Post Processing 3D Printing

WHY 3D-PRINTING?

IT'S TIME TO
RETHINK MANUFACTURING

Our world is changing. Pandemics, war, natural disasters, global delivery issues. Time to rethink manufacturing. Industrial 3D-printing can solve some of our issues today and delivers a smarter and more sustainable way to produce products. With 3D-printing, we can reimagine products, rethink business and reinvent manufacturing. With 3D-printing, you can send products via email. This represents nothing less than a new industrial revolution.

WHY POST-PROCESSING?

FROM PRINT TO PRODUCT:
WE DO CONNECTED POST-PROCESSING

3D-printing is powerful. But post-processing for 3D-printed parts was done manually or not at all for a long time. It is still often the bottleneck for efficient part production and the surface quality was often not good enough to produce end-use applications with 3D-printing. DyeMansion was born to change that. We complete your 3D-printing process chain with an automated and integrated end-to-end finishing solution. Our technology adds the finishing touch to your raw parts and turns them into high-value products.

COMPATIBLE 3D-PRINTING TECHNOLOGIES

SLS

COMPATIBLE WITH OUR FULL WORKFLOW:
SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING (SLS)

Laser Sintering and the post-processing of PA11, P12 or TPU parts from technology providers like EOS, Farsoon or 3D Systems is our home turf and where we always put a focus on. Our technology also works with new SLS technologies on the market like from Nexa3D or Formlabs.

SAF, MJF, HSS

COMPATIBLE WITH OUR FULL WORKFLOW:
SELECTIVE ABSORPTION FUSION (SAF), MULTI JET FUSION (MJF) & HIGH SPEED SINTERING (HSS)

Our integrated solutions for cleaning, surfacing and coloring work perfectly with technologies like SAF (Selective Absorption Fusion) from Stratasys or MJF (Multi Jet Fusion) from HP. You can process PA11 parts as well as PA12, TPU, PP parts and more. If you are not sure whether your material works with our solutions, reach out to us. We can answer that quickly and get you started.

FDM / FFF

COMPATIBLE WITH VAPORFUSE SURFACING:
FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING (FDM) & FUSED FILAMENT FABRICATION (FFF)

If you are working with industrial FDM / FFF technologies from companies like Stratasys and with materials like ULTEM or ABS parts, our vapor polishing technology can improve your surfaces. Get in touch or check the Powerfuse S page for more information.

SLA, DLP, CDLP/CLIP

COMPATIBLE WITH DEEPDYE COLORING:
STEREOLITHOGRAPHY (SLA), DIGITAL LIGHT PROCESSING (DLP), CONTINUOUS DIGITAL LIGHT PROCESSING (CDLP) & CONTINUOUS LIQUID INTERFACE PRODUCTION (CLIP)

You are working with SLA or CLIP parts from technology providers like Formlabs or Carbon? Our DeepDye Coloring technology with the DM60 can help to dye your parts in the right color.

Two sophisticated processes for the perfect finish

Whether you need improved aesthetics or functionalities for your parts, we got you covered. For the perfect finish, we have developed two proprietary processes. Experience our finishing options and find the right finish for your application. ​

PolyShot Surfacing - a mechanical blasting process

Semi-gloss, scratch resistant, soft haptics aesthetic finish for rigid plastics such as PA11 or PA12 and applications like eyewear or prosthetics.  
Before After

VaporFuse Surfacing - a chemical smoothing process

Sealed, injection-molding like functional finish for rigid and semi-rigid plastics like PA11, PA12, TPU or PP and applications like pipes or midsoles.  

Before After
DyeMansion's VaporFuse finish gives parts a glossy look - making them look like injection moulded parts. It also improves surface haptics & technical properties.

FIND YOUR WORKFLOW

From perfect fit eyewear to personalized orthotics or midsoles for the footwear industry, our technology makes 3D-printed products become a part of our everyday life. Whether you are a service bureau handling lots of different materials and geometries per day or a OEM ramping up a new innovative serial production with AM, we have you covered and the right Print-to-Product workflow for your needs.

GROUP OF INITIATORS

The model defines the stages of industrial 3D printing along the entire process chain from material to machines to automation. 

The status quo of additive manufacturing can be analyzed by applying a Maturity Check, which will be offered by Siemens, following the structure of the AM I Navigator framework. The check is a structured approach that will show the current maturity level of AM and the potential for improvement for the company in question.
