3D printed bearings

Custom 3D-printed plain bearings from igus® are made from our high-performance polymers that have been proven to last up to 50 times longer than standard 3D-printing materials inside moving applications. We extensively test our engineered composite plastic iglide® materials inside our 41,000-square-foot test lab to ensure every 3D-printed part offers exceptional wear resistance comparable to injection-molded components. All igus® 3D printed parts are low-friction, maintenance-free and self-lubricating. Production of our 3D-printed plain bearings takes a maximum of 72 hours, and any special shape or size is possible. We produce 3D-printed components for prototypes and small batches, no minimum order quantity required!

Advantages of 3D-printed plain bearings

  • All special shapes and sizes possible
  • Produced within a maximum of 72 hours
  • Tribological properties comparable to injection-molded parts
  • Quantities of approximately 1 to 4,000 pieces
