3D printer construction: Lubrication- and maintenance-free products for 3D printers

Components or ready-to-install system solutions – suitable for all installation areas

Lubrication- and maintenance-free technologies and components from igus® are already playing a central role in most assembly kits and blueprints for 3D printers. Tribologically optimised high-performance plastics ensure better 3D printing and lower the costs. With its modular motion plastics® system, igus® enables maximum design freedom for individual applications in the area of 3D printing: drylin® linear bearings are almost noiseless as no metal bearings are used and dryspin® lead screw nuts ensure efficient and precise adjustment of the print bed. In addition, energy supply chains from igus® increase machine operating times, as a result of which corkscrews and general cable failures are a thing of the past. Extremely constricted installation spaces, very small bend radii, short assembly times – Profit from our wide range of products with no minimum order quantity.

3D printers  

Application examples of our customers

Canal house  
Varied and practical

3D printing and house construction? Do they go together? The example of the Netherlands "Europe Building" in Amsterdam's marine quarter shows that it works. drylin® E gantry robots and the engineering expertise of igus® made it possible.

EVO-tech GmbH  
Low-noise, lubrication-free and maintenance-free

This 3D printer from EVO-tech GmbH uses a ready-to-install system solution from the motion plastics® specialist igus®. In addition to drylin® linear technology, e-chains® and chainflex® cables are used.

Cobot 3D printer  
Cost-effective and high-quality

The 3D printer from Cobot stands out due to its innovative design as well as its large installation space. Inside the printer, drylin® linear technology from igus® ensures completely lubrication-free and maintenance-free operation.

3D printer from Kühling&Kühling  
Cost-effective with outstanding running performance

Kühling&Kühling GbR was looking for special products for a 3D printer that were to offer freedom from lubrication, outstanding robustness and good temperature resistance. The drylin® range of products make it possible.

Tested for abrasion resistance of the laser sintering material and wear resistance of the Tribo-Filament.

For prototypes or small series, extremely abrasion-resistant and wear-resistant Tribo plastics for additive production with the laser-sintering (SLS) method or with the help of filaments (FDM/FFF) make it possible to directly use the printed bearing or test the functioning of the printed bearing reliably and conclusively. In our own igus® test laboratory, the Tribo-optimised materials are tested for resistance to wear and abrasion and compared with conventional materials.
