The time for innovation is now.

World first: 3D printing with embedded intelligence

igus 3D printed wear-resistant parts often have the same service life as original parts. Now, they are becoming intelligent; they warn against overloading and indicate when maintenance is necessary. Their speciality is that the sensors are directly "printed into" the parts. As a result, they not only have extremely short delivery times and low costs, but also feature useful Industry 4.0 options. Discover these and more than 120 further innovations online on our News pages and on our trade show stand.
