GELEEN, NETHERLANDS: Royal DSM has announced a partnership with equipment manufacturer Ultimaker to meet the growing demand for industrial-grade engineering fused filament fabrication (FFF) materials. The company also said that it will demonstrate its expanded portfolio of 3D printing materials, for stereolithography (SLA) and FFF.

DSM recently brought together the company’s experience and expertise to form a new additive manufacturing (AM) business unit, combining deep market-specific application understanding and expertise for polymer AM processing technologies.

DSM will showcase their expanding materials portfolio for use in additive manufacturing - Somos materials for SLA and digital light processing (DLP) as well as materials for FFF such as Arnitel, Arnite and Novamid. DSM Additive Manufacturing is investing heavily in bringing new filaments to market in the coming months, while exploring other 3D printing technologies.

Partnership with Ultimaker

To enable end users to easily 3D-print its materials into high quality parts, DSM is partnering with Ultimaker in their alliance program. Combining their material knowledge with Ultimaker’s insights, gives end users access to a broader scope of professional applications and allows them to print automatically using preconfigured settings available in Ultimaker Cura. This collaboration provides DSM a new route to market, in addition to the existing relationship with Nexeo Solutions 3D for distribution and application development engineering services.

The new partnership underlines DSM’s additive manufacturing strategy for an ecosystem approach. Partnerships and collaboration across the industry allows DSM to provide customers with the right material for the right platform for specific customer applications, surrounding them with an open and flexible infrastructure.

DSM is demonstrating the products at RAPID+TCT 2018.

“Providing customers choices in materials and platforms as they select the right approach for their applications is key to accelerate adoption of 3D printing into industrial manufacturing, beyond prototyping applications. FFF is beginning to burst out of its niche, and DSM has the breadth of thermoplastics materials, the engineering capability, and the understanding of the market to enable additive manufacturing to move into real manufacturing,” said Hugo da Silva, vice president of additive manufacturing at DSM.
