Munich-based startup DyeMansion GmbH, already well-known in the 3D printing industry for their unique ‘Print-to-Product’ workflow, have now secured a $5 million series A funding round by Unternehmertum Venture Capital, btov Partners, and AM Ventures to expand their global business and extend their portfolio. Their next milestone will be “achieving injection moulded surface quality on 3D-printed polymer parts,” the company stated in a press release.

DyeMansion founders Felix Ewald & Philipp Kramer

DyeMansion, founded in 2013 by Felix Ewald and Philipp Kramer under the name Trindo, specialise in the post processing of 3D-printed laser sinter parts. Rather than using lacquers or other dyeing processes, the company’s unique in-house coloring process allows for geometrically independent colouring, reducing human overhead to a minimum. In 2015 EOS founder Dr. Hans J. Langer took on a partnership in the firm as a business angel and shareholder.

CEO and co-founder Felix Ewald is confident that the new funds and the strategic support of UVC Partners, btov Partners and AM Ventures will help DyeMansion to grow and to reinforce their status as a technology leader in the industry.

DyeMansion claims to have worked with some 400 clients across the world that benefit from their technology. Among them, global players like BMW, Daimler, Under Armour, HP, Shapeways, Materialise, FKM and many more.

“Thanks to our customers and partners we have learned a lot about the demand for the digital factory of the future. With the new funds, we will expand our R&D capacity in order to raise the bar in post-processing automation and to provide the best possible end-use part finish for every application. Our new system for getting completely smooth surfaces on AM plastics will demonstrate DyeMansion’s capabilities once again”, explained Philipp Kramer, CTO and co-founder of DyeMansion.

Robert Gallenberger, Partner at btov Partners commented: “This investment perfectly matches the strategy of the new btov Industrial Technologies Fund to back ambitious entrepreneurial teams focusing on hardware and software innovations with industrial use cases.”
