New polyetheretherketone (PEEK) stock shapes from Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products combine custom color capabilities with PEEK's top-notch properties—including chemical and stress-crack resistance at elevated temperatures and high mechanical strength. Made from Ketron PEEK GF30, a 30% glass-filled material, the new stock shapes are suitable for medical parts that require tight tolerance machining and repeated sterilizations. In laboratory trials, Ketron® PEEK GF30 did not degrade after more than 250 autoclave cycles. Learn more at the website www.quadrantepp.com.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
