Together, DSM and AMT will focus efforts on accelerating the adoption of additive manufacturing by offering customers solutions that include DSM’s filament and powder materials and AMT’s post-processing technology.
Customers will see a first benefit from the collaboration as DSM’s Arnitel® and Novamid® filaments, as well as Arnite® T PBT powders, will be optimized with AMT’s automated post-processing machine, PostPro3D, saving end users time, money and energy. Traditional post-processing – a highly manual process - is attributed to nearly 60% of the costs of additive manufacturing. PostPro3D enables manufacturers to produce sealed, smooth parts with surface quality as good as injection molded components. AMT’s PostPro3D is safe, sustainable and the world’s only UL approved post-processing machine.
The two companies will share the advantages of DSM’s materials and AMT’s technology across their combined global network, providing customers in key industries like automotive, healthcare, electronics and wearables, with all-encompassing guidance and support.
