We can do even more with PEEK … in Additive
Manufacturing, we can use your ideas, which you have already implemented
theoretically with 3D CAD programs, to deliver component samples made
of PEEK within a few days – and all this without any tooling costs!
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a new process for producing spatial
structures by sintering from the powdery starting material PEEK. It is a
generative layering process: the workpiece is built up layer by layer.
As a result of the action of the laser beams, arbitrary
three-dimensional geometry can also be produced with undercuts, for e.g. Workpieces that can not be produced in conventional mechanical or
casting production. This happens fully automatically and takes only a
few hours, depending on the geometry and size of the parts. The control
technology base for the lasers is generated from 3D CAD data. The
preparation of tools is therefore eliminated.
A high-performance polymer from the group of
polyaryletherketones, is characterized by excellent material properties.
Excellent high temperature performance, high wear resistance, excellent
chemical resistance, best fire, smoke and toxicity behavior, good
hydrolysis resistance, potential biocompatibility and sterilizability.
