Production at igus® with the desired manufacturing method starts as soon as your order is received.
This refers to manufacturing methods that describe modern prototype construction. With rapid prototyping, the aim is to make sample components as quickly as possible with the help of digital design data. In addition to additive manufacturing, subtractive manufacturing methods such as turning, milling and drilling are also covered by the term 'rapid prototyping'. For speedy and economically efficient product development, additive manufacturing by means of FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) or SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) is especially suitable.
The fast manufacture of moulds and tools for prototype construction is also referred to as rapid tooling. Both additive and subtractive manufacturing methods are suitable for this. Additive manufacturing makes it possible to print plastic and aluminium tools and moulds using SLS method as the preferred method, depending on the quantity and the material to be processed.
Sometimes our customers need customised parts and individual service. This has been an important part of igus® support for many years.
With speedigus®, we combine the manufacture of customised parts with speed, while utilising the benefits of our high-performance plastics, which have been tribologically optimised, i.e. are better able to cope with friction and are less subject to wear.
For all manufacturing methods, we make customers a promise: We will answer all enquiries promptly within 24 hrs and deliver the product as quickly as possible.

Fast availability at a low price and use under hygienic conditions were important prerequisites for this 3D-printed gripper. It is used to package cosmetic products and has the special advantage of working without additional lubrication, hence fulfilling hygienic requirements.
iglidur® bar stock is used to manufacture a microscope arm for eye examinations. The reason: it can be machined to produce customised plain bearings down to sizes measured in μm to ensure the necessary precision for examinations.
In the case of the agricultural machine construction industry, hay rakes are subjected to continuous stress in rough conditions. No problem for igus® special parts, however: not only are they particularly wear-resistant, they are also maintenance-free and reduce assembly costs.
The "IceMole" is a melting probe, with which the polar regions, glaciers and as a long-term objective extraterrestrial regions are to be explored. For storing the ice screw, a component was needed that is water- and dirt-resistant and thermally insulated. Therefore, a bearing is used that was made of iglidur® A180 bar stock.
What do you do when an important replacement part for an exhibit suddenly goes missing on the way to the trade fair? The response of the Berlin-based company Blackcam, a manufacturer of camera motion systems, is to turn to the igus 3D printing service.
This prosthesis is an electrically powered finger. The joint at the base of the finger is moved directly via a gear motor, which carries along the middle joint via a flexible connection. All axes involved in this movement are mounted through plastic sockets made of the material iglidur® J. Altogether, eight bearings are integrated in one finger.
Easelink, a company from Graz, has developed "Matrix Charging", a charging system consisting of two components. A charging pad connected to the mains is installed in the car park. A connector on the bottom of the e-car drops down when parked over the pad. The charging process starts automatically, without the driver having to connect a cable. Use the igus® 3D printing service to make sure the development of prototypes remains cost-effective while ensuring high quality.
In a tyre soaping station, metal bearings were used up to now, which regularly led to a breakdown of the system. Now, these bearings have been replaced with plastic bearings made of igus® bar stocks . This saves costs of several thousand Euro per year.
Inspired by the Formula 1, the student teams of the "Formula Student Germany" construction competition compete with each other. For constructing their racing cars, the Formula Student Team from Weingarten near Ravensburg needed customised plastic pinions, among other things. With the 3D print service by igus®, these components were not only produced quickly, but also made of wear-resistant iglidur® material.
