“We are excited to release two new 3D printers at CES this year,” said Jos Burger, CEO of Ultimaker. “The Ultimaker 2+ and Ultimaker 2 Extended+ are results of countless collaborations and insightful feedback we have received from the Ultimaker community.”
The machines are the successors of the current Ultimaker 2 and Ultimaker 2 Extended and are available for purchase immediately. They feature the following upgraded features on both machines:
• Interchangeable Nozzles: Freedom to change nozzles in a matter of seconds makes working with different materials easier, eases maintenance and gives the possibility to choose between highly detailed prints or high speed prints.
• Optimized Print Results: With the inclusion of a more powerful geared feeder, printing materials are less likely to skip.
• Enhanced Surface Quality: Improved surface quality with excellent results due to improved cooling.
Ultimaker’s mission is to provide the tools to empower professionals, educators and makers to discover, learn and create more efficiently by offering and supporting a full infrastructure of 3D printers, software and materials strengthened by integration with key industry partners such as Solidworks, Spark, the 3MF Consortium and leading global manufacturers of materials.
Ultimaker’s annual revenue doubled in 2015, which is a result of professional users and an increase in the education sector. Now, 35% of Ultimaker’s sales come from clients in North America/The United States. During 2015, Ultimaker printers have been adopted by several leading North American universities. Ultimaker’s goals and vision position it to be the top desktop 3D printing company in North America in 2016.
