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.

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.

  • The Challenges of Machining Glass-Filled Plastics

    Plastics reinforced with glass present more machining variables to manage than conventional metals. This shop has developed a process to overcome those challenges and has become more adroit at short-run work along the way.

  • The 400° Difference

    Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
