Somos Taurus brings the combination of thermal and mechanical performance that until now was not possible with stereolithography materials. Its robustness combined with a charcoal grey appearance makes it ideal for the most demanding functional prototyping and even end-use applications.

Somos® Taurus is the latest addition to the high impact family of stereolithography (SLA) materials from DSM Additive Manufacturing. 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

Applications

By using Somos® Taurus to print your parts, you get 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 your parts to minimize part finishing and painting making it a great choice for the automotive and aerospace industries.

Zero-emission racing car gets Somos® Taurus’ air in-take ducts for cooling electric motors

Somos® Taurus helped the  Forze Hydrogen Electric Racing Project develop an essential part for the Forze hydro-electric fuel cell that’s light weight and heat resistant which makes it ideal for the latest generation of the car, Forze VIII. Read the full story clicking the link below.

Creating intricate, hollow composite parts has always been a challenge for the traditional manufacturing industry – but not for additive manufacturing. Somos® DMX-SL™ 100 is a durable and tough stereolithography (SL) material that enables you to produce complex, hollow composite parts in days thanks to a unique and cost-effective ‘dry removal’ process: and all with no compromise on quality and aesthetics.

Somos® DMX-SL™ 100 is a unique material for creating 3D printed sacrificial tooling for a wide range of applications, from automotive parts to consumer products to electronics and healthcare. It produces very accurate parts with a superb surface finish and outstanding feature detail.

Somos® DMX-SL™ 100 withstands the extreme temperatures of the autoclave process utilized in composites manufacturing, maintaining its flexural strength, elongation and tear resistance.

But where it really breaks the mold is in the speed, efficiency and design freedom it brings. It’s all based on a unique ‘dry removal’ process that enables mandrels to be removed from complex and convoluted geometries after the autoclave without the need for submersion in caustic (which can affect the composite part).

As a result, manufacturers have more design freedom to create high temperature, cost-effective tools in days rather than weeks or sometimes even months.

Key Benefits

Applications

Somos® Momentum provides a compelling solution that combines rich feature detail and dimensional stability with the most efficient printing outcomes available without compromising on surface quality and dimensional accuracy.

Footwear manufacturers face a multitude of challenges, from developing durable solutions to managing design and the range of sizes required. They continue to seek more effective means to develop new designs to meet increasingly diverse customer needs, while also striving to quicken the pace of design and innovation. Additive manufacturing for footwear tooling has played a key role, and the inherent design flexibility, feature detail and surface quality offered by SL has led this technology into the mainstream. Footwear manufacturers continue to push for faster design iteration, shorter route to market and more cost- and time-efficient approaches.

DSM collaborated with key footwear manufacturers to develop an additive manufacturing material that addresses the specific needs for footwear tooling. Somos® Momentum offers high part accuracy, quality and fine feature detail. The outstanding accuracy of the resin allows the forming of sharp features which in turn enables the creation of detailed soles not only in initial design, but also translated into the aluminum mold.  In addition, the pink color of the material makes it easy to discern key features in the design and to inspect the parts for surface defects. Taking this technology a step further, direct printing of the sole will omit the need for detailing or texturing, speeding up the traditional tooling process up to 60%, enabling a cost reduction up to 30%.

Key Benefits

Through continuous interaction with our customers, pattern makers and foundries, DSM Additive Manufacturing has developed Somos® Element as the next generation of stereolithography resins specifically designed for producing investment casting patterns.

Key Benefits for 3D Printing

Applications

Somos® Element is a new antimony-free stereolithography material that has been specifically created to improve the repeatability and quality of 3D printed casting patterns.

Patterns created with Somos® Element have strong green strength, are dimensionally stable during storage and leave a minimal amount of ash residue after burnout. Any residue that is left behind is easily removed, leaving a perfectly clean void in the ceramic mold. This translates into less mold prep and lower rates of rework saving customers time and money.

Somos® WaterClear Ultra 10122 is a fast and easy to use optically clear SLA resin. It produces colorless, functional and accurate parts that simulate an acrylic appearance. Parts produced from Somos® WaterClear Ultra 10122 exhibit excellent water and temperature resistance.
