What is rapid prototyping?

This refers to manufacturing methods that describe modern prototype construction. With rapid prototyping, the aim is to make sample components as quickly as possible with the help of digital design data. In addition to additive manufacturing, subtractive manufacturing methods such as turning, milling and drilling are also covered by the term 'rapid prototyping'. For speedy and economically efficient product development, additive manufacturing by means of FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) or SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) is especially suitable.

What is rapid tooling?

The fast manufacture of moulds and tools for prototype construction is also referred to as rapid tooling. Both additive and subtractive manufacturing methods are suitable for this. Additive manufacturing makes it possible to print plastic and aluminium tools and moulds using SLS method as the preferred method, depending on the quantity and the material to be processed.

Our manufacturing service for your special components

Sometimes our customers need customised parts and individual service. This has been an important part of igus® support for many years.  
With speedigus®, we combine the manufacture of customised parts with speed, while utilising the benefits of our high-performance plastics, which have been tribologically optimised, i.e. are better able to cope with friction and are less subject to wear.
For all manufacturing methods, we make customers a promise: We will answer all enquiries promptly within 24 hrs and deliver the product as quickly as possible.
