WHICH INDUSTRIES UTILIZE PEEK?

miniFactory Ultra is leveraged in many industries that use PEEK, PEKK and PAEK polymers.
One of the key development areas in aerospace is to reduce fuel consumption. One way to succeed here is to manufacture lighter parts; they enable lower energy use and thus reduce fuel consumption.
AEROSPACE
When schedules are non-negotiable, 3D printing gives defence manufacturers the freedom to rapidly manufacture or build complex, functional prototypes and spare parts.
DEFENCE
PEEK 3D printing is a very cost-effective manufacturing method for a wide variety of insulative parts. Therefore it should be considered for a wide range of high-temperature applications in electronics.

PEEK 3D PRINTING WITH MINIFACTORY

Polyaryletherketone (PAEK) is a family of semi-crystalline thermoplastics with high-temperature stability and high mechanical strength. The two best-known materials in this group that can be 3D printed using FFF technology are PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) and PEKK (Polyetherketoneketone).

PEEK 3D printing is an exciting opportunity, as 3D printing of the material which is at the top of the polymer pyramid allows parts to be manufactured faster, cheaper and more flexibly compared to traditional manufacturing methods. 

For semi-crystalline polymers, the choice of chamber temperature is mainly based on the crystallisation properties of the material. Thus, PEEK 3D printing requires a complete understanding of the material and a high-performance 3D printer such as miniFactory Ultra.

NEAT PEEK vs CARBON FIBER REINFROCED PEEK

PEEK and PEKK materials are also available for 3D printing in carbon fibre reinforced form. 
The carbon fibre improves the compressive strength, stiffness and temperature resistance of parts. 
Carbon fibres also stabilise the printed piece and ensure better dimensional accuracy of the parts to be printed.
