3D-printed grippers made of our self-lubricating, maintenance-free, high-performance polymers are up to 50 times more wear resistant than traditional 3D-printing materials. That’s because we extensively test our engineered composite plastic iglide® printing materials inside our 41,000-square-foot test lab to ensure every 3D-printed part offers exceptional wear rates that are comparable to injection-molded components. Our iglide® grippers are up to 7 times lighter than conventional metal grippers and reduce costs by up to 85%.
Use our online 3D-printing service to easily upload and order your gripper’s CAD file. Choose which iglide® material meets your requirements and check your component for any weak points with our wall thickness analysis.
igus® engineers continuously test the tribological properties of our iglide® materials inside our 41,000-square-foot test lab to ensure each 3D-printed component offers a longer service life than standard materials inside moving applications.
