DEEPDYE COLORING WITH DYEMANSION DM60
FROM STANDARDIZED DATABASE TO TAILOR-MADE RECIPES
Our innovative DeepDye Coloring (DDC) technology offers unlimited color choices. As a DM60 user you benefit from the largest color database. In addition to over 170 RAL and standardized colors, which are ready-to-use without additional development costs and waiting times, our color matching also offers the possibility of creating individual tones for you – from corporate colors to seasonal trend colors and individual skin tones. The fully automatic cleaning program of the DM60 allows a flexible use and a fast color change.
FOR A REPRODUCIBLE AND TRACEABLE PROCESS GLOBALLY AVAILABLE
For a long time, dyeing 3D printed plastics was a manual, uncontrollable process. We take care of this process and offer a global supply of exact color recipes down to the microgram. This enables an industrial process that could not be easier for the user and can be reproduced any time. The power lies in our color cartridges, which we manufacture depending on base material, finish and desired color. Based on the volume of your parts, we deliver cartridges in four different sizes. These are equipped with an RFID chip that transfers all process parameters QM ready to the DM60.
FOR END-USE APPLICATIONS ACROSS ALL INDUSTRIES
The demands for 3D printed products are constantly increasing. Our ISO-certified colors make us a trusted technology partner for biocompatible eyewear or medical orthoses as well as for light- and heat-resistant automotive interiors. With our extended ColorsX line, we are responding to industry specific requirements and are always looking forward to new input for the further development of our DeepDye Coloring (DDC) technology.

How DeepDye Coloring Works
MANUAL POT DYEING VS. INDUSTRIAL DEEPDYE COLORING
- Hardly controllable, manual process
- No certified hardware
- Strongly limited color options
- Colors fade quickly under UV light or heat
- No official certifications
- Industrial, traceable & automated process
- DM60 & Add-on solutions as certified hardware
- Largest color variety on the market
- Special solutions for industries, e.g. Automotive or Neon X Colors
- Certified & proven colors for high-end manufacturing
COLORS APPLIED WITH POT DYEING FADE QUICKLY
Almost every 3D printed end-use product is exposed to UV light and heat. This is where the strengths and weaknesses of the dyeing process becomes apparent. In the test, the conventional pot dyeing with textile dye shows a much higher color fading than parts dyed with DyeMansion DM Black 01.

DYEMANSION PRINT-TO-PRODUCT WORKFLOW
Our technology starts where the industrial 3D printer stops – from 3D printed raw part to high-value finished product in three hours. The combined three-step DyeMansion Print-to-Product workflow enables scaling from prototyping or small series to high-volume manufacturing and thus closes the manufacturing gap.
