Unlocking the possibilities for 3D printing PEEK structures

We are at the fore of innovation, working with industry pioneers to meet unrealised needs

The potential benefits of using our PEEK polymer for 3D printing

Improved technologies for 3D printing of PEEK-OPTIMA™ -based polymers can open up a range of possibilities for design engineers. Potential benefits include:
3D printing of VICTREX™ PEEK and PAEK-based polymer

Working together to solve the toughest 3D printing and additive manufacturing challenges.

Invibio has developed new forms of PEEK materials that have been optimized for additive manufacturing, including filament fusion (FF), fused deposition modelling (FDM) and laser sintering (LS). Medical device designers can benefit from easier manufacturing combined with the demonstrable clinical and mechanical benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA polymers. 

Successfully printing parts requires an eco-system of solutions including the right materials, a capable machine, design, and additive manufacturing process know-how. We are working to establish a more complete set of solutions for 3D printing of PEEK components and parts. We would like to hear about the parts that you need to make, and explore how we might help you with our current or future 3DP capabilities.

We are working with industry leaders to create new solutions for additive manufacturing of PEEK. For example, we are currently collaborating with the University of Exeter on R&D in pursuit of the full potential of high-performance additive manufacturing polymers. We are also collaborating with machine makers and customers to accelerate our collective progress.

Optimising high-performance thermoplastics for 3D printing

 Our PEEK polymers are capable of being processed in a number of additive manufacturing processes and are available in a number of product forms including granules, powder, filament, and composite prepreg.
Filament is fed into a print head within a heated chamber that melts and deposits the polymer on the print surface. 
As part of our AM Solutions Network, Bond High Performance 3D Technologies has developed an advanced melt extrusion process using a new rod intermediate form and advanced process control that results in near injection moulded strengths in the z direction.
Emerging technologies promise to merge the benefits of additive manufacturing with PAEK thermoplastic composites. Victrex is a leader in PAEK composite technology, providing new PAEK polymers optimised for composites, aerospace grade UD tape prepregs, and parts fabrication from TXV composites.
