Fast availability at a low price and use under hygienic conditions were important prerequisites for this 3D printed gripper. It is used to package cosmetic products and has the special advantage of working without additional lubrication, fulfilling hygienic requirements.
Ultimaker is pleased to announce that igus® materials are now available in the Ultimaker Marketplace. iglidur® I150 and iglidur® I180 allow a variety of industrial applications and fill the demand for 3D printed parts with low friction and great abrasion resistance. Lubrication-free bearings, clamping devices, and complex wear-resistant parts are just a few applications that can be printed with these two filaments. The Ultimaker S3 and Ultimaker S5 3D printers and the award-winning Ultimaker Cura software are just what you need to print a large number of high-performance applications.

Our individual requirements have been implemented perfectly and our new accelerator ring for sporty, flat steering wheels works smoothly thanks to the low-friction polymer parts from 3D printing. We are pleased with the very fast and solution-oriented cooperation.
The plain bearings made of the proven iglidur materials, which are supplied from the igus 3D printing service, allow us to design completely new solutions for various applications in our cutting and winding machines due to the individual geometrical designs. The printed components are now also used in batch-produced components. New developments can also be quickly implemented and tested thanks to the test samples that are usually provided at very short notice.

Easelink, a company from Graz, has developed "Matrix Charging", a charging system consisting of two components. A charging pad connected to the mains is installed in the car park. A connector on the bottom of the e-car drops down when parked over the pad. The charging process starts automatically, without the driver having to connect a cable. Use the igus® 3D printing service to make sure the development of prototypes remains cost-effective while ensuring high quality.
Inspired by Formula 1, the student teams of the "Formula Student Germany" construction competition compete with each other. For constructing their racing cars, the Formula Student Team from Weingarten near Ravensburg needed customised plastic pinions, among other things. Using the igus 3D printing service , these components were not only produced quickly, but also made of wear-resistant iglidur material.
Wear-resistant parts made of durable iglidur polymers for classic vehicles. Whether a car, tractor, motorcycle or plane: 3D printing tremendously simplifies the procurement of spare parts and usually even delivers better quality and durability than original parts.
3D printed components are used for prototypes, replacement parts and series in a wide variety of industries. From grand pianos to vehicles to aerospace applications – there is something for everyone. In addition to individual dimensions and special shapes for components such as gears, plain bearings and grippers, components made of iglidur materials are constructed and used for numerous individual applications.
Practical tips on designing function parts for manufacturing in 3D printing service. In addition to material and manufacturing method, the right component design plays a decisive role in increasing service life, minimising wear, and optimising the coefficient of friction.
