3D printing is a cost-effective alternative to injection molding for producing complex parts for prototypes, single orders or small quantities. igus® prints components using our engineered composite plastic iglide® printing materials, which have been proven to last up to 50 times longer than standard 3D-printing materials inside moving applications. We extensively test our high-performance polymers inside our 41,000-square-foot test lab to ensure every 3D-printed part offers exceptional wear resistance comparable to injection-molded components. All igus® 3D-printed parts are low-friction, maintenance-free and self-lubricating.
Whether you need a prototype or functional component, our individual 3D printing service is a fast and cost-effective way to print gears, racks, plain bearings, rollers, linear bearings, lead screw nuts and more from our low-friction, high-performance iglide® polymers.
Do you need a component that meets specific requirements, such as FDA compliance or use underwater? Then 3D-printed iglide® injection molds are the solution for you! Our 3D-printed injection molding tools can produce parts from more than 50 iglide® polymers for prototypes and small batches in 3 to 10 business days.
We continuously test the tribological properties of our iglide® materials inside our 41,000-square-foot test lab to ensure each 3D-printed component offers a longer service life than standard materials inside moving applications.
