Manage 3D print materials and air quality with one unique production solution
SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 25 September 2019 - Ultimaker,
the global leader in desktop 3D printing, today unveiled the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle. The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle consists of the award-winning Ultimaker S5, the new Ultimaker S5 Air Manager and Ultimaker S5 Material Station, which seamlessly integrate with each other.
This unique solution is tested to be left unattended 24/7 and significantly
improves the 3D printing workflow and productivity, giving engineers the
flexibility to spend more time on doing their best job and less time managing
and monitoring their desktop 3D printer.
Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle
The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle transforms professional workflows through automated
material management, boosting productivity, flexibility and confidence to
unlock more industrial focused applications.
The Ultimaker S5
Air Manager provides a closed, inside-out air flow for
the Ultimaker S5, leading to a better controlled environment inside
the printer and filters out up to 95 percent of all ultrafine particles created
while printing. This reduction enables a wider range of materials
to safely print with and results in a safer work
environment as it creates an effective physical barrier that stops
anyone touching hot or moving parts. It offers professionals peace of mind when
printing, while reducing the risk of print interruptions.
- Ultimaker S5 Material Station
The Ultimaker S5
Material Station redefines filament storage and delivery, enabling a
true 24/7 dual extrusion workflow that supports higher productivity and
consistency of the 3D printing output. The Ultimaker S5 Material
Station allows users to load filament spools -- including glass and carbon fiber
composites -- in 6 bays that have abrasive-resistant pre-feeders.
Constant supervision is no longer needed, and material can easily be
uploaded at the front of the printer in seconds, not minutes. Silica gel
extracts moisture and automatically regenerates, keeping the fully enclosed
chamber below 40 percent relative humidity -- even in outside
conditions of up to 70 percent humidity.
The Ultimaker S5,
launched in April 2018, forms the heart of this future-ready solution. With its
highly reliable print results, larger build
volume, and award-winning, intuitive touch
interface, the Ultimaker S5 is still the ultimate professional
solution for printing larger functional prototypes, manufacturing tools, and
"The Ultimaker S5
Pro Bundle truly embodies the meaning of hassle-free 3D printing," says
Paul Heiden, Senior Vice President of Product Management
at Ultimaker. "Our goal is to make 3D printing easy,
reliable and accessible in order to accelerate the world's transition to
digital distribution and local manufacturing. We have heard many professional users express
a need for a more enclosed 3D printing environment and we
understand the desire for good, dry material storage and smart material
handling in order to reduce the risks of humidity, dust and human error.
The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle tackles it all and completes our vision
of the ultimate office 3D printing experience. This solution enables
users to take their 3D printing applications to a new level of quality and
consistency, with greater flexibility, efficiency and confidence."
da Silva, VP Additive Manufacturing, DSM
"The inclusion of
the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager
and Ultimaker S5 Material Station with the
successful Ultimaker S5 is another step toward taking additive
manufacturing into production environments. The additional functionality will
allow engineering materials, such as those of DSM, to be printed more safely
and consistently. This will bring additive manufacturing technology within
reach of many more players and help us manufacture tomorrow."
Collet, Director Marketing - Business Unit Customized Polymer Materials, Lehmann&Voss&Co.
"The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle is an excellent new product that
enables more reliable production of 3D printed parts. Our 3D printing
materials are dedicated to industrial applications. This means consistent
quality of both materials and printing processes are essential. As a material
producer, we are especially excited about the Ultimaker S5 Material
Station, which reduces environmental influences on materials."
Roger Sijlbing, Head of
Sales - Additive Extrusion Systems, BASF 3D Printing Solutions
BASF, we develop engineering materials for additive manufacturing to enable
industrial solutions. Whether you're on a shop floor, R&D lab, or an
office, a safe environment is key. The added value of
the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle is the ability to manage a
material's environment during printing, and we have experienced first-hand
the influence moisture uptake and airflow can have on the mechanical properties
of a printed part. These new solutions are great additions
to enable industrial applications with FFF printing."
The Ultimaker S5 Pro
Bundle is available starting October 18, 2019 through Ultimaker's network of global
third-party material print profiles for the Ultimaker S5 Pro
Bundle will be made available in the Marketplace
in Ultimaker Cura. For
