3D printing with abrasion-resistant polymers


Our 3D-printing service uses powders and filaments that have been proven to last up to 50 times longer than standard 3D printing materials inside moving applications. We extensively test our engineered composite plastic iglidur® materials to ensure every 3D-printed wear part or component offers exceptional wear resistance. All igus® 3D printed wear parts are low-friction, maintenance-free and self-lubricating. We produce 3D-printed components for prototypes and small batches, no minimum order quantity required!

Frequently asked questions

​​​​On which 3D printers can the iglidur laser sintering powders be processed?

igus® uses the EOS Formiga P110. In principle, the tribo-materials iglidur® I3-PL and iglidur® I6-PL should be able to be processed on laser sintering 3D printers with CO2 lasers, if the printing parameters can be adjusted. Due to the different absorption of the laser energy, it is not suitable for low-cost systems such as Sinterit Lisa or Formlabs Fuse 1. The iglidur® I8-ESD-PL is suitable for this due to its black colour. 

​​​​Which iglidur laser sintering material is best suited for gears?

iglidur® I3 has the longest service life of all igus® 3D printing materials in tests with spur gears. For worm gears, iglidur® I6 is better suited due to the sliding relative movement between the counter partners. 

​​​​Which filament 3D printer does igus® recommend?

Due to the large number of systems available on the market, no clear recommendation can be made. Basically, the printer should have a sufficiently large and closed installation space as well as a heated print bed. In addition, a print head with two nozzles, or two independent print heads that can heat up to 300°C, is recommended. The device should also be freely configurable, i.e. the processing parameters should be adjustable and it should be possible to process filaments from third-party manufacturers.  You should be able to process our filaments on most common printers without any problems.
