DyeMansion has released a new range of colors for laser sintered parts. The German company had announced this development when it secured 5M $ to go global.
The improvement of laser sintered parts
The standardization of colors and their reproducibility with a stabilized process enables the 3D printing startup to raise the quality of laser sintered parts. That’s why, for the company, freedom of design does not only refer to the free choice of any geometry but also a variety of colors.
The new RAL database is immediately available for all DyeMansion customers. Neither with waiting periods nor linked with additional costs for the development of a RAL color. This applies for DM60 color cartridges as well as for the DyeMansion On-Demand Service. Especially DyeMansion’s 3D-printing service providers are more than happy to have the possibility offering their customers a better range of colors that is also easier to handle.
Furthermore, the RAL color range will also be available for white HP Multi Jet Fusion parts of the 500/300 series.
“For Prototype Projects and our clients, the full range of RAL colors, now available off the shelf for our new DyeMansion system, opens up new avenues for Additive Manufacturing and prototyping using the SLS process. The possibilities afforded by such a wide color range are fantastic and the coloring constraints in the process that previously existed have now disappeared. Our customers will love the ability to select any color for their 3D-parts, including bespoke colors to match their existing branding. With no color restrictions, this Print-to-Product workflow, using the DyeMansion system, takes the SLS process to another level”, says Justin Pringle, Managing Director of Prototype Projects.
When material, finish and color play a key role in the coloring result
In order to develop a unique color, all the settings that might influence the coloring result have to be determined. The material and the surface finish are the key elements that are taken into account.
DyeMansion used both a material called PA2200, and its PolyShot Surfacing (PSS) finish, a proprietary blasting process it developed itself. Different materials or another finish of the surface can therefore have an impact on the final color.
