Lynxter, an innovator in the French additive manufacturing industry since 2016, specializes in developing machine tools for Industry 4.0 with a focus on 3D printing of polymers. 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.  By employing Kepstan® PEKK in its amorphous form (PEKK-A), they harnessed the unparalleled mechanical and temperature resistance of advanced 3D polymers, showcasing the critical role of polymers for 3D printing in modern engineering solutions.
