          Royal DSM, a global science-based company in nutrition, health and sustainable living, and Twikit, a Belgian 3D software and application development company, are collaborating to develop new 3D printed solutions for medical, automotive, and apparel applications. Combining the two companies’ expertise will help progress in advanced manufacturing techniques.

          Their collaboration is a further extension of DSM’s ongoing work to build a 3D printing ecosystem, aimed at driving innovation in additive manufacturing and encouraging its adoption across industries. DSM and Twikit are currently working on an end-to-end production workflow for 3D printed orthotics and prosthetics, showcasing additive manufacturing's unparalleled customisability.

          Combining DSM’s proven materials and market reach with Twikit’s experience in software development and application development will facilitate extensive progress in advanced manufacturing techniques. The partnership between the two companies will lead to revolutionary new customisability and made-to-measure turnkey solutions across various industries. Both Twikit and DSM are known for their partnership approach across the 3D printing value chain.

          Specifically, DSM and Twikit will explore new applications in the automotive, healthcare, and footwear industries. The process leading up to the final 3D printed product will always comprise an initial 3D scan, product design, material optimisation, testing and modeling. Twikit’s unique morphing algorithm will further enable and improve the design of made-to-measure products.

          The automotive industry in particular gains from personalised dashboards, light covers and car seats. Aside from delivering customisability, additive manufacturing facilitates weight reduction and increased vehicle safety. Other important advantages of 3D printing include spare parts on demand, low volume production, and a more efficient production process.

          The healthcare industry should also benefit greatly from a digital transformation, ie performance-enhanced medical solutions provided by precise, made-to-measure applications based on detailed scans of the human body. 3D printed medical solutions also have shorter lead times and lower production costs than traditionally manufactured equivalents.

          In addition, 3D printed and made-to-measure mid insoles will enable major advances in customisable footwear. Individualised soles and insoles are known for their increased performance and comfort, in addition to reducing the risk of injuries for end users.

          Hugo da Silva, VP Additive Manufacturing DSM, says: “Our partnership with Twikit allows us to make significant advances in key sectors that stand to benefit from the wider-scale adoption of additive manufacturing. In healthcare, for example, 3D printed, made-to-measure prosthetics and orthotics will positively impact people’s lives across the globe. Reinforcing our 3D printing ecosystem with experienced partners like Twikit enables us to offer customers not just materials, but also expertise and insights to translate market needs into total 3D printed solutions. By providing end-to-end solutions, we are able to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing at scale.”

          One specific market Twikit and DSM are focusing on is the prosthetics and orthotics industry. Despite the clear advantages of advanced additive manufacturing techniques in terms of customisability and production efficiency, their adoption by prosthetics and orthotics manufacturers is still limited.

          By integrating DSM’s proven and certified materials with Twikit’s software, the resulting 3D printing turnkey solution provides patients with better and faster care. Patients stand to benefit from a higher level of comfort and faster healing due to made-to-measure 3D printed medical solutions. The companies are also working together with printer OEMs, so as to give prosthetics and orthotics manufacturers a turnkey full solution and full access to the 3D printing value chain.

          The aim is to market Twikit’s made-to-measure software solution ‘TwikFit’ and develop tested and verified product templates. The jointly developed and integrated applications by DSM and Twikit will be unveiled to the public at Formnext 2019 in Frankfurt.

          Martijn Joris, CEO and co-founder of Twikit, adds: “Prosthetics and orthotics are an excellent example of the digital transformation and the enhanced customisability enabled by 3D printing. Our work in other sectors, such as the apparel and automotive industries, has already demonstrated that additive manufacturing can generate high value for OEMs through individualisation. With the partnership, we will accelerate growth and innovation across the 3D printing value chain.”
