Ultimaker S5 Air Manager
3D 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.
While we're proud of that result, 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.
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.
