Igus presents world’s first tribo for 3D printers

Germany-based igus has presented world’s first 3D printer tribo filament at Hanover 2014.
Especially developed for moving applications, the 3D printer filament is up to 50 times more abrasion-resistant than conventional 3D printed materials, noted igus GmbH.
“Now, quality prototypes or special parts can be printed and still have the excellent wear and friction properties of iglidur plain bearings. The filament is offered in a standard 1.75 mm thickness, and other sizes will become available over time,” igus informed.
