(AMSTERDAM, NL)- Ultimaker, a leading 3D printer manufacturer, announces the launch of the Ultimaker Go and Ultimaker Extended, two cutting-edge desktop 3D printers, pre-order from March 2015 and available from April 2015. Built with premium parts and materials, these 3D printers bring imagination to life with high definition printing technology. The new Ultimaker Go and Ultimaker Extended follow the success of the top-rated Ultimaker, which was awarded best in shootout 2015 from Make Magazine and best consumer product at the 3D Printshow global awards 2014.


"After receiving recognition and awards from the leaders in the industry, we were inspired to make these new versions of the ground breaking Ultimake, supporting our vision to aim for the ultimate 3D printing experience," says Siert Wijnia, CEO of Ultimaker, "The Ultimaker Go is a compact printer that is easy to use as a starting printer while the Ultimaker Extended has added a ten centimeter larger build volume for users who want to create larger and more complex projects."

The two newest desktop 3D printers in Ultimaker's collection include the following:

Ultimaker Go (€1195,- / $1450,-) The mighty mini 3D printer: This compact 3D printer is the perfect solution for makers who want to start with 3D printing on a premium level. This lightweight Ultimaker² Go offers a high-quality product with a friendly interface which makes it an ideal starter machine for new users. Through its slimmed design, together with its dedicated portable packaging, it is the perfect 3D printer for the maker on-the-go and allows people to use it easily in different contexts. Because of its compact design and allowing a quick start the Ultimaker² Go is not equipped with a heated bed. You can now start your print even faster.

Ultimaker Extended (€2495,- / $3030,-) Think large, Print Big: For those who just want a little bit more than the best. The Ultimaker Extended boasts some of the highest speed and accuracy found on any desktop 3D printer, with speeds of up to 300mm/s, 0.02mm layer resolution and a 10 cm (4 inches) larger build volume. This larger desktop printer makes a statement at any workspace with its sleek design.

The launch of these two new products is accompanied by an addition to the Ultimaker website that provides a stage for community members to share their projects and get inspiration from others. This addition gives 3D printing enthusiasts the unique opportunity to get insight on upcoming Ultimaker projects, interact with Ultimaker experts and influence decisions on new experimental products, contributing to the whole Ultimaker 3D printing experience.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
