Self-lubricating and maintenance-free products used for 3D printer construction

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 insure better 3D printing and lower 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 insure efficient and precise adjustment of the print bed.  In addition, igus® energy supply chains increase machine operating times, making corkscrews and general cable failures a thing of the past. Extremely constricted installation spaces, very small bend radii, short assembly times are all benefits of our products, which have no minimum order quantity.

Benefits of igus parts for 3D printers:
  • Self-lubricating and maintenance-free
  • Silent operation and smooth sliding
  • Long service life guaranteed
  • Corrosion and dirt resistant
  • A wide array of variants and material types

Application Examples

Our laser sintering material and Tribo-filament are rigorously tested

For prototypes or small series, extremely abrasion-resistant and wear-resistant tribo plastics are used for additive production.  Along with the laser-sintering (SLS) method or  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.
Laser sintering test

Test: Abrasion resistance of the laser sintering material

Tribo-Filament test

Test: Wear resistance of the Tribo-Filament
