In November 2021, the new miniColor coloring machine was launched. This machine is a perfect entry-level machine for the treatment of smaller batches of additively manufactured parts made of polymers.
Outstanding finishing qualities, high reproducibility, simple operation and a very attractive price-performance are just a few advantages of the miniColor. The process steps are predefined with 5 selectable programs, so that an easy introduction to this industrialized application technology is possible.
The miniColor is a compact plug-and-play machine. The closed system can be operated at operating temperatures of up to 130°C and up to 3 bar operating pressure, depending on the application requirements. In addition, the new circulation system guarantees a high quality, level dyeing result.
ADVANTAGES OF miniColor
Outstanding dyeing results because there is no excess of dyes
+ The pores cannot be clogged during the dyeing operation – the parts are dyed evenly and then rinsed off effectively.
+ “Bleeding” during later use or deployment of the dyed product is thus prevented. Particularly in the medical sector, in the styling area, and for visible parts in vehicle cockpits, this is a fundamental requirement.
Superior reproducibilities due to precise formulations
+ Thanks to state-of-the-art control technology, the dyeing line is fully automated. The dye formulation, defined once and tailored to the respective material, guarantees a stable dyeing result that can be reproduced any number of times – irrespective of the number of parts.
High efficiency with sustainable use of materials and resources
+ Through the correct one-time calculation of dye amounts, no unnecessary costs arise for surplus dye. At the same time, elaborate and superfluous rinsing processes are avoided.
+ The user can freely select the dyes and the corresponding dye suppliers.
+ the miniColor convinces with its attractive price-performance ratio
+ financing is available for 6, 12 and 24 months
Good environmental compatibility
+ If dyes of hazard class group 2 (harmless materials) and almost complete exhaustion dyeing (i.e., not saturation dyeing) as well as appropriate rinsing operations are used, the wastewater from the dyeing process can be discharged via the sewer system in accordance with regional requirements.
