What if, in a single purchase, you could massively boost your 3D printing productivity and confidence?
Well, today that product is available!
We’re excited to launch the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle: A unique production solution that, by taking the hassle out of 3D printing when using an extended range of materials, gives busy engineers and designers more freedom to focus all day on doing their best work.
The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle is made up of three breakthrough devices:
Ultimaker S5 – Ultimaker’s award-winning, composite-ready dual extrusion FFF 3D printer
Air Manager – a top enclosure with a material-matching adaptive EPA filter
Material Station – a 6-spool pre feeder with humidity control that automatically switches between materials
These integrate seamlessly together to overcome the common challenges associated with FFF material handling and storage – making it easier to unlock demanding 3D printing applications that deliver real business value.
Unleash true 24/7 3D printing
The Ultimaker S5 Material Station has been tested and tested to earn your trust when automatically switching materials. It takes care of every spool swap before, after, and even during a print job – so you don’t have to.
Each bay features end-of-spool detection with maintenance-free, abrasive-resistant prefeeders. So, when one spool runs out, it automatically switches to the next without extra friction, without tangling – without fail. You can even reduce waste by starting a print with a used spool, and trust that the material will be switched at exactly the right time.
Better yet: this automation is made more powerful when combined with Ultimaker Connect. Constantly aware of all the possible loaded material configurations, our free printer management software will assign the next print job from the queue, and even maximize uptime by prefeeding the correct material before the job starts.
As a result, you’ll be surprised how much time you save when all those small, repetitive actions are no longer part of your daily grind. Instead, that time can be better spent on valuable tasks worthy of your attention.
And since the Ultimaker S5 Material Station is designed to be left unattended, it has the capacity, build quality, and reliability to deliver true 24/7 production capacity.
3D print more materials with greater peace of mind
If you thought that the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager was just a cover for the Ultimaker S5… think again! This seamlessly integrated device efficiently solves any in-house air quality concerns you may have.
What difference does the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager make to air quality? Independent researchers found that it removes up to 95% of all ultrafine particles.
While we’re proud of that result, it does more than simply check a health and safety box, and more than avoid the need for extra workplace ventilation…
It gives you the confidence and peace of mind to choose materials without compromise. So now you can create the parts and models your business needs, with the mechanical properties your applications demand – knowing that any air-quality risk is dealt with.
So how does it work?
Sssh! We’re filtering…
The Ultimaker S5 Air Manager’s features a quiet 140 mm (5.5 inch) fan. This has been optimally positioned to create an inside-out airflow, which pulls the maximum volume of air through a high-efficiency air filter.
And that filter is big, making it effective for longer – before Ultimaker Connect tells you when to replace it.
You can easily install the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager without tools, via a sturdy bracket and a single cable. All other functionality is handled by (and regularly improved via) Ultimaker S5 firmware and Ultimaker Cura software.
This includes material-matching fan speeds. Now embedded into Ultimaker Cura’s predefined print profiles, they ensure that the fan and filter operate at optimal efficiency the whole time you’re printing.
Keep your prints safe, as well as your workplace.
Finally, by fully enclosing the build chamber, the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager stops anyone interrupting a print by touching hot or moving parts. And it maintains a more stable print environment inside the printer.
While we’ve found this slightly improves print quality for some materials, it certainly gives you more freedom 3D print where you want. In drafty locations, near air conditioning units – the choice is yours, knowing that the build chamber is protected from unwanted airflows.
Conclusion: Industrial production power on your desktop
We’re excited by this introduction.
More than any other Ultimaker product to date, it delivers Ultimaker’s vision of the ultimate desktop experience: hassle-free 3D printing thanks to automated material handling, air filtration, and filament humidity control.
Bigger than that: it’s the next step toward an ambition of placing the power of digital distribution and local manufacturing within reach of any business.
But most of all?
We’re excited to see how customers will use the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle to simplify their workflows and free up more time to explore fresh ideas, optimize designs, and unlock demanding applications. And we’re convinced that doing so will increase their cost-savings and drive more innovation in the process.
Take the next step to accelerate your innovation.
