AMUG 2019: DSM Announces Beta Version of Powder and Continues to Expand its Portfolio with a Myriad of Partnerships

  • DSM takes next steps to accelerate the adoption of 3D printing and to instill a focus on sustainability in the additive manufacturing industry

Geleen, the Netherlands, 28 March, 2019 – Royal DSM, a global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, and diamond sponsor of the annual AMUG conference of the 3D printing industry in Chicago, today unveils its program for the show, which exemplifies its ecosystem and partnership vision and strong sustainability ambitions.

Hugo da Silva, VP of Additive Manufacturing at DSM: “Tomorrow, the entire manufacturing industry should see AM as a viable route to sustainable production. This requires an accelerated adoption of AM technology. At DSM we are looking at all options to support this development. We are moving quickly to introduce new materials and collaborate with partners as and where possible.”

At AMUG, DSM will be announcing a beta version of its new PBT powder product for 3D printing. This is the first powder for 3D printing from the science-based materials group, and is the first ever PBT powder to be made commercially available for SLS printing processes. For DSM it is the first material developed from their technology platform of new powders – which they want to co-develop with customers so as to ensure it meets market and application needs.

Hugo da Silva of DSM: “Our prime ambition is to unleash the full potential of additive manufacturing and to increase adoption in the manufacturing industry. That is why we are proud to announce the first beta PBT powder of our technology platform in co-development with the market. The final outcome will suit the needs of our customers even better.”

Known for its ecosystem approach to the additive manufacturing industry, DSM is taking further steps to increase collaboration in the industry as a way to accelerate adoption of AM technology. It recently announced partnerships with JuggerBot 3D, Adaptive3D, Fortify and Chromatic.

Hugo da Silva: “At DSM, we like to offer our customers choices; and as we cannot do everything ourselves, we are always on the lookout for new partnerships. This is exactly how the 3D printing ecosystem matures further. Some of our partners (such as printer manufacturers) play elsewhere in the value chain while others are materials companies. They help us bring an expanded portfolio to our customers – exemplified by our ventures with Adaptive3D (DLP) and Chromatic 3D (Thermoset 2K Extrusion) anda partnership with Fortify (DLP).”

Finally, poised to have a prominent presence at AMUG 2019, DSM’s thought leaders will be visible throughout the show via numerous speaking slots in the program.

By way of example: Hugo da Silva, VP of Additive Manufacturing at DSM will shed more light on why 3D printing needs to be sustainable as of day one, during a session on Monday.

Jill Cohen, Global Director Marketing and Sales for Additive Manufacturing at DSM will moderate a panel on Wednesday with representatives from the ecosystem on how to build that ecosystem further so as to increase the adoption of additive manufacturing.

Presentation by Hugo da Silva (DSM): “Sustainable Manufacturing – No Longer a Dream With 3D Printing”

1.30-2.30 PM – Wilford A/B, Hilton Chicago

  • Subject: “Additive manufacturing (AM) is quickly evolving from a prototyping technology into a mainstream manufacturing process. As the industry gathers momentum, it is presented with a huge opportunity to make AM sustainable from day one.
  • We have a historic window to develop, from the beginning, new materials that are recyclable, reusable and/or bio-degradable or bio-based. Investing in solutions where plastics can be 3D printed into usable applications fits perfectly with the intrinsically sustainable nature of AM as a production process. Using only what is needed to build layer by layer, it reduces scrap and waste. As it can be done locally, it has the potential to reduce carbon emissions substantially by shortening the supply chain.
  • DSM invites AM industry players to partner in addressing this ambition – now.”
