Skye Avionics is proud to offer inhouse 3D Printing. Our Markforged x3 Industrial 3D printer is state of the art and expands our manufacturing capabilities to include production of aviation components from fireproof materials that are FAA approved for inside cockpit use.
Markforged brand materials
Onyxtm, Onyx FRtm
OnyxTM is a micro carbon fiber filled nylon that is tough, strong and chemical resistant. Onyx FRTM provides the same durability but with the added benefit of being non-flammable.
Nylon White parts are smooth, non-abrasive, and easily painted. They can be reinforced with any continuous fiber and work best for non-marring work holding, repeated handling, and cosmetic parts.
Carbon Fiber has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of our reinforcing fibers. Six times stronger and eighteen times stiffer than Onyx, Carbon Fiber reinforcement is commonly used for parts that replace machined aluminum.
Fiberglass is our entry level continuous fiber, providing high strength at an accessible price. 2.5 times stronger and eight times stiffer than Onyx, Fiberglass reinforcement results in strong, robust tools.
Kevlar® possesses excellent durability, making it optimal for parts that experience repeated and sudden loading. As stiff as fiberglass and much more ductile, it can be used for a wide variety of applications.
High Strength High Temperature (HSHT) Fiberglass exhibits aluminum strength and high heat tolerance. Five times as strong and seven times as stiff as Onyx, it’s best used for parts loaded in high operating temperatures.
