Fortify’s expertise and know-how on hardware and fibre-processing will bring immediate increases in the mechanical properties of DSM’s resin by leveraging DCM, said DSM in a press release. In addition, Fortify and the DCM platform will become a distribution channel for DSM’s 3D printing materials. By bringing strong mechanical and temperature properties to 3D printed parts, the materials are ideally suited for a wide variety of applications in numerous markets: automotive, aerospace, electronics, rapid tooling, and jigs and fixtures.
“At DSM additive manufacturing, we believe that collaborating with industry partners is key to advance the industry,” said Hugo da Silva, VP of additive manufacturing at DSM. “Partnering with Fortify allows us to develop high-performance composite materials for DLP technology, making the technology viable for functional parts in demanding applications.”
“DSM is an ideal partner for us,” said Josh Martin, CEO of Fortify. “Our collaboration allows us to leverage DSM’s mature supply chain and years of experience developing advanced materials to expand our resin palette. We’re excited to partner with an industry leader and work with them to develop cutting-edge resins.”
“We don’t want to limit our customers’ ability for growth and exploration within additive,” said Karlo Delos Reyes, VP of business development at Fortify. “We guarantee our customers flexibility by embracing open innovation.”
Most 3D printing platforms are closed, limiting the use of resins to those that are produced by the 3D printer company itself. With the Fortify fibre platform, Fortify is inviting the world’s best materials suppliers to develop high-performance resins in conjunction with Fortify material scientists and engineers. Partners can properly harness the power of composites without having to build out the in-house expertise that Fortify provides. (PC)
