Invibio Biomaterial Solutions launched PEEK-OPTIMA AM Filament, an implantable PEEK polymer that is optimized for additive manufacturing. This makes available implantable-grade PEEK-OPTIMA polymer in a form specifically developed for Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) additive manufacturing processes.

The additional format of PEEK-OPTIMA enables hospital facilities to custom-make PEEK devices in-house, at the point of care, with FDM/FFF-compatible machines and is particularly suitable in specialties such as craniomaxillofacial, which demand design precision and manufacture at speed.

“Invibio’s new PEEK-OPTIMA AM filament has been launched to support medical device manufacturers as they assess the FFF/FDM route of additive manufacturing to help support the next generation of devices for a variety of demanding medical applications, such as CMF devices, spinal and orthopaedic implants,” said Dr. John Devine, Medical Business Director at Invibio.

PEEK-OPTIMA LT1 AM filament is a 1.75mm monofilament and is compatible with high-quality FDM/FFF machines, optimized for 3D printing of medical devices, and is available worldwide, directly from Invibio.
