High-performance Polymers from the 3D Printer: Indmatec GmbH

Heat and cold, shocks and friction: The materials used in vehicles and manufacturing machines have to survive high loads. Indmatec GmbH, a spinoff of KIT, has made the high-performance polymer of polyetheretherketone, PEEK, fit for 3D printing by fused filament fabrication. “Our specially developed printer produces a layered structure of high temperature and mechanical stability,” Managing Director Tony Tran-Mai says. The innovative material cannot only be used in automotive and mechanical engineering, but also in electrical engineering and semiconductor industry as well as in medicine, e.g. for the fabrication of implants or prostheses. The spinoff of KIT was chosen to be the best startup during this year’s Venture Capital Pitch in Baden-Württemberg.
