Luvocom 3F PEKK 50082 Filament is now available

Posted by on

We proudly present Luvocom® 3F PEKK 50082 Filament, our newest member of the 3D4Makers filament family, and you can have all the advantages of its unique standard in quality.   Luvocom® 3F PEKK 50082 is engineered to outperform the standard PEKK materials available in the market. It comes with enhanced flow behaviour which improves the printability and layer adhesion. This unique modified neat PEKK provides dimensional stability and is printable in non-heated chambers, delivering semi-crystalline parts with no warp similar to our Luvocom 3F PEEK 9581 Filament. Following our nature as filament engineers we joined forces with our compounding partner Lehmann & Voss...

3D4Makers changes name PEEKQ to LUVOCOM® 3F PEEK 9581

Posted by on

3D4Makers is proud to announce the new name of PEEKQ, LUVOCOM® 3F PEEK 9581. This grade of PEEK that has been developed specifically for industrial Fused Deposition Modeling 3D printing.    Better flow makes LUVOCOM® 3F PEEK 9581 an easier to print faster to print PEEK material on most High-Temperature FDM Printers.  This grade of PEEK has been improved with better printability than other PAEKs. This means that for researchers and industrials working with this high-performance material, it will be easier to get results with this PEEK than with other PEEK materials.    LUVOCOM® 3F PEEK 9581 will be easier to dial in on...

High Temperature FDM 3D Printing for PEI, PEEK and other High Performance Polymers What You Need to Know

Posted by on

Desktop 3D printers are mainly consumer or entry-level enterprise machines. They are usually made for prototyping and deskside use. Industrial 3D printers (Additive Manufacturing Machines) are used for manufacturing, usually in industrial settings. In Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM, also called FFF) a new category of high-temperature 3D printers is emerging which is fusing these formerly disparate groups of systems. These are high-temperature 3D Printers which are capable of manufacturing in high-performance engineering plastics such as PEEK and PEI.   What is a high-temperature 3D printer?  This category of machines is very new. There are many more people saying that they have a...
