motion? plastics! – Our drive? Plastic! motion? plastics! Tribologically optimised machine parts made of plastic for all kinds of movements. Our slogan can be translated thus. We have been pursuing this idea passionately for more than 50 years. Plastic is light, robust, cost-effective and has low friction. Maintenance? Equal to zero, because our products are without any additional lubrication, show little wear and hardly cause downtimes. We make precise service life prediction with our online tools - simply enter the technical data of your particular application. The 1965 idea: "Show me the...

Components made of igus® tribo-filament are up to 50 times more wear-resistant than standard materials for 3D printing and therefore have an extremely long service life. Due to their excellent tribological properties, they are suited for 3D printing of replacement parts for e.g. bearings, drive nuts, gears and other parts. The igus® Tribo-Filaments can be processed on 3D printers that are based on the fused-depo- Material: iglidur ® J260-PF Extremely long service life and excellent coefficients of friction ●● Outstanding abrasion resistance of tribo filaments ●● pplication temperature from...

The right iglidur filament for your application Processing instructions iglidur® tribo-filaments can be processed on any 3D printer that is equipped with a heated print bed on which temperatures are adjustable. The igus® adhesive film allows a good adhesion between the iglidur® tribo-filament and the print bed. Further recommended printing surfaces are "Buildtak" or "Blue-Tape" with glue applied "Pritt Power" stick. ●● ood ventilation should be provided during processing G ●● When heated above +300 °C, hazardous fumes are produced Example Part No. tribo-filaments I150-PF-0175-0250 for 250 g...

Tested! The material iglidur ® I3, specially developed for laser sintering, proved to have an abrasion resistance at least three times higher than conventional materials for laser sintering during tribological tests in the igus® test laboratory. This means the degree of design freedom for wear-resistant parts has been further increased. ●● ●● ●● ●● ●● Wear-resistant Good mechanical properties Detail accuracy with exact surfaces Can be processed using the standard parameter set Refresh rate: 75% wear rate [µm/km] In this wear test, the abrasion resistance of iglidur ® I3 is higher than that...

Tribo sensation: iglidur ® J260-PF filament 3D print filament impresses during tests with injection moulding quality Our iglidur ® J260 tribo-filament is more wear-resistant than standard print material Our series of tests show: printed plain bearings from our latest filament iglidur® J260 are equally as wear-resistant as our injection-moulded parts from the same material. The tests have also proven that iglidur® 3D print filaments have considerably lower coefficients of friction and are up to 50 times more abrasion-resistant than conventional 3D printing materials. This makes iglidur®...

With the new gear configurator from igus®, gears can now be configured online in just one minute and ordered immediately in the igus® web shop. In the igus® 3D printing service, the gears, consisting of iglidur ® I6, are printed with the SLS method. The high-performance plastic specifically developed for gears is characterised by high wear resistance and, when tested, beats machined gears made of common materials such as POM and PBT. Making gears without special equipment is almost impossible due to the complex involute toothing. In order to facilitate the work of designers, igus® has now...
