Searching for the best solution for creating strong and light weight parts yourself?
This is not easy as the market is full of different systems and technologies that all claim to be the best. Are you looking for an industrial PEEK 3D printer that is:
✓ Fast, accurate and robust?
✓ Handles high temperatures?
✓ Competitively priced?
3D printing has many advantages compared to traditional manufacturing
- It is a complementary tool that can be integrated into current manufacturing processes to reduce steps, time to market and costs.
- You can produce complex geometries such as lattice structures and conformal channels to improve performance.
- Merge multiple parts into single or fewer components to improve reliability and reduce inventory.
- You can create fully bespoke and customized components to improve performance.
- You can deal easier and faster with design modifications.
- Light weight parts and only use build material where it is needed.
- Reduced tooling costs: parts can be manufactured directly without the need for tooling.
- Rapid design iterations right up to the manufacture.
- Produce the parts at or next to your desk.
- Waste can be reused: thermoplastic materials can be melted, cured (cooled down such that they become solid), melted again, cured again, and so forth.
Take it to the next level with high performance thermoplastics
Within the 3D printing industry, one of the top notch materials is PEEK. This high-performance material has amazing properties, such as chemical resistance, a low moisture absorption and great durability and strength. 3D printing PEEK is used for both prototyping and small batch production, it sees its application (among others) in the medical, aerospace and automotive industry. PEEK can also be used as a substitute for metals in certain applications.
Similar to PEEK is the material ULTEM (PEI). This thermoplastic boasts a high temperature resistance, great dielectric strength and an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. ULTEM is a great material for medical use due to its low moisture absorption and it is used in aeroplanes as well. It is a cheaper alternative to PEEK, making it more suitable for prototyping. Because PEEK and ULTEM have a higher melting point compared to 'regular' thermoplastics, you need a 3D printer which can handle higher temperatures. Tractus3D high temperature PEEK printers are especially developed to be capable of printing a wide variety of high-performance materials.

✓ Because your goal is to have the highest quality output fast
Fast printing speed
600 millimeters per second
When using a PEEK 3D printer, you will want to see your finished object as soon as possible. At Tractus3D we know this feeling all too well, which is why the travel speed of our industrial PEEK 3D printer goes up to 600 millimeter per second and the printing speed up to 200 mm/s. This means that an object of 100 gram can be finished in less than 1 hour. With this speed, your 3D designs will become reality in no time.
0,01 mm (10 microns)
When designing exquisite models for PEEK 3D printing, you want them to be as detailed as possible so that you can truly see the expertise put into it. With a resolution of 0,01 millimeter (10 microns) on the XY-axis and a resolution 0,05 millimeter (50 microns) on the Z-axis, our PEEK 3D printer can print even the finest details. When your objects do not require such detail, you can print at a lower resolution up to 1000 micron (1 mm).
Intiutive touchscreen interface
Large Full Color Display
The user-friendly 5 inch touchscreen enables you to easy operate the PEEK 3D printer. The modern and advanced interface has a lot of handy functionalities and you can conveniently choose which design you want to print. The touchscreen also gives you the ability to modify settings directly on the printer during printing, such as temperatures and speeds. It is possible to operate the PEEK 3D printer via other devices through an internet connection.
✓ Because you want to have flexibility and freedom in material choice
The enclosure preserves the heat of the PEEK 3D printer. The heated chamber of the T850P makes sure the temperature inside is at the required level, up to 65 degrees Celsius. Temperature fluctuations are kept to a minimum, including the risk of warping. As a result you are not limited in the 3D print materials you want to use.
Not tied to one supplier
Our PEEK 3D printer has an 'open filament system', offering you freedom of choice. This means you are free to choose your prefered filament (thermoplastic) supplier and not obligated to buy a particular brand. Print with over 20 different print materials, just make sure the filament is 1.75 millimeter in diameter.
With the T650P and T850P you can print high-performance materials such as PEEK, PEI/ULTEM™ and Carbon PEEK (a high-quality polymer with metal properties). With excellent mechanical properties, resistance to thermal degradation and excellent strength, these filaments are perfect for professional and industrial use.
✓ Because 3D printing quality is depending on perfect first layers
Automatic build platform compensation
To ensure the first layer sticks to the build plate and has an even thickness, its important that the platform is ‘leveled’. With auto build platform calibration a sensor in the plate checks for any imperfections and automatically compensates it. The calibration is done in less than 50 seconds. This saves a lot of time compared to manually calibrating and increases the 3D print success rate.
Heated build platform
The heated build platform improves the adhesion of the first layers to the build plate. Each filament material requires a particular build platform temperature for optimal adhesion. A heated build platform reduces the risk of issues while printing. The temperature of the heated print bed goes up to 175 degrees Celsius (in 105 seconds to 100 degrees), enabling you to print with almost any material.
Glass build plate
The heated build platform has a glass plate. This surface allows you to use adhesives, for example glue sticks or hair spray. Prints will stick better to the build plate, improving the success rate of the first layers. When the print is finished you can easily remove the object and clean the glass plate, so it is ready for use next time you want to create something amazing.
✓ Because you want to be able to work undisturbed on other tasks as well
Ready to print
Less than 30 minutes
We understand you want to start using your new industrial 3D printer as fast as possible. All of our 3D printers are ‘ready to print’ and a starter kit is included. Just plug it in and, follow the steps of the manual and you will be ready to go.
Also a Simplify3D lifetime license is included for free. Smart 3D printing software to provide you the best results.
Light and silent
35 decibel (dB)
We measure the noise level of our 3D printers regularly to make sure the sound level is as low as possible. We can assure you, operating at very low decibels, the printer fades into the background to provide you an undisturbed working environment. It's possible to work next to the 3D printer without being distracted. Our PEEK 3D printer weighs far less than most other printers. This makes it easy to move without having to take it apart.
Out of filament detection
When your PEEK 3D printer runs out of filament, it will go in stand-by mode, in which the nozzle will move to the side. Once you have added new filament, the print will continue where it left off and finish your object.
Also in unforeseen circumstances, such as a power outage, you can continue your print from where it left off. This way we ensure a quick, foolproof PEEK 3D printing process and reduction of material waste.
✓ Because you deserve a machine that lasts and great service
Easy to maintain
As is possible with any machine, some parts can get worn over time. If this happens, you can simply buy a replacement which you can easily install yourself. If you require assistance, our skilled engineers are always ready to offer support.

3D printed custom motorcycle parts cost 90% less
3D printing custom bike parts has enabled Joost Motoren to widen their service and take on more customers while it also means that there is no limit to what they can achieve. This new working process makes it possible for Joost Motoren to create the final part in just a few hours. There is no longer the need to rely and wait on external suppliers. It also means that the designs of the 3D printed bike parts became owned by Joost Motoren and this safeguards the intellectual property of the company.
The old methods involve trial and error and used to be time-consuming. Since the implementation of 3D printing into their working processes, the delivering time and number of errors have been significantly reduced. There are less people involved and there are no physical products to break or damage. “For my customers, this service has an enormous advantage as I could really fulfill all of their wishes and they were no longer dependent on the standard retail parts. I can 3D Print the hard to find spare parts now.”. Read more here about the advantages of 3D printing for Joost Motoren.
Customized orthopedic solutions are developed faster
The results for Orto+ are quite phenomenal as there is now a level of accuracy that comes with using a 3D printer that has never been seen before. Orto+ now has the ability to create many different kinds of 3D printed prosthetics that are anatomically correct and designed around the needs of each user. Alongside this, the process is also more cost effective and efficient. 3D printing offers them the possibility to alter the whole production process in a way that has never been seen before.
Creating orthopaedic models using traditional methods involved specialist technicians who have the experience, skills, knowledge and training to manage the task. However, now the whole process is automated while customization is taken to a whole new level. “On average it takes 2-3 design iterations before a design is finalized. Through using 3D printing, we can simply create individual designs in a timeframe that is shorter, more cost efficient and require a lot less labour.” You can read more here about the benefits of 3D printing for Orto+.

Why does Tractus3D gives you so much more value than others in the market?
Founded by a man on a mission
To know Tractus3D is to know its founder. A few years ago inventor and engineer Daniël van Mourik bought his first 3D printers because he wanted to produce customised parts for his own business. While he saw major opportunities in the 3D printing technology, he was not at all pleased with the machines itself. When a friend asked him: "When you think you can do better, why don't you?" he accepted the challenge.
He set out on a quest to build the best 3D printer so businesses could take real advantage of this new technology. Led by Daniël in his role as chief engineer, the Tractus3D team has changed the 3D printing industry. Until now he keeps looking for ways to improve, making sure his 3D printers will stay amongst the best in the market.
We're obsessed with innovation
It is probably in our Dutch blood; all Tractus3D engineers love everything that is new and different. Tractus3D is responsible for countless industry-changing 3D printer innovations:
2015 - One of the WORLD'S FIRST (!) High Temperature PEEK 3D printer.
2016 - THE LARGEST commercially available Delta 3D printer: up to 2,1 meter.
2018 - Introduction of the HEATED CHAMBER feature: provides optimal thermal management for our PEEK 3D printers.
2019 - Developments and innovations continue, but don't worry! Our 3D printers are upgradable so you can always benefit from the newest 3D printing technology.
