12. Septem­ber 2018

Munich, Germany — Unter­neh­mer­tum Venture Capi­tal Part­ners (UVC Part­ners), btov Part­ners (btov Indus­trial Tech­no­lo­gies Fund) and AM Ventures have inves­ted in DyeM­an­sion GmbH as part of the appro­xi­mately EUR 4.5 million finan­cing round for the company.

Munich-based DyeM­an­sion offers indus­trial solu­ti­ons for surface finis­hing and colo­ring of addi­tively manu­fac­tu­red plastic parts. The entire solu­tion deve­lo­ped by DyeM­an­sion is refer­red to as a ‘print-to-product’ work­flow and covers all steps of the finis­hing process from raw part to finis­hed product. Already trus­ted by more than 400 custo­mers for color and finish solu­ti­ons, inclu­ding many 3D prin­ting service provi­ders and manu­fac­tu­rers from various indus­tries such as auto­mo­tive, life­style, retail, medi­cal and spor­ting goods, DyeMansion’s effec­tive ‘print-to-produce’ work­flow enab­les them to offer their custo­mers high-quality addi­tively manu­fac­tu­red products. As a result, the Munich-based company was able to quickly estab­lish itself as the world market leader in this field. DyeMansion’s solu­ti­ons are now compa­ti­ble with all powder-based tech­no­lo­gies, such as those from EOS, HP, 3D Systems and Prod­ways, and can be used regard­less of geometry.
