For example, if the delivery must be extremely fast – 24h up to a maximum of 3 days. In addition, the more complex the component, the more beneficial it is to make the components directly in 3D printing. Due to the tool-less manufacturing, complexity does not cause any additional costs. For small parts under 5 g, no matter whether complex or simple, 3D printing can be the most cost-effective method – even with quantities up in the four-digit range. For 3D printing, you can use the igus 3D printing service to order your custom-made special parts online and fast. iglidur high-performance plastics are also available as filaments for the 3D printing and are particularly suitable for moving applications due to their high abrasion resistance and very good coefficients of friction.
