HSS Material Network – Proof of Concept iglidur® i3-PL

The HSS Material Network is an interdisciplinary network of selected experts dedicated to making the development and qualification of new polymer materials for the additive manufacturing process High Speed Sintering (HSS) more flexible and faster.

The VX200 HSS from voxeljet is designed as an open source 3D printing system and provides full access to process parameters and temperature management in order to best match the printing process and material. The HSS Material Network offers customers a flexible and low-risk outsourcing option for material development for additive manufacturing. The complementary competencies of the HSS Material Network partners enable companies of all sizes to receive unique support, from an initial suitability test, through specific development and parameterization, to certification or market-ready qualification of the material. Here we present our partners, projects and proof of concepts.

Proof of Concept iglidur® i3-PL

Customer/Material Manufacturer: igus GmbH
Development & qualification: Fraunhofer IPA / Universität Bayreuth

igus is one of the recognized experts when it comes to polymers for sliding applications. 3D printing is not a novelty for the company. The iglidur® i3-PL material was already qualified for laser sintering processes in 2016 and over 400,000 components have been manufactured with it to date. By means of HSS, the material can be processed even more economically. The reason for this is the high productivity and reproducibility of the HSS process.
