3D printed gears made of iglidur high-performance polymers

► Predictable service life
► Any geometry possible: special shapes and replacement parts
► Optimised tooth root geometry for longer service life
► Self-lubricating: dry running thanks to solid lubricants
Last up to five times longer than regular plastic gears
Tested and proven: gears made of iglidur have a considerably longer service life than machined or injection-moulded gears made of conventional plastics.

What material is better for which type of gear? 

  • iglidur i3  is characterised by higher strength, is especially well-suited for spur gears and helical-bevel gears, and can be used  for all other kinds of gears.
  • iglidur i6  has optimised sliding properties and is therefore ideal for worm gears or other gears where conformity with food standards is required.
  • iglidur i8-ESD is suitable for gears where ESD properties are necessary, e.g. for ATEX.
