Tribo Filament
Tribo Filament

The tribo specialist igus has been researching the 3D printer filament field to provide its customers with more flexibility. For instance, they can design custom parts or manufacture prototypes whilst simultaneously relying on the tested service life of igus materials. The product, which has been tested in the in-house lab, is the first filament for 3D printers specifically developed for motion control applications. Today, the company sells 45 different high-performance plastics as catalogue materials for iglidur plain bearings, with a further 100 custom materials suited to customer needs. Moving forward, the new filament gives customers more flexibility for the shape designs of their bearing locations, even prototypes can be produced relatively cost-effectively and quickly. igus' website provides access to readily available 3D models for igus products in the STL format, which can be downloaded and directly used as input data for 3D printing.
