turbine_cover.pngIndustrial applications

Industrial applications in 3D printing often are highly demanding in terms of material performance. Our Rilsan® PA11, Kynar® PVDF and Ultra-high-performance Kepstan® PEKK enable 3D printing of industrial pieces with the most demanding requirements such as low water absorption, low flammability as well as fatigue and impact resistance. Today our lightweight materials are used for printing industrial pieces such as bearing cages, pico turbines, pipe fittings and embankment rollers as replacement of metal parts and stockshape. The combination of advanced material performance with additive manufacturing promise to disrupt the supply chain in the industrial segment.

talee 400x400.pngHealthcare applications

Rilsan® Polyamide 11 is the material of choice for medical device applications such as orthotics and prosthetics that require open customization. Thanks to the material's flexibility, 3D-printed devices for orthotics provide a high level of comfort to patients. Also, 3D printed devices with Rilsan® Polyamide 11 are resistant to impact, and chemicals related to sweating and are easy to clean. Therefore our customers choose 100% bio-based Rilsan® Polyamide 11 for application as ankle-foot orthosis, orthopedic insoles and cranial orthosis.

Lynxter, a French company founded in 2016, designs and builds industry 4.0 additive manufacturing machine tools. The R&D team from Lynxter worked on improving the mass of a cast aluminum intake manifold. In order to optimize the weight of this engine assembly, the teams had to rethink its design and composition and make the choice to print it in PEKK.  In its amorphous form (PEKK-A), Kepstan® PEKK delivered the level of mechanical and temperature resistance required for this application.
