Other manufacturing methods for your individual components

Components are 3D-printed with the laser sintering method.  
3D-printing

We 3D print your individual component using self-lubricating and abrasion-resistant iglide® plastics. Simply fill in the inquiry form, attach a data file (CAD, STEP) and submit. You will then be advised by our experts.

Best suited for quantities of: 1 to 1000

Turning a component made of iglidur® high-performance polymers  
Turned or milled components from bar stock

Your high-performance plastic component can be machined from bar stock. Based on your data files, we will quote a price and, upon request, make the part.

Best suited for quantities of: 1 to 500

3D-printed injection moulding tool with manufactured component inside it  
Components made with a 3D-printed injection mold

We can injection-mold your individual component, using high-performance plastics, in our 3D printer. This method saves time and up to 80% of costs. The mold materials are able to withstand the high temperatures of the injection molding process, meaning up to 500 parts can be made from a single mold.

Best suited for quantities of: 1 to 500

Injection moulding tool made of aluminium with manufactured component inside it  
Injection-molded components made with aluminum tools

Individual components can be injection-molded with aluminum tools, which is very time-saving due to its lean manufacturing method, even for complex assembles. The tooling costs are also very low. Simply submit a 3D model and receive a quote immediately.

Best suited for quantities of: 200 to 10,000
