Tractus3D is pushing the Limits of 3D Printing in PEEK
Tractus3D has launched their next generation PEEK 3D printer, the T650P. With its build volume up to 315 millimeters in height, high resolution (10 microns) and affordability (€7.900,-) we are setting a new standard in PEEK 3D printing. The T650P can 3D print a wide variety of filaments. From the more standard materials like PLA, ABS and PETG to high temperature materials such as PEEK, Carbon PEEK, PEI/ULTEM™ and everything in between, such as POM, PRO1, Nylon, NinjaFlex, etc.
Speed of 400 mm/s
The Tractus3D PEEK printer combines a fast printing speed with high accuracy. The travel speed is 400 mm/s and the printing speed goes up to 200 mm/s, depending on the filament used.
Incredible resolution of 10 microns
With a resolution of 0,01 millimeter (10 microns) on the XY-axis and a resolution of 0,05 millimeter (50 microns) on the Z-axis, the T650P prints even the finest details. When objects do not require such detail, it’s possible to 3D print at a lower quality up to 1000 microns (1 mm).
Temperatures up to 450° Celsius
With a nozzle temperature up to 450°C and a maximum bed temperature of 175°C, it can handle all kind of filaments. From the more standard filaments like PLA, ABS and PETG to high-performance materials such as PEEK, Carbon PEEK and PEI/ULTEM™. Users are always free to choose their preferred filament supplier and not obligated to buy a particular brand.
No temperature fluctuations
The closed chamber preserves the heat of the 3D printer and temperature fluctuations are kept to a minimum. As a result you will not have to compromise on the quality of your prints.
Work in peace (35 Db)
Operating at low decibels, it’s possible to work next to the PEEK 3D printer without being distracted.
Low weight (9.5 kg)
With just 9.5 kilo’s the Tractus3D T650P is one of the lightest PEEK 3D printers available.
The T650P is priced at €7.900,- including a Service Level Agreement, Simplify3D software license and a starter kit. This makes 3D printing PEEK accessible for every business.
Tractus3D does not make products that turn obsolete in the blink of an eye. Thanks to the modular build and Service Level Agreement included with the T650P, new innovations can be added. When a new technology hits the market, the 3D printer can be upgraded to the latest standard.
Tractus3D CTO Daniël van Mourik, “The next generation T650P 3D printer is a great addition to the Tractus3D product range. We always focus on developing 3D printers which are truly different compared to others in the industry. We are accomplishing this on one hand with our big size 3D printers, on the other hand we are doing the same thing with the high performance PEEK printer, setting a new standard.”
3D printing with high temperature materials like PEEK
High temperature print materials will play a big part in future developments in the medical, automotive and aerospace industry. PEEK is highly heat resistant and chemical resistant as well. 3D printing thermoplastics is useful for making produced parts lighter and generating less waste compared to other production or prototyping methods. Thermoplastic materials can be melted, cured (cooled down such that they become solid), melted again, cured again, and so forth. Therefore manufacturing waste can be reused (thus preventing it from becoming “waste” in the first place).
NEW!!! Carbon PEEK
New on the market is Carbon PEEK filament. Carbon PEEK gives better mechanical qualities to parts than any other existing 3D printing material. The combination of the high-performance polymer PEEK and Carbon fiber means that this is the strongest polymer 3D printing material which can be 3D printed today. With excellent mechanical properties, resistance to thermal degradation and excellent strength this is ideal material for use by UAVs, space, commercial aviation and industry.
