3DPRINTUK installs new DyeMansion DM60 for more color 3D printing options

3DPRINTUK, a pioneer in production 3D printing and London’s leading service provider of polymer PBF 3D printing processes, now offers multiple new color options through a £50K investment in a new DyeMansion DM60. The expansion is part of 3DPRINTUK’s continuous effort to increase the range of services and materials for its customers.

This latest initiative comes hot on the heels of the recent introduction of the PrimePartST flexible PEBA material, and the announcement of a shot peening service for low, medium, and high volume parts to enhance surface finish.

“During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, 3DPRINTUK made a pragmatic decision that we would use this time to reach out to our community to find out what they wanted from us,” Nick Allen, CEO at 3DPRINTUK revealed.

“The feedback – he added – was extensive and highly informative, and we reacted by further refining our 3D printing services in order to offer an expanded and versatile palette of options for our customers. Introducing PEBA means we can now provide a flexible, rubber-like material in addition to nylon 12 and shot peening means we can provide a superior surface finish than ever before to our nylon parts.”

DyeMansion DM60The Dyemansion DM60 machine completely automates what has until recently been a manual, uncontrollable coloring process for 3D printed parts. The dyes are able to penetrate to a depth of 200 microns, and the process is totally reproducible, traceable, and works for every part geometry. Constant R&D at 3DPRINTUK is focussed on increasing the numbers of colors available, having been fully tested at the company’s London facility.

“Our investment in the new DyeMansion machine, and our traditional exhaustive testing, means that we can now provide parts in blue, green, red and yellow, with more colors to follow,2 Allen added. “We have now invested over £100K in dying systems, ensuring that we respond to customer demand and continue to provide the most comprehensive PBF production capabilities in the UK and further afield.”

Initially, the new color options will only be available via 3DPRINTUK’s economy service but will be extended to express delivery later in the year.
