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.

PBT Powder for Automotive

Our PBT powder, Arnite® T AM1210 (P), is the only solution for small series production via additive manufacturing in industrial applications requiring electrical insulation such as automotive electronics. It also boasts improved dimensional stability due to lower moisture uptake and has re-use rates of up to 60%.

DSM now offers on-demand 3D printing for applications printed using Arnite® T AM1210 (P).

Somos® PerFORM Reflect

Somos® PerFORM Reflect is a unique stereolithography material developed specifically for 3D printing parts for wind tunnel testing with PIV. Extensive tests show that the new Somos® PerFORM Reflect reduces post-processing by more than 30% as it eliminates the need for additional PIV coatings. This means faster data collection, decreasing overall lead time per design iteration and allowing customers to conduct iterations faster.

Somos® PerFORM Reflect is also ideal for high temperature testing, electrical casings, automotive housings and tooling.
