Ultimaker this week introduced more than its new Ultimaker S3 desktop 3D printer with award-winning touch-screen display. The company also unveiled the new Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle, which we discuss below.
S5 Pro Bundle
The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle seamlessly integrates the new Ultimaker S5 Air Manager and the new S5 Material Station. Each complementary component targets a specific challenge in 3D printing raising the S5’s overall abilities substantially.
The Air Manager unit provides a closed, inside-out airflow enabling 3D printing in a quasi clean-room state; it filters out 95 percent of all ultrafine particles created while printing and thus enables a wider range of materials to print with safely.
The Material Station delivers a true 24/7 dual extrusion workflow, enabling engineers to focus on engineering and design and not managing the 3D printing process. Six bays have abrasive-resistant pre-feeders and silica gel extracts moisture and automatically regenerates, keeping the enclosed chamber below 40 percent relative humidity, even when the room humidity is up to 70 percent.
“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.”

The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle costs $9,100 USD and is available starting October 18, 2019 through Ultimaker’s network of global partners.
