Buy a gear and have it printed in 3D

Additive manufacturing for gears, spur gears, bevel gears, sprockets and worm wheels

Produce low-wear gears with 3D printing. In the Gear Shop in the igus 3D printing service, this is fast, uncomplicated and cost-effective. Also spur gears, bevel gears, sprockets, worm wheels and all other types of gears made of durable iglidur polymers with a wall thickness of 0.5mm or more can be ordered at the Gear Shop
Industrial 3D printing offers many advantages in the production of polymer gears. The possibility of optimisation of the gear  in terms of weight and tooth shape or the adjustment of the transmission ratio have a positive effect on the service life of the gear. The production of friction-optimised iglidur high-performance polymers will also significantly improve the service life of gears.

Advantages of 3D printing: 

  • Gears, spur gears, bevel gears, worm wheels, sprockets, and so on made of durable iglidur polymers
  • Fast delivery in 24 - 72 hours
  • Individual gears No minimum order quantity
  • Long service life thanks to optimised tooth shape in our gear configurator
  • Low-wear and friction-optimised iglidur polymers to choose from
  • Service life and specifications comparable to iglidur injection moulded parts

The igus gear configurator

With the igus gear configurator, you can create 3D models for your custom gear with involute toothing online. You will find a selection of different gear types that you can customise according to your requirements.

Calculate service life of your gear

With the service life calculator for gears, you can calculate the service life of your gear. Optimise the size, number of teeth or teeth module and increase the durability of your gear. If manufactured from our iglidur high-performance polymer, your gear becomes up to 50 times more durable than standard 3D printing materials.

Durability of our 3D printing materials

Specifically for components in moving applications. The wear-resistant parts made of iglidur polymers manufactured with 3D printing at igus have a longer service life than standard 3D printing materials. In our in-house laboratory, we test our iglidur polymers continuously regarding their tribological properties.
