Meet the new Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle

  • News

What if – in a single purchase – you could massively boost your 3D printing productivity and confidence?

Well today, we're announcing a product that can do exactly that!

The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle is a unique production solution that takes the hassle out of 3D printing when using an extended range of materials. This means that busy engineers and designers gain more freedom to focus all day on doing their best work.

The Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle is made up of three breakthrough devices:

  • Ultimaker S5 – our award-winning, composite-ready dual extrusion FFF 3D printer

  • Material Station – a 6-spool prefeeder with humidity control that automatically switches between materials

  • Air Manager – a top enclosure with a material-matching adaptive EPA filter

These integrate seamlessly to overcome the common challenges associated with FFF material handling and storage – making it easier to unlock demanding 3D printing applications that deliver real business value.

Below, we’ll cover all the details on how the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle works and how it could make your desktop 3D printing workflow easier and more efficient.

More materials, less hassle

The Ultimaker S5 Material Station was designed and tested to be an automated material delivery workhorse.

Its 6 spool bays give you huge capacity for bigger prints, more small batches, or more flexibility in your setup – which means higher uptime and fewer manual operations.

Each bay is NFC-enabled and compatible with:

  • All Ultimaker filaments (not including 350-gram spools)

  • All materials from leading brands with predefined settings in Ultimaker Cura Marketplace

  • Including glass or carbon-reinforced materials

  • Any other third-party 2.85 mm filament with a spool that fits

The result? Unprecedented flexibility for the widest range of 3D printing applications.

Loading materials into the Ultimaker S5 Material Station
Quickly and easily front-load up to six spools in any order – even during a print job

5 steps to load 3D printing materials

That task which used to take minutes now takes seconds:

  1. Open the door

  2. Put the spool in any empty bay

  3. Insert the filament into extruder holes 1 or 2

  4. See LED confirmation

  5. Close the door and get back to more important work

To remove a spool: Press eject and the filament fully retracts with a clean, sharp tip – ready for next time.

Now, the hardest part of material loading is finding the end of the filament. (Where did it go again...?)

By making these little actions as simple and intuitive as possible, the Ultimaker S5 Material Station reduces the time it takes to handle material, letting you change spools when it suits you and get on with more important tasks.

This accelerates innovation and reduces the need to employ a dedicated 3D printing operator.

Unleash true 24/7 3D printing

The Ultimaker S5 Material Station has been tested and tested to earn your trust when automatically switching materials. It takes care of every spool swap before, after, and even during a print job – so you don’t have to.

Each bay features end-of-spool detection with maintenance-free, abrasive-resistant prefeeders. So, when one spool runs out, it automatically switches to the next without extra friction, without tangling – without fail. You can even reduce waste by starting a print with a used spool, and trust that the material will be switched at exactly the right time.

Better yet: this automation is made more powerful when combined with Ultimaker Connect. Constantly aware of all the possible loaded material configurations, our free printer management software will assign the next print job from the queue, and even maximize uptime by prefeeding the correct material before the job starts.

As a result, you’ll be surprised how much time you save when all those small, repetitive actions are no longer part of your daily grind. Instead, that time can be better spent on valuable tasks worthy of your attention.

And since the Ultimaker S5 Material Station is designed to be left unattended, it has the spool bays, build quality, and reliability to deliver true 24/7 production capacity.

Always-fresh 3D printing materials

Every decision during the Ultimaker S5 Material Station's development was made to deliver materials in optimal condition for 3D printing.

Humidity and dust...the Ultimaker S5 Material Station defeats them both. Its silica gel extracts moisture and automatically regenerates, keeping the fully enclosed chamber below 40% relative humidity – even in outside conditions of up to 70% humidity.

By removing the risk of moisture absorption, the polymer doesn’t degrade over time. The filament is kept pristine for longer as if spool never left its packaging. This results in higher quality prints with a higher print success rate – with less chance of human error.

So that's how materials are handled below the Ultimaker S5. But what about that device on top?

Print more materials with greater peace of mind

If you thought that the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager was just a cover for the Ultimaker S5...think again!

This seamlessly integrated device efficiently solves any in-house air quality concerns you may have.

What difference does the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager make to air quality? Independent researchers found that it removes up to 95% of all ultrafine particles.

For more details and data from this research, check out our white paper on 3D printer emissions and air quality:

Get the white paper

While we're proud of that percentage, it does more than simply check a health and safety box, and more than avoid the need for extra workplace ventilation...

It gives you the confidence and peace of mind to choose materials without compromise. So now you can create the parts and models your business needs, with the mechanical properties your applications demand – knowing that any air-quality risk is dealt with.

So how does it work?

Sssh! We're filtering...

The Ultimaker S5 Air Manager's features a quiet 140 mm (5.5 inch) fan. This has been optimally positioned to create an inside-out airflow, which pulls the maximum volume of air through a high-efficiency air filter.

And that filter is big, making it effective for longer – before Ultimaker Connect tells you when to replace it.

You can easily install the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager without tools, via a sturdy bracket and a single cable. All other functionality is handled by (and regularly improved via) Ultimaker S5 firmware and Ultimaker Cura software.

This includes material-matching fan speeds. Now embedded into Ultimaker Cura's predefined print profiles, they ensure that the fan and filter operate at optimal efficiency the whole time you're printing.

Keep your prints safe, as well as your workplace

Finally, by fully enclosing the build chamber, the Ultimaker S5 Air Manager stops anyone interrupting a print by touching hot or moving parts. And it maintains a more stable print environment inside the printer.

While we've found this slightly improves print quality for some materials, it certainly gives you more freedom 3D print where you want. In drafty locations, near air conditioning units – the choice is yours, knowing that the build chamber is protected from unwanted airflows.

Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle brings industrial production power to the desktop

Conclusion: Industrial production power on your desktop

We're excited by this introduction.

More than any other Ultimaker product to date, it delivers our vision of the ultimate desktop experience: hassle-free 3D printing thanks to automated material handling, air filtration, and filament humidity control.

Bigger than that: it’s the next step toward our ambition of placing the power of digital distribution and local manufacturing within reach of any business.

But most of all?

We’re excited to see how customers will use the Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle to simplify their workflows and free up more time to explore fresh ideas, optimize designs, and unlock demanding applications.

And we’re convinced that doing so will increase their cost-savings and drive more innovation in the process.
