New PAEK Materials Being Optimized for the Latest Eos Laser Sintering Platform

January 13 2020

University of Exeter commissions recently launched AM (3D printing) platform as part of its ongoing collaboration with Victrex to optimize the advantages of PAEK polymers.

The University of Exeter, in collaboration with Victrex, has completed commissioning of the new EOS P 810, laser sintering platform for high temperature polymers. The strategic arrangement aims to introduce next-generation VICTREX PAEK polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM (Additive Manufacturing) processes. Investment in the new state-of-the-art equipment, and its commissioning, are expected to accelerate the commercialization of AM materials for high performance parts.

The Centre for Additive Layer Manufacturing (CALM) at Exeter is one of the first to commission the recently launched equipment. The new EOS P 810 is capable of printing with materials that have melting temperatures around 300°C (572°F) and particularly suitable for the new low-melting-point PAEK polymers, designed and optimized by Victrex specifically for AM. The work invested in this production-ready machine, which has a build volume of 700 x 380 x 380mm (2.30 x 1.25 x 1.25ft) and two 70-watt lasers, is aimed at ensuring that future demand for large-scale parts will be readily met by the market as the platform is rolled out across the supply chain.
