Ultimanufacturer, a 3D printing device developer of Geldermalsen, Netherlands, was one of most companies launching new products at the new Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that ran January 6-9, 2016. Dating back to 1967 and now billed as the world’s biggest gathering of the leaders of consumer electronics, it’s the ideal setting to commence a new product to the public. Ultimanufacturer took the opportunity to unveil the new Ultimanufacturer 2+ and Ultimanufacturer 2 Extended+.

Similar to a few of its competition, Ultimanufacturer has created an online community around the company and its products through forums, blogs, a social media presence and a page on its website on that users can share and download 3D print files.
Jos Burger, Ultimanufacturer CEO, explained that, “The Ultimanufacturer 2+ and Ultimanufacturer 2 Extended+ are results of countless collaborations and insightful feedback we have attained of the Ultimanufacturer community. Both printing devices showcase crucial upgrades based on what our customers are looking for in a 3D printing device.”
Three of the main upgrades of the earlier model Ultimanufacturer 2 and Ultimanufacturer 2 Extended printing devices are listed in a new Ultimanufacturer news release.Interalterable Nozzles: The faculty to easily alter between 0.25, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 mm nozzles donates the Ultimanufacturer 2+ and Ultimanufacturer 2 Extended+ a leg up on a lot of comparable 3D printing devices. A lot of print nozzles are created so they can print both high-resolution and high-speed prints. But, you can’t always get the most of both worlds. This means you can donate up a little at one end of the spectrum or the other. Whilst it prints decently for both high-speed and high-resolution and it may be excellent at one or the other, usually it’s not excellent at both. Having the faculty to swap out nozzles for the specific type of print you want is a massive advantage. This showcase in addition manufactures it simpler to work with multiple types of filament.Geared Feeder: Most filament-based 3D printing devices with that I have experience use a gear inside the extruder assembly itself to pull the filament through the extruder. Having a geared feeder right at the filament spool that allows for you to pick the correct pressure for the specific type of filament with that you are printing should not just manufacture swapping out your filament simpler, but should in addition assist extend the life of the extruder itself.Optimized Airflow: New fancaps assist aim the airflow right at a lower place the nozzle and equally of both sides. This assists to rad the filament uniformly and to ensure constant layer thickness and adhesion.The Ultimanufacturer 2+ has a create volume of 223 X 223 x 205 mm and retails for $2,499 while the Ultimanufacturer 2 Extended+ has a create volume of 223 X 223 x 305 mm and retails for $2,999. Both printing devices can handle PLA, ABS and CPE filaments. They in addition come with an SD card, USB cable, the print preparation software Cura, the Ultimanufacturer app, a starter spool of silver PLA and an astounding 12-month warranty and lifetime assist.
Ultimanufacturer’s revenue doubled of 2014 to 2015. The company credits that to an increase in both pro and educational users.
“Ultimanufacturer has seen an expansion of sales inside industries such as aerospace, car, health care, energy and education, especially inside engineering, create and building in the past year,” Burger explained.
It is building a splash here in the US; 35 percent of Ultimanufacturer’s sales now come of the United States. For additional information on Ultimanufacturer or to purchase an Ultimanufacturer 3D printing device, visit the Ultimanufacturer website.
