Although today there are several extrusion systems supporting high-temperature materials such as PEEK and other PAEK family polymers, Italian company ROBOZE was the very first firm to target these materials specifically, even when most thought it would be impossible to process them adequately without Stratasys’ patented sealed build chamber. Now ROBOZE is opening a new chapter in its growth by signing a deal with SOLVAY to become the standard platform for the production of components using SOLVAY’s KetaSpire PEEK polymers.

The two companies have signed a multi-year agreement to accelerate the adoption of high-performance 3D printing solutions in some of the most demanding industries. The partnership leverages Roboze’s printing technology with SOLVAY Specialty Polymers’ unique high-performance material portfolio, in order to accelerate the digitalization of manufacturing processes for just-in-time and on-demand part production.

“This partnership with ROBOZE is part of our strategy to build a powerful open system eco-system of 3D printing solutions tailored to our AM-ready high-performance materials,” said says Christophe Schramm, Business Manager for Additive Manufacturing at SOLVAY Specialty Polymers. “ROBOZE’s technology is a great fit for our KetaSpire PEEK and KetaSpire Carbon PEEK filaments, and ROBOZE’s market approach perfectly matches our ambition to offer a superior solution to our customers. We look forward to working together on enabling high-quality parts printing for our customers, notably in the Oil&Gas and industrial markets.”ROBOZE adds KetaSpire PEEK

In particular, ROBOZE and SOLVAY have developed an offer that combines ROBOZE’s Argo production solutions with SOLVAY Specialty Polymers’ KetaSpire PEEK and KetaSpire Carbon PEEK filaments, to enable metal replacement for prototyping, tooling, and end-use part production.

KetaSpire PEEK is known for its strong resistance at high temperatures and maintains its excellent mechanical properties at continuous operating temperatures up to 240°C (464°F), enabling metal replacement even in extreme environments. KetaSpire Carbon PEEK adds to the high performance of KetaSpire PEEK with even better mechanical strength, necessary for complex structural applications.

“Investing in your goal with a company like SOLVAY, always active in the research and innovation of materials engineering in different industries, is an opportunity that makes us very proud. I am sure that, in order to make a difference in the market and offer solutions for the digitalization of manufacturing globally, it is necessary to leverage our investments with collaborations between companies, people and competencies, belonging to different sectors. It is by merging our expertise that we will reveal the real value that technology like ROBOZE can offer to today’s and tomorrow’s manufacturers”, said Alessio Lorusso, ROBOZE CEO & Founder.
