DSM Adds Somos Taurus 3D Printing Material for High Thermal and Mechanical Performance

Officially unveiled at AMUG, the new Somos Taurus resin brings the combination of thermal and mechanical performance that until now has only been achieved using thermopolymer-based 3D printing techniques such as FDM and SLS.

Somos Taurus is the latest addition to the high impact family of stereolithography (SLA) materials from Somos. Parts printed with this material are easy to clean and finish. The higher heat deflection temperature of this material increases the number of applications for the part producer and user.

Key Benefits for 3D Printing:

  • Superior strength and durability
  • Wide range of applications
  • Excellent surface and large part accuracy
  • Heat tolerance up to 90°C
  • Thermoplastic-like performance, look and feel

Applications

DSM suggests that using Somos Taurus to 3D print parts will provide the added value of excellent surface quality and isotropy, enabling reduced job times for highly detailed parts with more uniform performance. The darker color of Somos Taurus also gives an added richness to parts, minimizing part finishing requirements and painting, thus making it a great choice for the automotive and aerospace industries.

In the competitive world of product design development, the right prototyping choice is the key to success. For the speed, accuracy and functional testing you need, stereolithography is one of the most efficient and effective prototyping technologies available. DSM is a stereolithography solutions leader, supporting OEMs and service bureaus. Somos materials have earned a global reputation for providing the 3D Printing community with groundbreaking, high-performance materials to fit just about every application. DSM dedicated team members have an average of 10 years’ experience in the specialized area of SL and are able to provide creative solutions for any design project.
