This White Paper examines the DyeMansion DM60 machine for post processing powder bed fusion parts compared to custom fashioned pot dyeing machine.
When powder bed 3D printing was mainly used for prototyping, pot dyeing became a pretty popular method. For this process cooking pots and conventional textile dyes were mainly used. With the evolution of 3D printing from prototyping to serial manufacturing the required standards for 3D printed products are changing as well. Whoever produces for the automotive, aerospace, fashion or medical industry knows how demanding these standards are.
Included in the Pot Dyeing White Paper
This white paper compares traditional dyeing versus automated DeepDye Coloring, their functionalities and fields of application. The results show how manual pot dyeing and the industrial DDC process differ and thus affect the part properties. Therefore, various parameters, such as light and heat resistance (in colloquial language often named UV-stability), color fastness and scratch resistance were evaluated on different materials.
