Use in motorsport
When compared to a conventional solution, 3D printing was found to involve less work and to produce a more lightweight part.
Wearing parts with considerably improved wear resistance compared to standard 3D printing materials are manufactured using special filaments and SLS powder from igus®. Further benefits at a glance:
Similar wear-resistant properties to classic injection moulded parts made of iglidur®
More than 30 years experience in the development of high-performance plastics for moving applications
Tested in the company's own laboratory
3D printing service - simple, fast & in as little as 24 hours
