As a demonstration of its continued commitment to the research and development of new metal replacement solutions for industrial 3D printing, Roboze completed another important step in materials science by introducing its new PEEK matrix composite: Helios PEEK 2005.

With the aim of offering new performance and application opportunities to its customers, Helios PEEK 2005 is a PEEK matrix composite material filled with ceramic. The new filament offers greater stability at high temperatures and increases the finished surface of parts printed with Roboze 3D printing solutions. The ceramic phase has smaller dimensions when compared with the more common carbon and glass fibers; making Helios PEEK 2005 ideal to produce components with complex geometry, characterized by thin walls.

Roboze did another important step in materials science by introducing its new PEEK matrix composite: Helios PEEK 2005 The monocrystalline nature of the reinforcement allows the elimination of grain boundaries and the minimization of crystallographic defects, maximizing its effectiveness. This feature is also fundamental for accelerating the time-to-market of end-users as it offers a reduction in post-processing times of over 60% compared to other super polymers and composites. Due to the intrinsic low thermal conductivity of the ceramic reinforcement, Helios PEEK 2005 exhibits high thermal insulation properties even when exposed to operating temperatures above 170°C. The printed parts are light, with low electrical conductivity, suitable for applications where the insulation characteristic is a fundamental technical requirement.

“At Roboze, we have seen great strides with the use of our 3D printing technology in sectors including aerospace, energy, and motorsports. We work closely with many of these regulated industries, supporting the integration of additive manufacturing technology from prototype to production,” said Simone Cuscito, CTO at Roboze. “Helios PEEK 2005 derives precisely from the needs of these industries and is an excellent candidate for applications that require specifications of lightness, mechanical strength, and heat resistance.” With the printability of Helios PEEK 2005, combined with Roboze 3D printers, the company allows for the production of high-quality components for
regulated industries, which are always looking for new solutions to replace metal.

The new Roboze filament will be available in March on the Roboze 3D Parts Marketplace, the company’s on-demand 3D printing service. This is supported by a network of specialized centers, distributed around the world and equipped with Roboze 3D printing technology.
