# 16 - SPECIAL HANNOVER MESSE

igus Boosts its 3D Printing Shop

“Our ambition is to be able to print every iglide-made product.” At Hannover Messe, igus made it crystal clear that it intends not only to continue developing new materials for additive manufacturing but also to offer its customers the possibility of having their parts produced in an igus printing shop.

DirectIndustry e-Magazine interviewed Tom Krause, iglidur product manager at igus

The process is very simple. The customer loads a 3D model, he receives a price quotation and, if OK, we produce and ship the parts.

This 3D printing service is available anywhere in the world. Complicated designs will be produced in Koln, Germany, while simpler parts will be manufactured at one of the 12 other production centers.

More and more iglide materials will be compatible with this service, including the new chemical resistant C210. By July, igus customers also will have the possibility of ordering finished parts manufactured with iglide i3, a powder-based material made for SLS additive manufacturing.
