DyeMansion Powershot S

The leading blasting system for end-use parts with a superior finish

Automated 3D printed part smoothing solution for powder-bed processes, such as Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).

Since Powder Bed Fusion technologies work layer by layer the outcome are parts with rather rough surfaces compared to conventional manufacturing methods. In addition, the untreated surface is predisposed to dirt. The Powershot S surface finishing machine is used for post processing vastly improve the 3D printed part properties.

PROCESS Solution

Smooth your powder-based 3D printed parts

  • Proprietary surfacing process with plastic beads
  • Most efficient surfacing technology to achieve end-use parts
  • Non-abrasive surface homogenization
  • Semi-glossy surfaces with ideal properties: The foundation for superior colouring results
  • Achieves high scratch resistance and soft haptics

DyeMansion PolyShot Surfacing (PSS)

Beads accelerated by compressed air are shot at the surface of the parts reducing the roughness and homogenizes the surface.

Cycle time: 10-15 minutes

Efficient surfacing technology to achieve end-use parts

The proprietary PolyShot Surfacing (PSS) is non-abrasive and works perfectly for hard plastics like PA12 or PA11 across all geometries. Shooting beads accelerated with compressed air equalizes the peaks and lows of the surface, achieving a more homogenous part quality. With a cycle time of only 10 minutes and a capacity of a mid-sized build job per run, the Powershot S works very cost-effectively. Unlike time consuming abrasive methods like tumbling, PolyShot Surfacing increases your productivity and part quality significantly.

Semi-gloss surfaces with ideal properties: The foundation for superior coloring results

The Powershot S delivers unique semi-gloss looks and pleasant haptics for almost every 3D-printed end-use product. Being heavily used since 2016 in various industries, it set totally new quality standards due to enabling the results of improved scratch resistance and homogenous finishes. This is particularly important for further processing steps, like the DeepDye Colouring.

Advanced operator convenience with enhanced ergonomics and process control

Experience a new level of process control with a touchscreen and integrated control panel. The Powershot S is being operated through a user friendly interface and pre-installed programs can be started. Individual programs can be configured and saved easily, enabling a fast adaption to your application. With a user-centric design everything can be easily accessed and operated safely. Continuous monitoring allows an efficient and reproducible process.

DyeMansion Powershot S Benefits

Smooth your parts while retaining the original geometry

DyeMansion matt-gloss finish

Matt-glossy surfaces with pleasant haptics and improved properties

PolyShot Surfacing (PSS) achieves matt-glossy surfaces with a homogeneous surface quality for hard polymers such as PA11 and PA12. The process not only increases scratch resistance, but also achieves a dirt-resistant surface.

DyeMansion smoothed part

Improved part quality, look and feel of 3D printed part

Since Powder Bed Fusion technologies work layer by layer the outcome are parts with rather rough surfaces compared to conventional manufacturing methods. The PolyShot Surfacing process improves the look and feel of your 3D printed parts.

Orthotic 3D printed part

Homogenization of the surface as key for maximum coloring results

The homogenized surface achieved by PolyShot surfacing ensures that the color is absorbed more evenly and better by the part during coloring. This is advantageous when further processing steps such as gluing or painting are to be carried out.


Automated blasting media cleaning

Easy operation of the DyeMansion Powershot S machine:

The combination of blasting and flat-jet nozzles as well as an ionizing unit are optimized to achieve this powder-free process. A high-performance, adjustable cyclone separates the blasting media from other particles and keeps the cabinet clean.
