With Ultimaker's material partner ecosystem, you can simply click and print with over 220 different polymers. It just got a lot harder not to create new applications!
Together we are wear-resistant
Igus® develops wear-resistant, high-performance polymers known as motion plastics®. Its materials help reduce costs by lowering energy consumption in production and operation, and eliminating the use of lubricants.
Igus’ iglidur® I150 Tribofilament, for example, is developed for use as bearing material and for wear parts. Its ease of use and high abrasion resistance make it a go-to material for applications with movement and friction. It will be printed live at Formnext, on an Ultimaker S5 3D printer. For more information on Igus GmbH and the cooperation with Ultimaker, you can listen to this episode of our Talking Additive podcast to get to know Igus’ vision on Motion Plastics 3D filaments.
