Additive Manufacturing

Automotive & Motorsports

Are you looking to re-think automotive design and production? Are you excited by the potential to produce spare parts faster, more efficiently and cost effectively?  Are you considering producing high-quality small series automotive components and tooling – without expensive injection molding techniques?

At DSM we combine 25 years’ experience in 3D printing solutions with an industry leading heritage in working with the world’s leading automotive OEMs to create lighter, greener more durable components based on high-performance materials.

For manufacturers it means no more using expensive and time-consuming injection molding techniques to produce small series, spare parts and tooling. Instead you can now use our additive materials and expertise to create components that are indistinguishable from traditionally produced thermoplastics – in less time, with less waste and at lower cost.

In fact, we don’t just understand materials; we understand your application - and the process behind it. As Mark Wynn, Technical Specialist at our customer Yazaki North America, explains of their DSM solution: “If I have a material that produces 50 percent more parts and those parts take less manpower and less time to create, I’ve just increased my revenue and competitive advantage.”

Motorsports as innovator lab for automotive additive manufacturing?

How well do our additive manufacturing materials perform? Today, our 3D printing materials are being used not just for testing, but actually inside those vehicles that face perhaps the toughest test of all…in Formula 1. 

Meanwhile, our partnership agreement with Toyota Motorsport GmbH is helping us to jointly pilot new engineering solutions for various applications based on our high-performance materials.

With additive manufacturing, we’re on the road to re-designing not just the car but the entire automotive industry. Why not join us?
