Innovative DeepDye Colouring (DDC) technology offers unlimited color choices and tailor made color recipies.

As a DM60 user you benefit from the largest color database. In addition to over 170 RAL and standardized colours the color matching also offers the possibility of creating individual tones for you – from corporate colors to seasonal trend colours and individual skin tones.

DM60 Cartridge

Exact colour formulas for a reproducible process

For a long time, dyeing 3D printed plastics was a manual, uncontrollable process. the DM60 takes 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, cartridges are available in four different sizes. These are equipped with an RFID chip that transfers all process parameters QM ready to the DM60.

DyeMansion part finishes

ISO certified colors

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 the 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.
