DSM Additive Manufacturing

Taking manufacturing to a new dimension

Let’s manufacture tomorrow

At DSM Additive Manufacturing, we draw on over 25 years’ experience in 3D printing technologies, performance materials and deep application expertise to help manufacturers rethink the way they design products to manufacture tomorrow. Our goal is to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing and help accelerate the adoption of 3D printing, creating brighter lives for all through both sustainable high-performance materials and processes.

Our pillars of success

As additive manufacturing evolves from a prototyping technology into a mainstream manufacturing technology, the parts themselves - the applications - come under increasing scrutiny. Whether these are medical prostheses, trainer insoles or car parts, they all have specific requirements - which in turn drive the quest for the right materials.

And while DSM puts our materials science to work, we realize the need to collaborate with the entire value network. To truly accelerate adoption, we are creating an ecosystem by partnering with printer manufacturers, material companies, service bureaus, software providers and end users/Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), as well as embracing new business models where opportunities arise.

Sustainable materials and processes

Most importantly, we value sustainability, developing materials that are recyclable, reusable or bio-based.

Investing in solutions where plastics can be 3D printed into usable applications fits perfectly with the intrinsically sustainable nature of 3D printing as a production process. Using only what is needed to build layer by layer, 3D printing reduces scrap and waste. And because it can be done locally, 3D printing has the potential to reduce carbon emissions by shortening the supply chain.

When it comes to realizing the potential of 3D printing, we’ve only just begun.

Supporting sustainable development

At DSM we feel so strongly about doing well by doing good that our company strategy is aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At DSM Additive Manufacturing we’re especially focused on:
