German automated post-processing supplier DyeMansion is ready to launch new 3D printing publish processing tools at Formnext 2019.
Having accomplished beta testing of its VaporFuse Surfacing (VFS) expertise inside its Print-to-Product workflow, the corporate shall be presenting Powerfuse S, the for this course of, on the present subsequent month.
A chemical-based course of, VFS expertise smooths and glosses polymer-based elements. It was launched in 2018 as “the primary clear vapor expertise for 3D printed elements” in its beta-phase for supplies comparable to PA12 and TPU (SLS) and PA12 (MJF).

Rivaling injection molded elements
VFS is a closed, automated course of, able to making 3D printed elements water repellent and straightforward to scrub, frequent properties of injection molded elements. “In the course of the course of, the floor is dissolved by condensed vapor,” defined DyeMansion’s R&D Chemist Dr. Alena Folger on the introduction of the expertise, “Thus, the polymer chains have a sufficiently excessive mobility and rearrange on the floor.
“The general floor space and the floor vitality is diminished. Concurrently, the half is smoothed. Upon eradicating the solvent, the polymer hardens once more.”
The method is the second surfacing possibility from DyeMansion, and acts as a substitute for PolyShot Surfacing (PSS), a mechanical matte-finishing course of, that additionally allows the addition of vibrant colours throughout the RAL spectrum.

The complete DyeMansion Print-to-Product workflow gives 3D printed half cleansing, surfacing and coloring for laser sintering (LS) and HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) processes. The Powershot C, delivers automated half cleansing, whereas the Powershot S makes use of PSS expertise. In accordance with the corporate, the newly developed VFS Powerfuse S system is appropriate for each exhausting and versatile polymer elements.
Guests to Formnext 2019 can see the Powerfuse S and DyeMansion’s different publish processing applied sciences in Corridor 11.1, stand D61 from November 19th to the 22nd.
