Igus expanded the scope of its 3D printing service: Iglidur I10 enables the production of chemical-resistant, lubrication-free tribo-polymer component using selective laser sintering (SLS). The laser sintering printing material is not only resistant to acids, bases, alcohols, greases and oils. It is also characterised by low moisture absorption, high toughness and high ductility – which indicates the property of a material to deform permanently under shear load before breaking. The Iglidur I10 is therefore an ideal material for weight-saving industrial functional components with elastic properties. There are numerous applications for the printing material as it is also certified in accordance with the specifications of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and complies with EU Regulation 10/2011, which certifies that the plastic is harmless in contact with food. Igus will also offer the new printing material in its in-house 3D printing service. Customers can upload a Step file online with the 3D model of the desired component and select the quantity and printing material. Igus will then manufactures the lubrication and maintenance-free elements using selective laser sintering.
