DyeMansion Powerfuse S Series Benefits

DyeMansion Powerfuse UI

Intuitive User-friendly Interface

All versions of the Powerfuse Series provide an intuitive user-friendly interface with various user-levels. Pre-installed programs with specifically developed process parameters can be controlled. Your individual process parameters can be configured and saved easily, enabling a fast adaption to each specific application.

Automatic part handling such as automatic unloading of your processed parts supports the integration into the DyeMansion Print-to-Product workflow and the compete Additive Manufacturing chain.

DyeMansion vapor parts

Green vapor polishing technology

The non-toxic VaporFuse VF47 EcoFluid is safe to use (no PFAS, no CMR and no vPvM/PMT). Operating the Powerfuse S does not require protective clothing against chemical hazards.

No additional equipment or reconstruction of installation site needed. Vapor polished parts treated with the Powerfuse S can be used for consumer, medical or food & beverage applications.

DyeMansion Workflow

Automation technology from Siemens

The Powerfuse S series blends right into the factory of the future with state-of-the-art automation technology from Siemens. Through
DyeMansion Data Connect, the machine integrates with your digital store floor with ERP/MES connectivity and standardized communication
protocols such as OPC-UA (optional 360° Digital Services feature).

Monitor and analyze all data surrounding the state and condition of the systems for performance & process optimization using the DyeMansion Workflow Center (optional 360° Digital Services feature).

 

DyeMansion improved parts

High-quality surfaces with improved properties

VaporFuse Surfacing (VFS) delivers injection molding-like parts, reducing surface roughness by up to 70%. Parts are sealed, water repellent, and achieve washable surfaces that inhibit bacteria growth. Increased mechanical properties benefit delicate structures and soft materials.

Achieve an elongation at break increase by up to 200% depending on your material. The Powerfuse S can smooth inner channels which is unique in the industry and key for pipes or tubes.
