Hybrid Machine Fuses Laser Sintering with Milling
IMTS 2018: Matsuura’s Lumex Avance-25 metal laser sintering hybrid milling machine is a powder bed metal AM platform with machining capability.
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.
An introduction to 3+2 machining: how it works and what it can do for your machine shop.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
Years of trial and error combined with the appropriate machining technology allow this company to produce custom parts made of alumina, zirconia, boron nitride and other advanced ceramic materials. One example of key machining technology is a five-axis machining center used exclusively to produce the complex, tightly toleranced geometry that fire-hardened workpieces require.
