Vintage spare parts produced in 3D printing

As a specialist for low-wear polymer components, we offer simple solutions for the procurement of various vintage car spare parts . Especially as wear parts such as speedometer cables, coupling rods, plain bearings, bushings and gears are often the weak points in vintage vehicles, which lose their functionality after many years of service. Depending on the vehicle, it is not so easy to find suitable spare parts in the market when searching for vintage car spare parts. Here the 3D printing of vintage spare parts is the perfect solution. No matter what vintage vehicle it is. Whether Fiat 500 vintage spare parts, Mercedes classic car spare parts, Deutz classic car spare parts, Porsche vintage parts or for brands such as BMW, VW, Ford, Opel, Fendt, Alfa, etc., you will find the right customised solution with 3D printing. Even vintage spare parts for tractors or motorcycles, scooters or boats are easy to produce with 3D printing.  
Modern high-performance polymers, which operate with low friction, without lubrication or maintenance, often replace the defective component even better than an original part. Our more than 30 years of experience in the field of low-wear and maintenance-free polymers will also benefit you by producing vintage spare parts with 3D printing.
With 3D printing, we are able to produce your desired vintage spare parts with no minimum quantity from low-wear iglidur polymer. When manufactured with 3D printing, the abrasion resistance of our polymers is comparable to that of conventional processes. Countless tests in our test laboratory confirm that it has more than 50 times higher wear resistance than other polymers.
Vintage spare parts produced with 3D printing - simple, individual, durable!

The modern procurement of vintage spare parts

  • Better quality and more durable than standard or original parts
  • Order online at the 3D printing service - Easy, fast & cost-efficient, from 24 hours
  • On request, we will gladly prepare the required CAD file of your component for production with 3D printing
  • With additive manufacturing, you can benefit from more than 30 years of experience in developing high-performance polymers for moving applications
  • Tested in the laboratory: 3D printed components have comparable wear resistance as those from injection moulding.
  • Low-wear vintage car parts -individually manufactured, low-maintenance, long service life
