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 […]

Can 3D printers replace machine tools?

Sven Weber | 22. April 2020

You need a metallic component. You can quickly import the software model and the part comes out of the 3D printer in no time at all. Swarf doesn’t occur. There is practically no waste. This quickly leads to the question: can 3D printers replace classic machine tools? This blog examines this question for three relevant […]

Quickly available prototypes or samples for your plain bearing application

Dirk Tietz | 22. April 2020

The course of a development project can be turbulent. In time-critical phases, it is all the more important to have reliable partners and suppliers who provide rapid support with solutions and samples for tests. But which prototypes are available at what speed and what is the right sample for a specific project status? We support […]

3D printing with iglidur polymers in medical technology

Maria Burkanova | 25. March 2020

Medical technology is an important driver of 3D printing technologies: highly customisable products offer unprecedented opportunities for a wide range of medical solutions. Components from 3D printers are used in the production of individually manufactured components for patients, such as hearing aids. Hospitals are acquiring their own 3D printers so that they can quickly create […]
