Custom Injection Molding According to Your Exact Requirements

igus® is a leading provider of injection-molded technology. Customized components are developed from wear-resistant and maintenance-free iglide® high-performance plastics. Each material is engineered to meet the specific needs of your application, such as resistance to chemicals, extreme temperatures or dirt.

What is the advantage of 3D-printed injection molding tools?Injection molds are mostly made of steel and only pay for themselves in the case of larger component quantities. igus® offers an alternative in the form of 3D-printed injection molding tools with which you save up to 80% of costs even in the case of small quantities (1 - 500).

What is the advantage of injection molding tools made of aluminum?  For component batches of between 200 and 10,000, aluminum tools can be used to make them. This lean manufacturing method saves time and money as a lengthy hardening process is not necessary.  In the case of both methods, your components are made of iglide® high-performance polymers that are suitable e.g. for high-temperature or heavy-duty applications. In addition, both methods are suitable for the . Which method is more suitable for your prototypes depends on the quantity.
