Wear-resistant 3D print materials

3D print materials for maximum service life in moving applications

Wearing parts with considerably improved wear resistance compared to standard 3D print materials are made with special filaments and SLS powder from igus®. Further benefits at a glance:
 

Adegree of wear resistance similar to classic injection moulding parts made of iglidur®

More than 30 years experience in the development of high-performance plastics for moving applications

Tested in the company's own laboratory

3D printing service - simple, fast & with full cost transparency, from 24 hours

 

Sensationally strong in the test compared to machined and injection-moulded parts

Up to 50x higher abrasion resistance

Test parameters
Wear test, swivelling

Surface pressure: 1 MPa

Surface speed: 0.01 m/s

Pivoting angle: 60°

Duration: 4 weeks

Shaft materials: Cf53 and 304 SS


Test result:
The pivot test shows that the abrasion resistance of the iglidur® filament is up to 50 times higher than the standard 3D print materials (e.g. ABS).

Selected application examples

Racing car  

Use in car racing

When compared to a conventional solution, 3D printing was found to involve less work and to produce a part that weighed less.

Custom-made bearing  

Special bearing

Thanks to the 3D print solution, the high igus® quality was maintained even for a special design.
