NEW: service life calculation for individual components

At igus, service life calculators have been successfully used for plain bearing applications for more than 25 years. The new service life calculation in the 3D printing service tool "iglidur Designer", allows you to determine the service life of individually shaped components for the first time. Simply select the sliding surface by clicking on it and enter your application parameters to immediately obtain a service life estimate. The data of the service life calculator are based on the results of 11,000 abrasion tests per year at 450 test points in the igus test laboratory. This means that users can now get all the information they need regarding price, manufacturability and delivery time, material properties, finishing and expected service life of their individual 3D printing component easily in one tool.

Service life calculator for polymer gears

This free online tool enables you to calculate the gear's service life by simply entering the gear dimensions and application parameters. Take part in an online workshop with Dipl. Ing. Tom Krause to find out more about using the gear service life calculator to determine the ideal design for a durable gear.
