DYEMANSION POWERSHOT S
TO ACHIEVE AN END-USE PART FINISH
Our automated mechanical PolyShot Surfacing (PSS) is the most efficient process on the market to achieve the best end-use part finish. It does not remove any material and works perfectly for hard plastics like PA12 or PA11 across all geometries. 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. Using our automated PolyShot Surfacing, instead of time-consuming abrasive methods like tumbling, increases your productivity and part quality significantly.
WITH PLEASANT HAPTICS AND IMPROVED PROPERTIES
PSS delivers a unique matt-glossy look and pleasant haptics for the majority of 3D-printed end-use applications. Launched in 2016, it set a totally new quality standard and is well-established in various industries already: From perfect fit eyewear to personalized car interiors. Especially in the consumer sector and for many technical applications the improved scratch resistance and soft haptics lead to higher wearing comfort and an extended product life cycle.
We believe PolyShot Surfacing to be the main basis for maximizing coloring results. Shooting beads accelerated with compressed air equalizes the peaks and lows of the surface, achieving a more homogenous part quality. The pores are closed during the process and the result is a significantly improved, uniform surface. This is particularly important for further processing steps, such as chemical dyeing techniques in a water bath. The dyes are taken up much more homogenous from the base material.

SPECIAL BLASTING NOZZLE SET-UP & AUTOMATED BLASTING MEDIA CLEANING
The combination of blasting and ionizing nozzles 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.
THE KEY TO 3D-PRINTED INDUSTRIAL AND CONSUMER PRODUCTS
Our PSS process is compatible with every geometry and reaches almost all areas of the part in a few minutes. This way it’s possible to finish the surface of almost every powder-based plastic part and to achieve a more homogeneous surface quality than on an untreated part.
Using our PolyShot Surfacing process, the surface of AM plastics gets a matt glossy look. A product property that increases the visual quality of your parts dramatically.
Due to the closed pores after the blasting step, the parts become more dirt- and scratch-resistant. This is crucial for products that are constantly exposed to water and dirt (e.g. eyewear, sporting goods).
The parts show much better haptics and can be worn directly on the skin.
