DSM to Develop Composites with U.S. 3D Printing Firm

Life sciences company Royal DSM recently formed a partnership with Fortify, an advanced additive manufacturing firm headquartered in Boston that will focus on the development of high performance composite materials used to 3D print structural parts.

The effort will combine Fortify’s Digital Composite Manufacturing (DCM) platform and experience in fiber processing with DSM’s expertise in the development and formulation of 3D printing resins.

“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 Vice President of Additive Manufacturing Hugo de Silva said in a company press release announcing the team up. 

Materials produced through the partnership will be distributed through Fortify for a variety of applications, including aerospace, automotive, and rapid tooling.

“DSM is an ideal partner for us,” the chief executive officer of Fortify, Josh Martin, said in a statement. “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.”
