3D printed parts from igus® are made from stable and wear-resistant iglidur® high-performance plastics. They guarantee a long service life of the individual wear-resistant parts due to an exceptionally high degree of resistance to abrasion.
The range includes special filaments for 3D printing with the fused deposition modelling/fused filament fabrication method (FDM/FFF) and plastics for selective laser sintering, whereby a 3D printing service is also offered for prototypes, small batches or small quantities of complex machine components. Series up to a quantity of 1000 have already been printed.
The igus® 3D printing materials are especially advantageous in moving applications due to their abrasion resistance and durability with a tested service life.
Why iglidur® 3D printing materials?
High-performance plastics from the specialist
As a tribological specialist, igus® also researches in the 3D printing technology to provide maximum possibilities for the construction of moving applications with lubrication-free and maintenance-free plastics. 3D printing materials made from the high-performance plastic iglidur® are the result. Depending on the chosen material, it is even possible to use the same iglidur® material of the 3D-printed prototype for the component in serial production. Whether for prototypes or small batches – you can always rely on the tested service life of the igus® special plastics.
Predictable service life
With more than 135 trillion test movements annually, igus® tests iglidur® plastics in terms of wear, coefficient of friction and other relevant properties. It is thus possible to give precise forecasts on the service life of components in moving applications.
