SEM of brittle flexural fractured cross‐section of printed CF/PEEK parts. (a) The shell of printed CF/PEEK parts. (b) The core of printed CF/PEEK parts. (c), (d) The enlarged figures of (a), (b), respectively (red circles and blue arrows mean carbon fibers and direction of printing filaments, respectively). Chinese researchers are investigating the power of short carbon fibers combined with PEEK, in relation to FDM 3D printing, a method popular with users due to its power, affordability, and speed. Outlining their findings in “ Flexural Properties and Fracture Behavior of CF/PEEK in Orthogonal Building Orientation by FDM: Microstructure and Mechanism ,” authors Qiushi Li, Wei Zhao, Yongxiang Li, Weiwei Yang, and Gong Wang test this composite for possible use in a growing number of industrial applications. PEEK is finding emerging uses in industrial FDM 3D printing, and is known to produce parts with good strength and heat resistance that go […]
