3D Printing, High Performance Plastics PEEK (polyetheretherketone)
My latest project is a ground-up development of a high performance Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D Printer. The printer is designed to produce three-dimensional medical implantable parts from PEEK.
3D models can be derived from a CT scan, to print rigid, high-performance, implantable, anatomically correct reconstructive supports.
Other complex structures can be achieved, such as first-of-its-kind 3D printed PEEK Porous Bone-FoamTM, which can be used with spinal spacer/cage implants to encourage bone growth within the implant.
This is my most challenging project to date. Patent-Pending thermal controls, custom hardware/software, and high-precision movement are just a few highlights.
