Colour your 3D printed parts with a wide variety of colours using the DyeMansion DM60
Limitless colour choices: From standardized database to tailor-made recipes
Our innovative DeepDye Colouring (DDC) technology offers unlimited colour choices. As a DM60 user you benefit from the largest colour database. In addition to over 170 RAL and standardized colours, which are ready-to-use without additional development costs and waiting times, our colour matching also offers the possibility of creating individual tones for you – from corporate colors to seasonal trend colours and individual skin tones. The fully automatic cleaning program of the DM60 allows a flexible use and a fast colour change.
Exact colour formulas for a reproducible and traceable process globally available
For a long time, dyeing 3D printed plastics was a manual, uncontrollable process. the DM60 takes care of this process and offer a global supply of exact colour recipes down to the microgram. This enables an industrial process that could not be easier for the user and can be reproduced any time. The power lies in our colour cartridges, which we manufacture depending on base material, finish and desired colour. Based on the volume of your parts, cartridges are available in four different sizes. These are equipped with an RFID chip that transfers all process parameters QM ready to the DM60.
ISO certified colours for end-use applications across all industries
The demands for 3D printed products are constantly increasing. Our ISO-certified colours make us a trusted technology partner for biocompatible eyewear or medical orthoses as well as for light- and heat resistant automotive interiors. With our extended ColoursX line, we are responding to industry specific requirements and are always looking forward to new input for the further development of our DeepDye Colouring (DDC) technology.
Unlimited Colour Options
Vast array of colours to choose from including industry specific
DyeMansion currently has 17 standard colours for the DM60. Developed on EOS PA2200 with PSS finish, other materials may vary. Frequently used in on-demand finishing applications.
With colour matching you can design 3D printed parts in your corporate colour or any colour of choice you like. From replicating the exact colour of an injection molded part to the development of special color shades that match skin tones – there are no limitations.
Benefit from an entire RAL colour range: A large choice of colors with no waiting times and no additional development costs. For all the designers and fashion lovers, DyeMansion can create any Pantone TPG color for every surface finish. Plus industry specific colours for automotive, sportswear and lifestyle applications.
