Easy online ordering service now offers automated pricing

24 August 2016

igus has undertaken extensive research and development into 3D printing filaments in order to offer its industrial customers more freedom in their product design and prototyping.

The result was a structural plastic filament for use in 3D printing, designed specifically for moving applications. Customers can purchase the filament for use in their own 3D printers or specify and order parts direct from igus via its easy online ordering and 3D printing service, which now offers automated pricing. 

Using the tribo-filament, it is now possible to create 3D printed plain bearings that deliver both form and function. 50 times more wear-resistant than conventional 3D printing materials, it was developed for engineers that need to create structurally robust prototypes or even small batch samples for real-world testing. The lubrication-free, abrasion-resistant iglidur tribo-filament has strength, even when compared to parts made traditionally via machining and injection moulding. 

The process of purchasing parts made with igus tribo-filament materials is now even easier via the igus three step online ordering and 3D printing service: 

1. Drag and drop your .stl file into the igus configurator.
2. With the 360° viewer, check your model and enter the units of measurement you require. 
3. Select a suitable tribo-filament, your desired order quantity, and place your selection in the shopping basket to instantly receive a quotation.

“Thanks to 3D printing, the prices are competitive for making both prototypes and small batches for production,” says igus director, Robert Dumayne. “Depending on part complexity, completed 3D printed components can be delivered in as little as 24 hours.”
