Unlocking the possibilities for 3D printing PEEK and PAEK
Introducing a new 3DP performance polymer
Watch our video and explore the benefits of VICTREX AM 200 PAEK filament.
Benefits of using PAEK vs PEEK Polymer in Fused Filament Fabrication
Robert McKay, Head of business development and Silvia Berretta, Strategic technology manager of Victrex sat down with DiLabs to discuss VICTREX AM™ 200, a high performance LMPAEK™ filament.
enabling the production of highly complex, customised components
with digital design and fabrication of PAEK parts for rapid prototyping.
from reduced machining waste, assembly steps, and capital intensity.
All the benefits high-performance PAEK polymer combined with the benefits of additive manufacturing.
New AM optimised materials and advancing machine technology both contribute to stronger parts.
with polymers offering less warp in filament fusion than traditional PEEK polymers.
VICTREX AMTM 200 Filament
New performance options in 3D printing high-performance polymers.
Is additive manufacturing with PAEK polymer right for you?
Do you have parts in the ideal range?
Victrex has developed new PAEK materials that have been optimised for additive manufacturing, including filament fusion (FF) and laser sintering (LS). These new VICTREX™ PAEK polymer solutions have been developed as filaments and fine powder respectively. In LS, the new polymer grades have shown encouragingly low refresh rates, improving the recycle of unsintered powder, while maintaining good mechanical properties. In FF they have displayed improved mechanical properties and printability.
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 PAEK 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 PAEK. 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.
