igus® is an expert in the area of injection-moulding technology and combines it with its wear-resistant and maintenance-free iglidur® high-performance polymers. This means that a special material is selected for your components or prototype that is exactly matched to the conditions of your application. For example, resistant to chemicals and extreme temperatures, hygienic, impervious to dirt and dust.

The production process at igus® starts as soon as your order is received.
We make everything ready to ship and deliver your desired component as quickly as possible.
We offer you more than 50 tribologically optimised materials for innumerable applications
in which wear-resistance is a necessity. Irrespective of whether your application is exposed
to high temperatures, contact with media or wear-intensive conditions – igus® almost always
offers a solution.
Only materials and components that can be relied upon are used for prostheses. Especially for leg prostheses, it is important that the user can trust his prosthesis when he is running and standing with it. Therefore, Otto Bock SE & Co. KGaA, the world market leader in technical orthopaedics, has been relying on iglidur plain bearings made of high-performance polymers for more than 20 years.
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.
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, therefore 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.
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.
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.
