In the ever-increasing demand for mobility the aviation industry grows significantly. Key innovations within this industry relate to weight reductions resulting in a direct contribution for fuel efficiency. High performing polymers, such as PEEK, contribute to this goal by replacing metals. In average PEEK is 70% lighter then comparable metal parts.
Within this trend 3D printing is a contribution to the opportunity of realizing new products in every stage of the design- or life-cycle. Solutions can be found in a wide range of applications such as cabin interior parts, seating components or structural parts. PEEK aerospace products from Bond3D printing technology will help the aerospace industry to not settle for metal.
