Lubrication-free 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 polymers ensure enhanced 3D printing technology and lower costs. With its modular motion plastics system, igus enables maximum design freedom for individual applications in the area of 3D printing: drylin linear plain 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 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.
You do not require components for constructing a 3D printer, but instead are looking for wear-resistant parts for prototypes or small series?
If so, benefit from the igus 3D printing service: simply order durable and maintenance-free components online.You can also find highlights such as a digital wall thickness analysis, coloured components printed in 3D and our print2mold service for injection moulded parts from tools printed in 3D, which lets you save up to 70% in time and 80% in costs.

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