3D-printed special components according to your specifications

Are you looking for made-to-measure 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, iglide® materials are used that have been tribologically optimized and are therefore 50 times more wear-resistant than conventional 3D-printing materials.
