igus presents world's first tribo filament for 3D printers. New material is up to 50 times more abrasion-resistant than conventional 3D printer materials igus has been researching the 3D printer filament field to provide its customers with even more flexibility. For instance, they can design custom parts or manufacture prototypes while simultaneously relying on the tested service life of igus materials. The product, which has been tested countless times in the igus in-house testing lab, is the first filament for 3D printers specifically developed for dynamic applications. This new filament gives customers more flexibility for the design of their bearings, even prototypes can be produced relatively cost-effectively and quickly. igus' online 3D-CAD library provides access to readily available 3D models for igus products in STL formats, which can be downloaded and directly used as input data for 3D printing. The filament will be produced with spool diameters of 1.75 mm. The material “iglide I170-PF”, developed by igus, was developed and tested solely for the “Fused-Deposition-Modeling” (FDM) manufacturing method. Further processing instructions: When feeding the filament, the redirection should not be too tight, i.e. the radius should not be less than 50 mm. Please ensure good ventilation or suction during processing. In addition, please wear appropriate protective gear when handling the hot melt. The material may not be heated to a temperature higher than 280 °C. If the material is heated to a temperature above 300 °C, dangerous decomposition products are released. Based on the supplier’s experience and the information provided by the supplier, the product has no adverse health effects if properly handled and used in accordance with the intended purpose.
