Oxford Performance Materials Inc. (OPM), leader in additive manufacturing and advanced materials solutions, has launched the first two grades of its OXFAB 3D printing technology for aerospace and industrial applications.

OXFAB is OPM's proprietary technology platform and formulation of poly-ether-ketone-ketone (PEKK), an ultra-high performance polymer most recently used in a joint research venture with Yale to produce 3D printed medical devices. Its exceptional strength, thermal and radiation resilience and wear properties make it the ideal for industrial and aerospace applications.

OPM Aerospace & Industrial uses OXFAB technology to deliver lightweight, high performance, cost-competitive, 3D printed thermoplastic parts for commercial and military aircraft, spacecraft and other industrial markets. The company's additive manufacturing technology produces very complex parts that equal the performance of a range of traditionally manufactured aluminium and composite components at lighter weight and reduced cost.
