(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.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
