DSM announces Somos®partnership with Prodways to bring the latest developments to the 3D Printing industry
Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, is excited to announce a new partnership between Somos® and Prodways. Specializing in 3D Printing systems that utilize their MOVINGLight® technology, Prodways was looking to collaborate with a high performance material supplier that offered products suitable for their 365nm DLP mobile machines designed for industrial applications.
Two new materials developed with Somos® technology will be launched at EuroMold and available for use in DLP (Digital Light Processing) machines operating at 365 nm (nanometers), including the Prodways’ DLP mobile machines. These materials were designed to have the same level of performance as the category leading Somos® 355nm stereolithography materials. This high level of performance is moving the 365nm technology platform into industrial applications for automotive, aerospace, electronics and consumer goods.
“We are thrilled to be working with such a cutting-edge company like Prodways,” says Ms. Melissa Hayes, Business Director Somos®. “We look forward to our continuing our commitment to innovation through this partnership.”
“Somos® has always produced game-changing materials for stereolithography technology,” says Philippe Laude, Managing Director of Prodways. “This partnership will accelerate the development of the 365nm technology platform by providing the industry with the best-in-class products to make future innovations a reality.”
