SmartSlice now supports iglidur I150 and iglidur I180

igu-blog-adm | 4. May 2021

SmartSlice is a plug-in from Teton Simulation for the Cura 3D printed slicer. With SmartSlice, users can assess the components before the actual printing. It is a finite element simulation plug-in that uses material parameters and simulation technology to calculate the durability and deformation of printed parts before they are even printed. All inputs to […]

iglidur I8-ESD: abrasion-resistant components with ESD specifications

Paul Gomer | 5. May 2020

Every machine contains moving parts that cause friction during operation. In contrast to metal, components made of wear-resistant iglidur polymers do not require additional lubrication (because they contain solid lubricants) – however polymers cannot dissipate the electrostatic discharge caused by friction. In semiconductor and electrical engineering, a static discharge through components can cause permanent damage […]
