3D printing service and parts for News 2021

Multi-material 3D printing

3D printing with up to four plastics

With multi-material printing, slide and wear-optimised 3D printing materials are combined with up to three other materials within a component. This allows a wide variety of material properties to be combined in a single part.

Abrasion-resistant components, up to 3m in size, from the 3D printer

Large-format 3D printing using iglidur I150 and iglidur I151

iglidur I150 and I151, which are especially wear-resistant, make it easy to use large-format components in large-scale mechanical engineering.  Additive manufacturing can reduce material usage and costs by up to 80%.

Food compatible by means of laser sintering

Greater strength, better surface and lower component price

The laser sintering material iglidur I6 is the third wear-resistant, 3D printing plastic that has been tested for contact with food and has been approved in accordance with the requirements of FDA as well as EU 10/2011. Special parts, prototypes and series for applications in the food and beverage industry can now be made in quantities of 1 to 10,000 in only 3 days.
Thanks to the incorporated solid lubricants, lubrication of the moving parts is not necessary and the special combination of materials reduces abrasion by a factor of up to 50. 

Food-safe 3D printing

Chemical-resistant, food-compatible special parts printed in five days

New chemical-resistant laser sintering material: iglidur I10

iglidur I10, the new laser sintering material, is ideal for applications in the food and electroplating industries because of its very high chemical resistance.

Beta test phase commencement: contact us if you would like to test individual 3D printed chemical-resistant components.

iglidur I151 filament

All-rounder filament for food contact applications

The abrasion-resistant iglidur I151 filament can be used on any 3D printer, complies with EU 10/2011 and FDA food requirements, and is ideal for applications in the food and packaging industry.

To the product

3D printed igumid P150: extremely rigid and strong

Rigid multi-material partner for iglidur I150 and for structural parts

The new fibre-reinforced 3D printing filament igumid P150, has been specially developed as a partner material for iglidur I150, for the manufacture of especially strong and simultaneously low-friction components produced with the multi-material printing process. Thanks to its great strength and rigidity, igumid P150 can be used to print stable structural parts and for lightweight construction with little need for material.

3D isense: 3D printed wear-resistant parts with sensors

Fast manufacture of intelligent special parts for predictive maintenance

The components made with the multi-material printing process enable predictive maintenance for quickly manufactured special parts so that machine downtime and maintenance work can be reduced sustainably. Due to the sensor layer, the intelligent 3D isense components issue a warning before the wear limit is reached or if overloading occurs.
