The financial investors Unternehmertum Venture Capital Partners (UVC partners) and btov Partners followed AM Ventures and supported us with a $5 M Series A funding. This allowed us to further expand our global business and to extend the Print-to-Product workflow with new products.
DyeMansion North America Inc.
In May 2018, we laid the foundation for our market presence in the United States by founding DyeMansion North America Inc., attending the first 3D-printing events in America and establishing a local team on-site.
DyeMansion and EOS, the world leader in industrial 3D printing systems, have been in a strategic partnership since November 2017. Our partnership combines the production and post-processing of 3D-printed products. EOS not only uses our Print-to-Product workflow at its headquarters in Krailling or Pflugerville, TX, but also supports us in serving customers around the world. Until today many exciting customer projects have already resulted from this partnership.
With many new ideas from Silicon Valley and valuable feedback from our first customers, we used the phrase DyeMansion Print-to-Product workflow for the first time in the fall of 2017 when we talked about our three systems for cleaning, surfacing and coloring of 3D-printed plastics. In combination with the DM60, the Powershots complemented our product portfolio so well, that we were able to offer our customers an end-to-end process chain for the post-processing of their parts From the raw part to a high-value product! With this complete solution we quickly became the world market leader for Additive Manufacturing finishing systems.
With our innovative hardware product portfolio, we stood out from the crowd amongst many other German startups in 2017 and won the German Accelerator Tech, a program of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology to promote German tech startups on their way to the US market. We took our first taste of American air and spent the summer of 2017 with experienced mentors in Silicon Valley in preparation for our market launch in the United States. It was a very educative and inspiring time!
It quickly became clear that 3D-printed end-use applications require more than just color. In order to improve the surface quality of the plastics and reduce the amount of manual work our customers have to do, we expanded our product portfolio in November 2016 with the world premiere of the DyeMansion Powershot series. A year after the market launch of our DM60, this system was also launched during Formnext in Frankfurt.
Increasing incoming orders in the On-Demand service, the expansion of the DyeMannschaft and our big plans for the future naturally needed their place. We found it in summer 2016 with our new mansion in Planegg near Munich. Since then, we call the 2500 square meters including laboratory and storage space our mansion.
Less than nine months later, we celebrated the world premiere of our first own hardware system at the Formnext exhibition in Frankfurt. There we presented the DM60 as the world's first automated coloring solution for 3D-printed plastics and won the Formnext Start-up Challenge with the system. Following the exhibition, we started a pilot phase with selected customers such as FKM and Materialise.
Every vision needs someone to support it. Dr. Hans Langer, founder of EOS, the global leader in industrial 3D-printing systems, recognized the potential behind our vision and invested in spring 2015 through his investment holding AM Ventures. Arno Held's team encouraged us during the development phase of our industrial colouring solution and provided crucial food for thought on our first steps.
Since then, the whole team has been working on the development of an industrial coloring solution, leaving the smartphone cases behind. Trindo became DyeMansion (to dye = coloring, mansion = house) and an on-demand coloring service was launched - DyeMansion customers were able to have their 3D-printed plastics dyed in the Munich "DyeMansion" from then on.
Our story started in 2013 in a small cellar in Munich. Felix Ewald and Philipp Kramer founded the 3D-printing agency Trindo and sold 3D-printed smartphone covers in the corporate design of large companies – but what would be the story of a startup without some initial difficulties? Trindo had to take back the first 200 smartphone cases as the color faded and dyed their customers’ trouser pockets. During the search for a solution, the two young founders quickly discovered the great potential of a technology for the industrial coloring of 3D-printed plastics. The idea to develop an own coloring solution was born.
