Our 3D-printing service uses powders and filaments that have been proven to last up to 50 times longer than standard 3D printing materials inside moving applications. We extensively test our engineered composite plastic iglidur® materials to ensure every 3D-printed wear part or component offers exceptional wear resistance. All igus® 3D printed wear parts are low-friction, maintenance-free and self-lubricating. We produce 3D-printed components for prototypes and small batches, no minimum order quantity required!Would you like more information about the our 3D printing or do you need an individual consultation? Our experts will be happy to get in touch with you.
3d printing is a form of manufacturing where by a physical object is produced from a three dimensional digital model. The process includes thin layers of the material being laid ontop of each other in sucession, therefore creating a part. It is known as additive manufacturing and is commonly used for creating quick protoypes.
There are a number of materials that can be used in 3d printing such as resins, powders and plastic. At igus®, we use all 3 of these common materials and have a range of options for all 3 variations.
Parts are produced by material being layered in a computerised design. The layers form the 3d printed part. There are a number of variations of methods of 3d printing such as Selective laser sintering, fused deposition modelling and multi-material 3d printing
