5 Tips for Successful PEEK Printing

Because of its unique qualities PEEK is widely used and highly desired in many industries such as medicine, aerospace, oil and gas industry and automotive. It is really successful in small-lot production as well as specialist designs and prototypes where metal processing is exceptionally difficult or even impossible. The filament, however is not easy to handle in a printing process.

1. Control the temperature
It is very important to have adequate thermal management and control over the entire build chamber as PEEK does not react well under temperature fluctuations.
PEEK is high temperature printing material, therefore it can be printed at very high temperatures from 360°C to 450°even. Bear in mind that bed temperature should be 120°C at minimum.

2. Dry the material
It […]
