Additive-manufacturing and 3D-printing peek parts for the gas & oil industry

Additive-manufacturing and 3D-printing peek parts for the gas & oil industry.The erroneous notion has sometimes been that any 3D printer can be used for fabricating just about any solid object conceivable. This however is not true; in fact there are at least 8 different kinds of 3D printing technologies. Each of these technologies is conditioned for 3D printers designed for a specific material class thus delivering different mechanical performances for parts fabricated. ¬†Although still relatively a young fabrication method, an important news about 3D printing technologies is that it now has about 30 years of practice-based evidence to prove that it has evolved to become a tool for the production of highly complex, high value, engineering critical parts.
