Send us your parts and choose a color. When doing so, it is important to observe the rules of our coloring service.
After the reception of your parts, they'll be dyed in your desired color. The penetration depth of the color is usually at 0.2 millimeters with our color dyes.
To achieve a high surface quality, the surface of your parts is compacted with our Powershot S blasting system.
We also optionally offer a coating method that provides water and dirt repellent properties. In addition to a brilliant shine, this process promotes the longevity of the dye.
Parts are processed and sent back to you within two business days. By prior arrangement, we also offer express processing.
Besides our 17 standard colors, almost every RAL and Pantone color can be achieved on powder-based AM parts with our technology. But the final appearance and color availability is determined by your raw material. White parts allow for almost the whole color spectrum and build the base for our unique color database. Grey parts (e.g. HP Multi Jet Fusion) are more limited on darkish tones, different shades of grey or deep black.
Color variety is an important prerequisite for a technology that promises to redesign manufacturing processes of the future. With the DM60 coloring machine, it’s possible to dye reproducible RAL and Pantone colors on AM plastics for the first time – always depending on the previous surface finish of the parts. In order to show the corporate design of your company on a powder-based AM part, individual color developments are indispensable. These custom or corporate colors can also be developed based on color samples.
Due to varying materials and surface treatments, it is a great challenge to be able to reproduce the entire color spectrum. We are able to develop colors on different materials through various techniques, thanks to our in-house developed software and a lot of experience gained in the meantime.
Since our coloring solution is accompanied by a chemical process and reacts with the material, custom color developments need to be done directly on your parts. Even small changes in the color recipe or surface finish can have a huge impact on the final result of the color. Standard colors as well as custom colors can be ordered in all of the four cartridge sizes (S, M, L, XL) in our customer portal.
Upon request, we can send you one of our samples and provide you instant rates for the finishing of your AM plastics.
