Partnership formed to work on next-generation of PAEK additive manufacturing
This research will be carried out by Victrex R&D and the University´s Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing (CALM). Both parties will focus on multiple AM technologies.
The two organisations have worked together previously to develop VICTREX PAEK polymers for 3D printing processes. From the partnership, VICTREX launched a high strength material for laser sintering (LS), a filament with better Z-strength than existing PAEK materials and better printability for filament fusion (FF).
