DyeMansion, a German company specializing in post-processing solutions for polymer 3D prints, is increasing access to its technologies with the Black Diamond Finishing Hub. The new offering is essentially an accessible online platform for DyeMansion post-processing services, comprising its vapor smoothing, blasting and coloring processes.

With the new Black Diamond Finishing Hub, DyeMansion promises post-processing within just two days for powder bed 3D prints made from PA 11 and PA 12 materials (to start). In the interest of making its post-processing service available to as many users as possible, DyeMansion has decided that there will be no minimum order value for the Black Diamond service platform and it will process parts made on any polymer powder bed machine.

Among the services offered are DyeMansion’s Vaporfuse Surfacing solution, a chemical vapor smoothing process that gives 3D prints a smooth finish comparable to injection molding parts; Polyshot Surfacing, a mechanical blasting technology that results in a scratch-resistant, semi-gloss finish; and its DM60 Black machine which uses DeepDye Coloring technology to give parts a professional black finish.

The new service offering for SLS post-processing will initially be undertaken at DyeMansion’s existing facilities in Munich, Germany and Austin, Texas. However, the company revealed its plans to introduce a global production partner network within the year to accelerate turnaround times for part finishing for clients around the globe.

In addition to the newly launched Black Diamond Finishing Hub, DyeMansion will also continue to operate its On-Demand Finishing service, which offers a broader range of services—including compatibility with more materials (such as rigid and flexible polymers) and a greater range of color and finish options—but has a slightly longer processing window (two to four days) and has a minimum order value of €50 for black parts and €150 for other color finishes. The idea with the Black Diamond Finishing Hub is to widen its customer base and increase who can benefit from its professional finishing capabilities.
“The Black Diamond Finishing Hub is a finishing service for everybody who wants to have the highest quality powder bed parts that are available on the market,” said Felix Ewald, CEO of DyeMansion. “Since no CAPEX investment is needed to use this service, it’s the easiest way to get access to industrial finishing. This platform exemplifies our commitment to innovation and customer-centric solutions, enabling businesses of all sizes worldwide create products with industrial 3D printing.”
In other recent news from DyeMansion, the company formalized a partnership with HP to establish its post-processing solutions as the preferred option for HP customers pursuing large-scale AM production of end-use parts. This latest announcement follows years of cooperation between the two companies and seeks to integrate both companies’ solutions for greater efficiency.
