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.
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 chance 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.
