X400 vs Tractus3D T850P Printer Comparison
The Tractus3D T850P is a high-temperature Delta-based printer. While the speed capabilities of a Delta are impressive, printing high-temperature materials such as PEEK and ULTEM is not viable at these speeds. PEEK and Ultem require slower printing for maximum layer bonding, or you could risk producing a sub-optimal part.
With a low chamber temperature of 80C, maintaining an adequate ambient temperature required for high-temperature materials beyond 80-100mm could prove very challenging. The 3D Labs X400 chamber at 95C will allow for additional capabilities with these materials at the price point.
The Tractus offers a respectable bed temperature of 175C. However, the X400's 220C bed still dwarfs the competition. The additional bed heat achieved on the X400 will allow the printing of more extensive, flatter parts with minimal warping.
At nearly half the cost of the Tractus3D's $15,000 price tag, the 3D Labs X400 delivers a more cost-effective solution for your business.Note: All images, logos, trademarks and any other information on this page are the property of their respective owners and are used solely for identification purposes on this page.
