Our 3D-printed gears are made of low-friction, maintenance-free, self-lubricating plastic printing materials that have been engineered to last up to 50 times longer than standard 3D-printing materials inside moving applications. We extensively test our iglide® polymers inside our 41,000ft.2 test laboratory to ensure every 3D-printed part offers exceptional wear resistance comparable to injection-molded components. All gear types can be customized to meet your requirements, including weight, tooth shape, and transmission ratio, and can be printed with a wall thickness of 0.5mm or more.
Our service life calculator allows you to optimize the size, number of teeth or teeth module of your gear to improve its durability.
Use our online gear shop to print gears, spur gears, bevel gears, sprockets and worm gears made of our low-friction, self-lubricating, maintenance-free iglide® polymers. iglide® lasts 50 times longer inside moving applications than standard 3D-printing materials.
We continuously test the tribological properties of our iglide® materials inside our 41,000-square-foot test lab.
