speedigus® - Custom parts manufacturing services by igus®

What is speedigus®?

At igus, we have the aim of helping our customers reduce costs while bringing technical benefits to their products and machines. We call this "plastics for longer life."
Sometimes our customers require custom parts or services, and for many years this has been an important part of the igus® support
Now, with speedigus®, we combine custom parts with speed, using the benefits of igus® tribo-plastics.
speedigus® custom parts can be manufactured in three distinct ways:

Matthew Aldridge, igus® UK Managing Director, introduces the new speedigus® Service


This is where a 3D model from the customer is used to produce a fast aluminium injection mould tool, allowing real igus parts to be manufactured very quickly. The leadtime for this service varies from 24 hours to a maximum of three weeks.
Here igus® bar stocks are used for the manufacture of a custom part by means of a 2D drawing or a 3D model. The leadtime for this service varies from 3 days to a maximum of three weeks.
Here an igus® part is mounted in a custom-made housing, whereby the whole assembly is supplied as a complete part. The delivery time for this service varies from five days to three weeks.
All speedigus® options have the same promise: On time delivery and 24 hour response for all enquiries.
