UK-based chemicals company Victrex says that it has invested in a Dutch 3D printing company.

Bond High Performance 3D Technology has developed a range of 3D printing machinery and software which can produce parts from existing thermoplastic grades.

‘Our investment in Bond´s 3D technology is a logical way to accelerate 3D printed PAEK/PEEK parts to market,’ said Jakob Sigurdsson, Victrex CEO.

Victrex and Bond say that they will initially focus on developing parts in the semiconductor segment using commercially available products and say that functional parts from existing PEEK grades may also have value in aerospace, energy, automotive, manufacturing and engineering applications.
