DSM is collaborating with 3D printing company Nedcam to develop fused granulate fabrication (FGF) 3D printing. Nedcam will be offering FGF 3D printing using DSM materials and the two companies will reportedly explore new applications in tooling, large-size and circular end-use parts.

Nedcam and DSM also plan to develop and test new materials, processes and applications for  marine, renewable energy, construction and infrastructure.

‘At DSM we believe that FGF is a critical technology to address the need for manufacturing structural and large-size components using highly filled polymers at competitive production lead times,’ said Pieter Leen, application development specialist at DSM.
