A recognized leader in advanced materials science, Oxford Performance Materials Inc. (OPM) was founded in 2000 to exploit and commercialize the world’s highest performing thermoplastics, with a focus on poly-ether-ketone-ketone (PEKK). OPM develops proprietary material, process, and application technologies and applies high performance additive manufacturing (HPAM®) to produce fully functional, end-use structural parts.
OPM Biomedical is a pioneer in personalized medicine, 3D printing OsteoFab® cranial and facial implants as an OEM, and spinal implants and additional products on a contract manufacturing basis. OPM Biomedical is the first and only company to receive FDA 510(k) clearance to manufacture 3D printed patient-specific polymeric implants, and has a total of four 510(k) clearances in its portfolio.
OPM Industrial produces 3D printed OXFAB® production parts for highly demanding oil & gas, transportation and semiconductor applications. OXFAB® structures offer significant weight, cost, and time-to-market reductions that are defined in a set of specified performance attributes in the exhaustive OPM B-Basis database, developed in conjunction with NASA and Northrop Grumman.
The OPM Materials business unit develops proprietary OXPEKK® thermoplastic products and other materials for biomedical, aerospace, defense, and industrial applications.
