igus with a selection of four tribological filaments and the 3D print service, offers customers the possibility to print maintenance and lubrication-free special parts and small series. For the company, Additive Manufacturing is one more step to give the design engineer the greatest possible freedom in construction with lubricant- and maintenance-free plastics. The company has already introduced the world's first tribological filament for 3D printers last year, and has now expanded the series to a total of four materials. Since the Hannover Messe, it has also offered a 3D print service. Customers can turn to igus with their 3D data and have their parts printed quickly and without complications. Delivery times for printed parts depend primarily on the complexity of the components; still, here too the goal is delivery within 24 hours. With high-performance plastics and additive manufacturing, two modern technologies which combined promise maximum freedom in construction and high abrasion resistance meet.
