PEEK is a high performance thermoplastic which is only used for highly demanding applications, since it is also very hard to process. At Injex we took the challenge to demonstrate that PEEK prototypes can be produced in as little as 24 hours.
When developing new types of in-ear silicone shells, Sonova previously had to accept waiting times of up to six weeks for new prototypes. With Injex' additive tooling process, this time has now be reduced to a few days.
The two startups 2point Engineering and Injex collaborated on the development of a portable cooling vest. Using additively manufactured tooling, Injex first carried out a material test for laser welding trials and then manufactured a small series of 200 in injection molding.
