Ultimaker CPE is used to print strong, dimensionally stable functional prototypes. It is resistant to chemicals and extremely strong with good interlayer adhesion. It is also ideal for environmentally-sensitive and bio-contact applications, with low levels of UFPs (ultrafine particles) and VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
With a tensile stress at yield of 50 MPa and a tensile stress at break of 28 MPa, Ultimaker CPE is a very strong material. It has been formulated to be several times stronger than ABS, so that complex shapes can be created with excellent dimensional stability. CPE is particularly popular with product designers due to this. Another key reason for CPE’s widespread application is the fact that CPE is available in a wide range of colours, including grey scale and transparent, for professional-looking models.
Now, we regularly get asked what the difference between CPE and CPE+ is, by makers who are looking for a functional filament. The key difference between them is that Ultimaker CPE has a higher tensile and flexural strength than Ultimaker CPE+, while CPE+ has increased temperature and impact resistance. CPE is also available in a wide range of colours, while CPE+ is only available in black, white and transparent.
Ultimaker started life out in the Netherlands. Founded in 2011, they are an old head relatively speaking in the world of desktop 3D printing. Their quest to innovate and create the best 3D printers has led to this point: they are now one of the world’s leading desktop 3D printer manufacturers in both uptake and reputation.
The popularity of the Ultimaker brand is also down to proven use cases. Industries benefitting from an Ultimaker include aerospace, architecture, art, automotive, engineering, fashion, jewellery, manufacturing, medicine, product design and education. Ultimaker is also one of the few brands with a committed DIY fan base. These ‘Makers’ are ambassadors who live and breathe everything Ultimaker. You can find them on forums.
Wherever reliability, uptime and quality is desired in a desktop 3D printer, we recommend Ultimaker because we know they work. With an Ultimaker you can make accurate, industrial-grade parts, time and again.
We are an authorised Ultimaker reseller which means we are authorised by Ultimaker to sell and support their 3D printers and all related products. We sell the whole Ultimaker 3D printer range and can recommend the best model for your use case. We also sell supplies, materials, and spares to keep your 3D printing game strong.
