3D printing service for wear-resistant parts with fast delivery. 3D printing in no time for wear-resistant parts Due to the solid lubricants within the iglidur® tribofilaments® and laser sintering materials achieve an up to 50 times longer service life compared to standard 3D printing materials. In 2019, for example, more than 120,000 wear-resistant parts were additively manufactured at igus®. Improving application lifetime and reducing costs throughout.
