Self-lubricating and maintenance-free technologies and components from igus® are already playing a central role in most assembly kits and blueprints for 3D printers. Tribologically optimized high-performance plastics ensure better 3D printing and lower the costs. With its modular motion plastics® system, igus® enables maximum design freedom for individual applications in the area of 3D printing: drylin® linear bearings are almost noiseless as no metal bearings are used and dryspin® lead screw nuts ensure efficient and precise adjustment of the print bed. In addition, energy supply chains from igus® increase machine operating times, as a result of which corkscrews and general cable failures are a thing of the past. Extremely constricted installation spaces, very small bend radii, short assembly times – Profit from our wide range of products with no minimum order quantity.

3D printing and house construction? Do they go together? The example of the Netherlands "Europe Building" in Amsterdam's marine quarter shows that it works. drylin® E gantry robots and the engineering expertise of igus® made it possible.
This 3D printer from EVO-tech GmbH uses a ready-to-install system solution from the motion plastics® specialist igus®. In addition to drylin® linear technology, e-chains® and chainflex® cables are used.
The 3D printer from Cobot stands out due to its innovative design as well as its large installation space. Inside the printer, drylin® linear technology from igus® ensures completely self-lubricating and maintenance-free operation.
For prototypes or small series, extremely abrasion-resistant and wear-resistant Tribo plastics for additive production with the laser-sintering (SLS) method or with the help of filaments (FDM/FFF) make it possible to directly use the printed bearing or test the functioning of the printed bearing reliably and conclusively. In our own igus® test laboratory, the Tribo-optimized materials are tested for resistance to wear and abrasion and compared with conventional materials.
