Arevo Labs announced the availability of additive-manufacturing (AM) services to make 3D-printed composite parts for demanding end-use applications. Available materials are PEEK (polyetheretherketone) and PAEK (polyaryletherketone) polymer-based composite formulations, which can benefit industries requiring on-demand part production such as aerospace, medical and oil and gas.
Arevo Labs’ composite formulations use high-performance polymer matrix with carbon nanotubes, carbon fiber and glass fiber. These composite materials elevate performance thresholds for strength, stiffness, durability, wear resistance, chemical resistance, thermal stability and electrostatic discharge (ESD) properties. The result is additive manufacturing with state-of-the-art materials to produce the most advanced thermoplastic composite parts available today. The 3D-printed parts are optimized for mechanical properties using Arevo’s software algorithms that encompass additive finite-element analysis and true 3D printing for lighter, stronger parts with unmatched properties.
