Igus Iglidur 150 PF and 180 PF

Posted · Igus Iglidur 150 PF and 180 PF

I just ordered Igus Iglidur 150 PF and 180 PF . I plan on printing some cams for an antique knitting machine. The old ones were so worn out they no longer did their job and I"ve been able to find much less used ones so I can get accurately replicate them. The aren't circular, more of a wedge shape. Anyway,  I figure the low friction nature of the Iglidur will be a great application for this.  I'm trying to find info about what to use on the bed for both the 150 and 180 filaments. 

 

Anyone have any info about how to setup the bed?

    Hi, 

    igus sells an own Magigoo type (https://www.igus.de/product/20272?artNr=PF-ADHESIVE-01), this is strongly recommended for I180. It will hold e.g. a raft very strongly and release it easily once the bed cools off. Recommended temp min. 95 °C

     

    for I150, you can work with just bare glass, but some adhesion medium (glue stick or the above mentioned igus Magigoo) is recommended since it helps with releasing the part off the build plate after printing. Recommended temp min. 65 °C

     

    hope this helps,

    Niklas

    I ordered some direct from igus. Their own documentation says different things in different places. I'll go with your recommendation. 

     

    Thank you
