Santa Clara, CA - Arevo Labs has introduced additive manufacturing services to make 3D-printed composite parts for demanding end-use applications. Available materials are polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymer-based composite formulations that are optimized for additive manufacturing.

The company's composite formulations use high-performance polymer matrix with carbon nanotubes, carbon fiber, and glass fiber to elevate performance thresholds for strength, stiffness, durability, wear resistance, chemical resistance, thermal stability, and electrostatic discharge (ESD) properties. The 3D-printed parts are optimized for mechanical properties using the company’s advanced software algorithms that encompass Additive Finite Element Analysis and true 3D printing for lighter, stronger parts.

“I can confirm that the drone arm printed with Arevo’s Katevo-CF material with no internal structure is much stronger than a carbon fiber-filled SLS arm with inner ribs,” says Ido Baruchin, head of design at Matternet—a company that has developed the first smart drone for transportation.
