Filaments

Bearing Material Filament can be used in 3D printers.

Enhanced with tribological, or low friction, properties, plastic filament for 3D printers is formulated to be resistant to effects of wear and abrasion. Product, developed for motion control applications, is suited for creating custom bearings. Properties of this plastic filament give end-users flexibility for design of their application's bearings and accelerate prototype development.
