PEEK machined parts

As one of the world leaders in the production of semi-finished PEEK (TECAPEEK) products, we have unrivaled experience with this high-performance product. With more than 50 years of experience, Ensinger Machined Parts specialises in the machining of engineering plastics such as extruded, compressed and injection moulded PEEK.

Our range includes for example the following materials:

  • TECAPEEK natural
  • TECAPEEK GF30 natural (glass filled)
  • TECAPEEK CF30 natural (carbon filled)
  • TECAPEEK PVX black (sliding application)
  • PEEK grades for semiconductor and electronics
  • TECAPEEK ID blue, UD blue and TF10 blue for food industry
  • TECAPEEK HT black and ST black (high temperature)
  • TECAPEEK MT  and TECAPEEK MT XRO in several colours, TECAPEEK MT CF30 black,  and TECAPEEK MT CLASSIXTM white for medical applications

The knowledge as a manufacturer enables us to master the complex machining of this plastic material, in particular thanks to the following: 

  • Manufacturing processes designed by our methods and industrialisation experts
  • Suitable tools and clamping systems
  • Complex and specific stabilisation processes

To acquire the greatest expertise on the market, two elements were crucial:

  • Our project monitoring
  • Our ability to solve, in partnership with our customers, the many technical challenges surrounding the machining of PEEK

Case studY

Composite Robotic Arm

insert made of TECAPEEK natural

Metal replacement with TECAPEEK natural inside a carbon fiber composite robotic arm

In high speed moving components, saving weight is crucial to reducing inertia and improving efficiency. In this case study, a composite robotic arm used for high-speed picking and handling Delta Robots was enhanced by replacing a metal insert with TECAPEEK natural high performance thermoplastic material.
