iglide i3000 from igus is a 3D printing resin developed specifically for digital light processing 3D printing of wear parts and gears. Its service life is notably greater than that of conventional 3D printing resins, so iglide i3000 is suitable for any kind of wear application, according to the company. Enrichment with solid lubricants makes the 3D-printed components self-lubricating and low maintenance. iglide i3000 can also withstand long-term application temperatures of up to 80°C.

In the 3D printing service, igus processes its own iglide i3000 resin in the classic DLP process with a high resolution that allows detailed shapes and recesses. In addition, the UV wavelength of 385nm can reduce excessive curing and ensure a more precise shape, according to igus.

The company invites those interested to start the beta test phase. Feel free to send an inquiry if you would like to test wear parts or gears made of iglide i3000.
