The 3D HUB is 3D Printed Implants service provider in Bangladesh. They started offering 3D printed PEEK implants to patients in 2017.
The 3D HUB team is composed of several local neurosurgery professors and doctors with many years of clinical experience. Their joint venture shows their full confidence in the application of 3D printing technology in the medical field.
IEMAI and 3D HUB established a connection at the beginning of their research, and explored and tested whether 3D printed PEEK materials could be used in implantation schemes.

For skull repair, each patient needs a personalized patch. Using CT digital reconstruction and 3D printing technology, suitable implants can be quickly formulated to meet the needs of patients. PEEK material has excellent mechanical properties and biocompatibility, and its elastic modulus is very close to that of human skeleton. PEEK material is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material, which requires high temperature in the process of 3D printing. Therefore, the 3D HUB selects the IEMAI flagship high-temperature 3D printer MAGIC-HT-PRO.
The printing temperature of the MAGIC-HT-PRO can reach 500 ° C, the hot bed temperature can reach 200 ° C, and the chamber temperature can reach 120 ° C, which provides excellent temperature conditions for PEEK printing. The MAGIC-HT-PRO has a medium-large build volume of up to 310*310*410mm, dual printing head with independent lifting, filament absent warning, power failure recovery and automatic leveling, which provides functional guarantee for PEEK implant printing.
