Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, has signed a “One DSM” framework technology partnership agreement with Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG). The agreement involves all DSM businesses active in supplying materials and technology to the automotive sector – Engineering Plastics, Dyneema (ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene fiber), and 3D Printing including Somos for stereolithography (SLA), and other technologies like Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF).
Under the non-exclusive agreement, DSM will have the opportunity to act as TMG’s preferred material and product provider. TMG will develop and pilot new engineering solutions using DSM high performance materials and products for potential application in the automotive industry. TMG will also test and evaluate DSM products and act as a test user for defined projects.
“We are very excited about this new agreement,” said Golnar Motahari Pour, president of DSM Dyneema. “DSM offers an array of materials that are ideally suited to high performance applications in the automotive arena, and we believe that working together with TMG we will be able to expand our horizons even further. Everybody at DSM is looking forward to being able to work with such a front-runner in automotive engineering from the initial design phase onwards.”
“We are looking forward to extending our cooperation with DSM as a dedicated technology partner,” added Gerard Winstanley, manager future production technologies & processes, fabrication and additive manufacturing at TMG. “Our relationship has developed strongly over the last few years and significantly enhanced our capabilities as well as contributing to DSM’s product development. TMG’s mission is to push the boundaries of automotive technology for motorsport and road car applications both for Toyota projects and also those of our third-party customers. We believe this partnership will support that.”
