Medical Device Technology Exchange (MDTX) will expand its engineering, design, development tracks.

Session Tracks

Topic areas that will be covered:


The DESIGN track will focus on the ins and outs of designing a medical device. Engineers will learn the new tools and innovations available to them. These tools include advances in computer aided design and simulation, 3D printing for prototyping, and advanced electronics for the Internet of Things enabled world.

  • Computer-aided design (CAD) and simulation
  • Proof of concepts
  • 3D printing for prototype


DEVELOPMENT track helps engineers take their designs to the next step. Once they have completed their design, engineers need to visualize their design, create test plans, work with operational teams for production, and ensure their designs work within their targeted infrastructure.

  • Testing
  • Visualization with virtual/augmented reality
  • IoT deployment and working with data
  • Operations


When it comes time to build your device, engineers have several tools and resources at their disposal. The MANUFACTURING track will discuss the how to construct your medical device with the latest advancements in traditional machining and 3D printing. The track will also help engineers plan on how to layout the manufacturing line, supply chain, and packaging for small to large scale production.

  • Construction of devices with 3D printing and traditional manufacturing
  • How to organize your manufacturing line and plant
  • Supply chain and packaging


The medical device world is a heavily regulated one. The REGULATION track will provide engineers and manufacturers with knowledge on how to pass FDA and ISO guidelines and standards, integrate product improvements, and perform testing and verification. 

  • Passing FDA guidelines
  • Product improvements
  • Testing and verification
