3D-printed special components according to your specifications

Are you looking for customised components or prototypes that are individually matched to your requirements? igus® makes these components for you, e.g. with the help of 3D printers and using the SLS method (Selective Laser Sintering). What is special about this: For 3D printing, iglidur® filaments are used that have been tribologically optimised and are therefore 50 times more wear-resistant than conventional 3D-printing filaments. Best suited for quantities of 1 to 500.
