Professional PEEK 3D Printing Solutions
Apiums advanced temperature management system eliminates commonly occuring printing failures with PEEK.
The professional 3D printers of Apium are capable of printing PEEK in its semi-crystalline phase eliminating the need for any heat-treatment and the geometrical deformations related to annealing. The patent pending temperature management system and the material processing profiles minimize the warping problem and enables the successful print of complex geometries.
PEEK is your lightweight material solution where manufacturing costs, durability in harsh environments and processing flexibility play a significant role. It offers great benefits for landing gear hubcaps, aircraft door handles, cable ties, composite fasteners and many more aerospace applications.
PEEK exhibits an excellent combination of strength, durability and heat resistance. PEEK is the material solution where system weight, energy efficiency and a wide range of operating temperatures (-196°C to 260°C) play a significant role in your operations.
Oil & Gas
PEEK is the material of choice for your oil and gas applications which require high quality equipment and tool systems to extreme temperatures, corrosive fluids and gases, and high pressures. For antenna sleeves, valve seats, electrical connectors, primary seals, impellers and many more system components, benefit from the outstanding characteristics of the material.
Semiconductors & Electronics
For the two main properties requirements -electrical insulation and mechanical function- of your electronics applications being contact sockets, insulators, wafer carriers, chemical cleaning systems, etc., Polyetheretherketone is the material of choice with its outstanding properties.
PEEK offers optimum properties for in-vivo applications in many aspects. A PEEK implant is very similar to the human bone in mechanical stiffness and elasticity and can therefore follow the internal movements of the bone. Since this material is radiolucent, it is suitable for radiological diagnostics and therapeutic radiation technology. Thanks to its insulating properties, the material is also less susceptible to temperature effects than its metal substitute materials.
