Matsuura’s Lumex Avance-25 metal laser sintering hybrid milling machine fuses laser sintering with high speed milling technology. Using 3D data for digital engineering, the machine serves the precision mold and die market. Complex geometries can be fabricated in one piece, shortening lead times and reducing manufacturing costs.

Internal geometry can also be incorporated into molds, such as 3D cooling channels that increase cooling efficiency and enable high-cycle injection molding.
