Introducing the Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2 Extended+ 3D Printers
Ultimaker has just launched 2 new 3D printers at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) Las Vegas 2016. The new printers revealed today are the Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2 Extended+, which are the latest iterations of the hugely popular and award-winning Ultimaker 2 family of 3D printers.
These two new successors to the Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2 Extended were developed based on the company's extensive experience and know-how in 3D printing technology, as well as the close collaborations with Ultimaker's own user community. According to Ultimaker's CEO Jos Burger, "The Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2 Extended+ are results of countless collaborations and insightful feedback we have received from the Ultimaker community. Both printers feature crucial upgrades based on what our customers are looking for in a 3D printer.”
The new printers will feature the following upgrades:
Geared Feeder: Powerful geared feeder improves the already impressive print quality and reliability. The innovative feeder design also enables user to change filament and choose the correct tension setting for the filament easily
Interchangeable Nozzle: Smart print head design allows print head nozzle to be swapped quickly and without hassles. This feature not only allows user to choose and change the nozzle based on the preference of either highly detailed or extremely fast prints, it will also eases the process of maintenance
Optimised Airflow: Newly re-designed fancaps will channel airflow to your prints precisely, improving the cooling and achieving even better overall print quality
These new upgrades will make the most advanced 3D printers from Ultimaker even better, and continue its position as one of the best desktop 3D printers available on the market right now.
Ultimaker has also revealed that they are working with key industry partners such as Solidworks, the 3MF Consortium, Spark, as well as leading materials manufacturer to continue their mission in developing and supporting a full infrastructure of 3D printers, software and materials, and hence providing the best tools for professionals, educators, and makers around the world to explore, learn and create more efficiently. More innovations will be revealed by the company in 2016.
Ultimaker has doubled its revenue in 2015 as a result of increased adoption of its printers by professionals from a wide range of industries as well as educators, the increased sales have also been boosted by their successful expansion into the North American market. “We have seen great success this year with professionals and educators who can optimize the modular components of our infrastructure for their own specific needs,” says Jos Burger. “Ultimaker has seen an expansion of sales within industries such as Aerospace, Automotive, Healthcare, Energy and Education especially within engineering, design and manufacturing in the past year. We look forward to see how Ultimaker’s global community will continue to grow and help it create the products of the future.”
