iglidur® 3D printing service: Ordering online – now with price calculation

3D printing service: order online, install and use

3D printing service  

We print your customised component from lubrication and wear-resistant iglidur® plastics; you can quickly install and use it. It’s very simple: whether prototypes or plain bearing custom parts – with the additive production technology, the design freedom is almost endless. Even complex shapes can be generated at a low cost by working with two different plastics: either the support material disintegrates or the component is created from the conventional ABS print material and the glide surfaces from our abrasion-resistant iglidur® high-performance polymers.
Upload your 3D data, check the 3D view and the measurement units, and select your Tribo-Filament. Depending on its complexity, we will then deliver your product in as little as 24 hours.

Select Tribo-Filament and indicate the quantity, then go to the shopping-basket and confirm the selection. Done! Your required component will be manufactured in the igus® copy shop and sent to you.

You can choose between four different iglidur® tribo filaments

iglidur® J260  
iglidur® I180-PF  
iglidur® I170-PF  

iglidur® J260-PF

Available in yellow

Greater chemical resistance and higher upper application temperature, one material from the prototype to series production

iglidur® I180-PF

Available in white and black

Excellent wear and abrasion properties, high strength and elongation at break

iglidur® I170-PF

Available in yellow

Even better wear resistance, higher workmanship standards demanded

More motion plastics® for 3D printing

3D printed Tribo filaments

3D printed Tribo filaments  
Made for motion

Our tribologically optimised filaments are up to 50 times more abrasion-resistant than standard 3D print materials. This results in higher levels of effectiveness. So you can produce prototypes and small series more quickly and cost effectively. Printed components can also quickly replace wear parts and reduce downtime periods.

3D printing material for laser sinters

3D printing material for laser sinters  
Tribo plastic for the laser sinter process

The material iglidur® I3-PL, specially developed for laser sintering, proved to have an abrasion resistance at least 3 times greater than conventional materials for laser sintering during tribologic tests in the igus® test laboratory.

Lubrication-free bearing solutions and printing

We have compiled the most suitable and popular products for you from our diverse kits: linear guide systems and energy supply systems with low installation heights, the smallest sizes and the narrowest bending radii. Our lubrication and maintenance free 3D printing components allow you to improve your 3D technology while also reducing costs.

Laboratory test  

Test laboratory - quality from igus®

Quality from the igus® experimental laboratory:

Applications involving high cycle counts, speeds and accelerations or demanding environmental conditions require proven systems providing durable and reliable operation, especially when it comes to energy chains, cables as well as polymer slide bearings and linear systems. igus® conducts tests continuously in the in-house laboratory under real conditions. Every year, we conduct more than 2000 tests on e-chains® and cables, and over 5000 tests on slide bearings . The focus of our tests are tensile strengths and shear forces. Coefficients of friction, wear, driving forces and abrasion under extremely different conditions and speeds. Influencing factors such a dirt, weather, low temperatures or impacts and shocks are tested for.
