RS adds 3D printers for small businesses and professionals

By eeNews Europe

Ultimaker S3 takes up little desk space and uses a fused-filament-fabrication (FFF) print method for high-quality and composite-ready performance. The is intended to offer a favourable entry-point for businesses wishing to try 3D printing. The printer has a dual-extrusion printhead with a unique auto-nozzle lifting system and swappable print cores. It features a 230 x 190 x 200mm build volume with layer resolutions down to 150–60 microns through the optional 0.25mm nozzle.

The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle is intended to provide the user with professional 3D-printing capabilities. It is capable of printing to the engineering requirements needed for prototypes up to the manufacturing of industrial-grade components and parts. The bundle contains the Ultimaker S5 printer and the S5 Air Manager and Material Station.

Air Manager provides a closed inside-out airflow for the S5 printer for safety. It optimises print quality and provides a safe physical barrier to the print area. The unit is able to filter up to 95% of the ultra-fine particles (UFPs) that are emitted during printing.

S5 Material Station integrates with the Ultimaker S5 printer to assist material handling. The material station allows higher volume production runs by loading up of six material spools and up to 4.5kg of material inside the humidity-controlled chamber. Smart features include composite-ready feeder wheels, filament flow sensors, and automatic switching when a material spool runs out.

The S3 and S5 printers are sold with a software suite that includes: Ultimaker Cura for print preparation; the Ultimaker Connect management software and Ultimaker Cloud for remote printing. The Air Manager and Material Station will also be separately sold by RS.
