Dyeing System for 3D printing I 3DColor

Ideal to color PA11, PA12, PA6, TPU parts

The 3DColor dyeing system has been developed by a large distributor of EOS SLS and HP MJF 3D printers, to meet the demands of black shades. With its innovative technology, the 3D Color machine makes it easy to color 3D printed parts in PA 12, PA 11, etc ...

Thanks to its touch screen and its wide range of pre-programmed colors, the machine can dye up to 2 kgs of parts at once, in its 78 liter tank.

They come out with a uniform color quality, and dyed up to 200μm deep, without affecting the properties of the parts.

Increases life of 3D printed parts

Ideal also for production series

The 3DColor dyeing system uses a very simple technique and yet so reliable: the water color!

  • RELIABLE: No chemical process, no complex handling! The 3DColor machine is built to last: mecano-welded steel structure and stainless steel basket. The parts are dyed in colored water, and the machine can self-clean (except when using black color). It's as easy as that. And it can continue for years.
  • SAFETY: The entire system is secured to avoid any risk of splashing water outside the machine. The pieces come out unchanged in the mechanical properties.

  • ECONOMIC: Since 3DColor uses water and not a chemical process, the cost of operation is very low.
  • INTUITIVE: The 3DColor comes with pre-loaded programs in the user interface and you are free to add your own programs.

Frequent questions & answers

All you need to know - No surprise!

What is the dye process?

The 3DColor system use regular water in which some coloring powder is mixed. 3D printed parts will be placed in the stainless-steel basket, which will slowly spin in the colored water. On the user's screen, you can choose preset dye cycling depending on the color and the quantity of parts.

What kind of parts can this machine dye?

All small & large parts 3D printed using plastic powder (typically SLS and MJF). The 3DColor system is ideal to dye parts in black, and in about 15 other colors.

What about bio-compatible parts ?

The 3DColor is not using a chemical process, the parts are 'washed' with colored water. Therefore, the parts are not contaminated during the dyeing process. With the machine, a MSDS report is provided with the user manual.

How deep can the machine dye ?

In the regular process, the color can dye as deep as 200 µm.

Does it consume lots of water ?

Depending on the quantity of parts to dye, you can set the program in small, medium and large volume. Small for low quantity of parts would consume less water than medium or large. When dyeing the max capacity, the machine would consume up-to 190 liters of water per cycle.

What dyeing color is available ?

The black color is the most requested by our color, especially for those running HP MultiJet Fusion machines. The regular colors such as blue, red, green, yellow, orange, pink, etc are also available. We may also be able to supply exact RAL color to your choice.
