"Our products in the medical field are rarely seen since they are often a part of the manufacturing process or imbedded in another device. Now we want to highlight the fascinating work happening within the medical sector and encourage more people and partners to look into some of these solutions and be inspired to advance the world of medical innovations even further," says Jessica Alm, Executive Vice President and Head of Communications at Sandvik Group.
