DyeMansion appoints Matsuura Machinery as UK reseller

German post-processing company DyeMansion has added Matsuura Machinery Ltd. to its reseller network. The announcement makes Matsuura the first authorized reseller of both HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers and DyeMansion finishing systems in the UK.

Based in Coalville, England, Matsuura Machinery is a distribution service that offers a range of manufacturing platforms, including CNC milling, CNC turning and additive manufacturing. In the latter category, the company distributes two LUMEX systems and HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 4200 system. Now, through the collaboration with DyeMansion, Matsuura will also supply the company’s three-stage Print-to-Product workflow, which consists of the DyeMansion Powershot C, Powershot S and DM60.

Roger Howkins, Managing Director at Matsuura Machinery Ltd. commented on the distribution agreement, saying: “Our association with DyeMansion completes our technical offer to the UK market in 3D printing—any shape, any size and now any colour, making us the one stop applications and products specialist for companies investing in UK plastics additive manufacturing.”


UK customers—especially those based in Leicestershire—will now be able to consult Matsuura Machinery for their 3D printing consulting, testing and benchmarking needs. The company’s showroom now boasts HP’s 4200 3D printer and processing station along with DyeMansion’s automated post-processing solution.

DyeMansion’s three-stage solution begins with a part cleaning solution that takes just 10 minutes to complete. The technology used for the cleaning stage ensures that printed part’s are not damaged and prepares the part for the next finishing steps.

Following the cleaning stage, the printed part is subjected to a surfacing treatment using the PolyShot Surfacing (PSS) technology. This step results in a part with a homogenous surface quality that is scratch-resistant and long-lasting.

The last step—and DyeMansion’s real claim to fame—is the colouring stage, during which printed parts can be coloured from a range of 170 RAL hues. This process, as DyeMansion emphasizes, is completely automated, safe and repeatable.

“We are glad to announce our partnership with Matsuura and welcome the team,” said Greg Gracki, Sales Partner Manager at DyeMansion. “Supplying them not only with our technology, but also with the appropriate training and consulting knowledge, we are sure that the partnership will be beneficial for all three sides, Matsuura, DyeMansion and above all, for the existing and future customers.”


My partner and I approached David at Re3dtech with our project and were greeted with kind and caring service. Throughout the last couple of months we have placed several orders in varying size and were even able to sit down with David and the owner to discuss our needs as a small business. Through this sit down we saw their passion for assisting both small and large clients in achieving their goals. We even had a hiccup with a batch of prints that was immediately addressed and remedied with precision and care. I almost don't want to recommend these guys because I feel like I have stumbled upon a hidden gem in 3D printing services and selfishly want to keep it to myself. Jokes aside we will be continuing our business relationship with the folks there and look forward to growing our order quantities and business with their help.
Re3DTech was instrumental in helping us get our product, Stroba™, to market faster! We needed a technology that could do snap fits and looks and feels as close the injection molded part as possible, and Re3D Tech was there for us. We used SOLIDWORKS Make to get in touch originally, upload models directly, and sign an NDA directly with their excellent team. It was really simple and easy to use their quoting tool as well. Excellent prices, excellent lead times, and superior quality are perfect words to describe our experience with Re3DTech. We went through many prototypes for Stroba™, and we at Goodfriend Innovations™ use Re3DTech for our other rapid prototyping jobs to help get our additional productions out to market faster than the competition. 5 Stars
I provided RE3DTECH three laser scanned ".stl" files for 3-D printing of prototypes. I used their on-line quote and file delivery process. The file acceptance and resultant quote were returned quickly. The parts were received at the quoted time. The parts are quite complex with many holes, angles, curvatures and notches. Each of the parts came out identical to the scanned parts dimensionally and passed the form/fit/function test in the upper level assembly. RE3DTECH has a high quality business process and produces high quality products. I will use them for future prototyping projects and recommend RE3DTECH.
Re3dtech is one of the most honest and reputable companies we have done business with. We decided to look into options for getting parts made in the USA for the retail market. It was awesome to find a local company with humble staff looking to provide their services meeting our criteria, not to mention meeting the Re3tech crew face to face and checking out their operation. Peter was very honest, knowledgable about design. Peter's creative element made working with him a great pleasure. Jim's flexibility was a breath of fresh air and greatly appreciated. CentralSound is proud to scratch the surface with Made in the USA parts in the retail market now, thanks to Re3dtech. Hope to do more business with them in the future.
Re3dtech has consistently delivered the best service I have ever received in the industry. Their response time is unmatched and they always stand by their parts and quality. They regularly make me look like an all star at my job.
It is always a pleasure to have a vendor that provides quality, experience, and always shows as much care for your order, and your product as you do!
