The New DM60 for Prosilas 

Industrial coloring of 3D printed parts.

 

3D printing is making great strides in the industrial sector, thanks in part to new automated finishing and coloring systems for prototypes and finished components.

And at Prosilas, we’re not just standing by!

In fact, we’ve expanded our machinery lineup with the DM60 DyeMansion automated coloring system, thereby closing the post-production cycle already present in our company.

“We already had two other DyeMansion machines for finishing, the Powershot C and S models, so deciding to stick with this brand for automating coloring was the best choice,” says Vanna Menco, CEO of Prosilas. “Thanks to our collaboration with Energy Group (Digital Manufacturing Partner and a company within the SolidWorld Group), we identified and built the ideal package for our needs, and we are fully satisfied with it. Previously, coloring was done manually, which required time, attention, and constant operator presence. Now we can offer our customers a better and repeatable product even for industrial-scale production.”

The advantages of industrial coloring

The DyeMansion industrial coloring system is a great addition for Prosilas, as it offers advanced technology that allows for vibrant and long-lasting colors to be achieved quickly on a wide range of 3D printed materials: Pa2200, PA12 ALU, Pa12GF, Flame Retardant, and TPU. This results in parts that can be compared, even from an aesthetic standpoint, to those produced with injection molding.

This is a significant improvement in quality that enables us to meet demands for a variety of applications in the consumer goods, packaging, lifestyle, industrial, and automotive sectors.

 

Our customers will be able to obtain 3D printed parts with excellent surface finishing, such as internal parts of cars, housings or parts of industrial machinery, objects for setups and customizations, and end-use objects with perfectly repeatable colors even for large runs.

“With a complete workflow using DyeMansion systems, we can now definitely satisfy more application areas. In particular, we can move from the world of prototypes and pre-series to that of industrial production, even regarding finishing,” concludes Vanna Menco. “We can now offer high aesthetic level 3D elements, satisfying sectors such as consumer goods, packaging, lifestyle, and automotive. Obtaining internal parts of cars, housings or parts of industrial machinery, objects for setups and customizations, and end-use objects with perfectly repeatable colors even for large runs is a significant improvement in quality for us and our offering.”

DyeMansion: a solution for our customers

A repeatable, automated, and reliable coloring process offers our customers a less expensive alternative to manual coloring. That’s why we have confirmed DyeMansion, a German company specialized in coloring and finishing of 3D printed parts, as an official supplier.

Their high-precision DM60 technology allows faithful color reproduction, offering a wide range of available shades.

Armotia + Prosilas Case History

Prototypes of electric motorcycles: the support of 3d printing.

Prosilas played a key role in the realization of the Armotia project, a company based in Osimo that is dedicated to the design and production of electric motocross and enduro motorcycles. Thanks to the collaboration between these two companies, it was possible to create innovative and high-quality prototypes that represent a true revolution in the world of motorcycling.

 

Armotia: the project

ARMOTIA presents DUE X and DUE R, the first two electric series motorcycles with two electronically controlled distribution drivetrain.

Our motorcycles have exceptional traction characteristics that will give you amazing riding sensations allowing you to experience every type of track, on and off road, as never before.

Besides all this, ARMOTIA offers standard intelligent features and possibilities. Such as an integrated smartphone to record videos, check performance, save telemetry data, and share all your routes. Or the possibility to personalize the most appealing parts of the fairings with a 3D printer, to make the most special motorcycles even more “special” that you have ever seen. Because if it is true that two wheels move the soul, with ARMOTIA you will discover that two-wheel drivetrain definitely does it better.

Prosilas’s expertise

Armotia has relied on 3D printing technology for the production of parts and components necessary for the creation of the DUE R and DUE X motorcycle prototypes. In this context, Prosilas has provided valuable support thanks to their expertise in materials and finishes for 3D objects.

Thanks to the consultancy provided by Prosilas, Armotia was able to choose the most suitable materials for the realization of their prototypes, ensuring a high level of resistance and surface finishing: PA 12 ALU and glass-filled polyamide (PA12 GF) for fairings and shells.

PA12 aluminium filled is a very resistant material that presents a good surface finish, making it ideal for the realization of parts that require high-quality finishing. Moreover, this material can be easily painted, allowing for further customization of the prototypes.

On the other hand, the glass-filled polyamide is a highly resistant material, which is perfectly suited for the production of parts that require greater robustness, and also CNC treatments.

Thanks to Prosilas’ consultancy, Armotia was able to choose the most suitable material for each specific application.

This synergy shows how 3D printing and the consultancy of specialized companies like Prosilas can make a difference in the realization of innovative and high-quality projects.

 

 

Post-processing treatments: painting

In addition to advice on the optimal choice of materials, we offer advice on which post-process treatment is the most suitable to achieve the best possible result.

The painting service allows to obtain parts in different customizable colors with a surface finish similar to that of the parts produced with injection molding. Our finishing department is able to replace the entire range of RAL colors and special colors according to customer requests.

Painting is an important aspect to consider in the production of parts in 3d and it gives an added value allowing to get an aesthetically appealing prototype and very close to the final product.

Thanks to advanced technologies and materials, the prototypes and series produced in Prosilas can also have matt, glossy and metallic finishes or resistant to UV rays or to hydrocarbon.

Innovative Applications in Industrial Tooling:

Custom Mounting Fixtures with PA12 ALU 3D printed

The tooling sector is undergoing a revolutionary transformation thanks to 3D printing technologies and SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) additive manufacturing.

In particular, the combination of freeform design and advanced materials such as PA12 ALU loaded aluminum is enabling the efficient and innovative production of tailor-made equipment for the industrial sector

Freeform Design:

Freeform design represents a crucial step forward, allowing the production of custom parts on demand without the need to maintain a warehouse.

This flexibility is particularly advantageous for the production of dedicated tools for special processes or for complex assemblies.

SLS additive technologies enable the creation of strong and lightweight geometries in a short period, revolutionizing the way industrial tools are conceived and produced.

Practical Application – Assembly Guides:

A concrete example of this innovation can be found in the Prosilas facilities, where assembly guides have been produced using SLS technology.

These guides are crucial for centering and drilling on mechanical parts, enabling more precise and efficient production processes.

Companies can benefit from exceptionally strong and lightweight geometries, contributing to the improvement of efficiency and precision in production processes.

Prosilas remains at the forefront in this continually evolving sector, providing customized solutions through its expertise in the use of advanced materials and industrial 3D printing technologies.

PA12 ALU

PA12 ALU  loaded with aluminum, has established itself as one of the most utilized materials in the manufacturing industry for 3D printing.

Parts produced with SLS technology and PA12 ALU exhibit excellent mechanical performance, high rigidity, abrasion resistance, and good thermal dissipation.

The possibility of surface finishing treatments and post-processing CNC machining provides additional customization options.

Material Characteristics:

  • Good mechanical strength
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Good thermal dissipation
  • Possibility of surface finishing treatments and post-processing CNC machining
