Royal DSM, a global science-based company specializing in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, has engineered a deal that will see 3D printing materials supplier Formfutura distribute its additive manufacturing filaments.

According to DSM, the deal will give manufacturers, OEMs, designers and 3D printing service bureaus access to DSM additive manufacturing filaments for both prototyping and industrial parts production.

DSM, which reports net sales of about €10 billion and employs approximately 23,000 workers, has been involved in stereolithography for 25 years, but also has a portfolio of FFF/FDM filaments and materials for other 3D printing processes. Earlier this year, the company announced multiple additive manufacturing partnerships, including deals with Toyota Motorsport and desktop 3D printing specialist Ultimaker.

At DSM, we believe that partnerships across the additive manufacturing ecosystem are critical to unlock the full potential of this new technology. Our collaboration with FormFutura allows us to extend our global reach, providing customers with easy ordering and support for our high-performance filaments across all regions and markets.Jill Cohen, Global Director Marketing & Sales for DSM Additive Manufacturing

Building on its market-specific expertise, DSM is currently expanding its additive manufacturing activities into all polymer processing technology platforms. This process will draw on the company’s research in Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Multi Jet Fusion, Ink Jet and Binder Jet processes.

Netherlands-based Formfutura is a supplier of 3D printing materials, which include various formulations of PLA, ABS and Nylon, as well as application-specific composite and engineering materials.

We are proud of this collaboration with DSM as we see a rapidly growing demand in the FFF 3D printing market for industrial grade and high-performance materials in both industrial and SME sectors,” said Arnold Medenblik, CEO of Formfutura. “The DSM materials are a great addition to our FormFutura product range and through our global network of resellers, these high-performance polymers will now be available to everyone. This new portfolio will also open doors to new markets for both FormFutura and our partners.”
