Arevo Labs (San Jose, CA, US) has launched new additive manufacturing services to 3D print PEEK (polyetheretherketone) and PAEK (polyaryletherketone) composite parts.

The company’s composite formulations use high performance polymer matrix with carbon nanotubes, carbon fiber and glass fiber. The company claims that these composite materials elevate performance thresholds for strength, stiffness, durability, wear resistance, chemical resistance, thermal stability and electrostatic discharge (ESD) properties. The 3D-printed parts are optimized for mechanical properties using Arevo’s advanced software algorithms that encompass additive finite element analysis and 3D printing to produce lighter and stronger parts.

“We are excited to announce commercial availability of 3D-printed PEEK and PAEK composite parts for the first time,” said Hemant Bheda, CEO and founder of Arevo Labs. “We have successfully developed end-use applications in aerospace, single-use medical devices, oil & gas and factory automation and are working closely with OEMs to scale up production.”

Arevo Labs is speaking at Carbon Fiber 2016 in Knoxville. For more information, visit www.carbonfiberevent.com.
