But what’s PEEK? This semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymer, that guarantees extreme performances, combines great mechanical properties with an excellent thermal and chemical resistance.
PEEK, that is printed with Roboze FFF 3D technology, even if it guarantees the same great mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance of the components realized with conventional technologies, offers incredible advantages in terms of processing time and production costs.
In this new editorial blog by Roboze, our experts will talk about two methods of PEEK Post Processing, so everything it is possible to do with 3D printed finished parts in PEEK during the post-processing phase:
- Mechanical Post Processing: PEEK processing on the lathe, with the aim of highlighting its workability thanks to its mechanical and thermal properties.
- Thermal Post Processing: a process that will allow to show the effects on PEEK of the annaeling, used on semi-crystalline materials to optimize the crystallinity and remove residual stress.
In the next articles about PEEK POST PROCESSING we’ll get deeper into each aspect of the processing of the PEEK 3D printed parts, including the possibility to post-process them with both mechanical and thermal methods.
