We have been waiting for it and it is there! The Dutch manufacturer has unveiled the new member of its family of 3D printers and strengthens Integrated Solution with New Industrial-Grade Filament and Mobile App.
Called Ultimaker S5, the 3D printer can fit into existing workflows and provides accurate and reliable results. With a build volume of 330x240x300 mm, the Ultimaker S5 is the solution for printing functional prototypes, manufacturing tools, and end-use parts.
Ultimaker has proven itself and has gained a true place on the market through its development strategy and the quality of it partnerships be it in terms of products, sales, or 3D printing for education.
Just as the other 3D printers of the company, this one fully integrates hardware, software and materials configuration, as well as optimal settings alignment, designed for professional users that require full geometrical freedom capabilities, industrial-grade material properties, repeatability, high uptime and an integrated workflow.
As far as other features are concerned, layers are ensured by the bed leveling which compensates the print bed while printing and allows unattended use of the Ultimaker S5.
Different materials can be used: PLA, advanced engineering plastics like Nylon and PC. The Ultimaker S5 includes a closed front system, and from fall 2018, an anodized buildplate.
The free Ultimaker App enables users stay updated on the print’s progress from a phone or tablet where ever they are. User are notified when a print job is ready or when a printer needs special attention or maintenance. However, it should be noted that it will be available on May 15th for Android and iOS and works with Ultimaker S5 and Ultimaker 3 3D printers.
Prof. Axel Herrmann, CEO of Composite Technology Center GmbH an Airbus Company: “When your work is shaping the future of aerospace, innovation is key. So at CTC, we use 3D printing not only to create extremely useful manufacturing aids and prototypes for Airbus and other customers, but also as a learning tool to prepare the workforce for tomorrow. Because of the ease of use of the Ultimaker S5 and the low costs involved with Ultimaker FDM 3D printing, we can easily make several iterations before reaching a final, even better design and still shrink lead times from weeks to days. Working with the Ultimaker S5 definitely unleashes even more creativity among our Engineers.”
