EOS and Victrex team up to develop premium PEEK material for laser-sintering

EOS, the world's foremost manufacturer of laser-sintering systems, and Victrex, the leading global manufacturer of PEEK polymer, have cooperated closely to develop a new PEEK material specifically designed for high-temperature laser-sintering.  

This is the first PEEK material that can be sintered and processed on EOS' advanced, high-temperature P 800 machine, which was introduced at EuroMold 2008 last December.   

The new material is based on Victrex® PEEK™ high-performance polymer and will be exclusively marketed by EOS as PEEK HP3. PEEK HP3 is characterized by an exceptional combination of properties that include fire resistance, light weight, high tensile strength and biocompatibility.  

According to Dr. Hans Langer, EOS founder and CEO: "The development of this system was a logical step forward into the future because laser-sintering is ideally suited for premium and complex applications which are frequently based on high-performance polymers. The EOS PEEK HP3 material based on VICTREX PEEK polymer has been developed in close cooperation with Victrex and is exclusively marketed by EOS. This is the first PEEK material that can be sintered and processed on the high-temperature system P 800. It will help to constantly further develop this material segment. Consequently, we look forward to close co-operative relations with the global leading PEEK manufacturer."  

Laser-sintering quickly produces parts directly from electronic data, accelerating product development and optimizing production processes. The technology provides greater freedom of design to engineers, developers and product designers in all industries.  The generative layer build-up process results in maximum flexibility, creating and producing 3D geometries efficiently and cost-effectively.  

EOS and Victrex plan to conduct joint workshops and informative meetings to educate users about the broad potential of sintering technology using PEEK materials.
