We produce injection moulded and machined components according to your specification from our high-performance plastic rod and sheets. Manufactured components or prototypes are produced according to your specifications for small to high volume batches. Our plastic materials are in the form of plastic rods, hollow rods or sheets and consists of iglidur® high-performance polymers, the production of profiles is also possible. What is special about iglidur® polymers is that they are especially wear-resistant and are maintenance-free.

The production process starts as soon as your order is received.
We make everything ready to ship and deliver your desired component as quickly as possible.
We offer you more than 50 tribologically optimised materials for innumerable applications in which
wear-resistance is a necessity. Irrespective of whether your application is exposed to high temperatures,
contact with media or wear-intensive conditions – igus® almost always offers a solution.
iglidur® plastic rod is used to manufacture a microscope arm for eye examinations. The reason: it can be machined to produce customised plain bearings down to sizes measured in μm to ensure the necessary precision for examinations.
The "IceMole" is a melting probe, with which the polar regions, glaciers and as a long-term objective extraterrestrial regions are to be explored. For storing the ice screw, a component was needed that is water- and dirt-resistant and thermally insulated. Therefore, a bearing is used that was made of iglidur® A180 plastic rod.
This prosthesis is an electrically powered finger. The joint at the base of the finger is moved directly via a gear motor, which carries along the middle joint via a flexible connection. All axes involved in this movement are mounted through plastic sockets made of iglidur® J
. Altogether, eight bearings are integrated in one finger.
Fast availability at a low price and use under hygienic conditions were important prerequisites for this 3D-printed gripper. It is used to package cosmetic products and has the special advantage of working without additional lubrication, hence fulfilling hygienic requirements.
In the case of the agricultural machine construction industry, hay rakes are subjected to continuous stress in rough conditions. No problem for iglidur special parts, however: not only are they particularly wear-resistant, they are also maintenance-free and reduce assembly costs.
What do you do when an important replacement part for an exhibit suddenly goes missing on the way to the trade fair? The response of the Berlin-based company Blackcam, a manufacturer of camera motion systems, is to turn to the igus 3D printing service.
In a tyre soaping station, metal bearings were used up to now, which regularly led to a breakdown of the system. Now, these bearings have been replaced with plastic bearings made of igus® plastic rod. This saves costs of several thousand Euro per year.
