Combine Selective Laser Sintering with High Speed Milling

The Matsuura LUMEX Series features a powder bed metal additive manufacturing (AM) platform with subtractive capability. The series combines selective laser sintering (SLS) with high-speed milling (HSM), commonly called hybrid AM.

Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25

The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 metal laser sintering hybrid milling machine relies on one-machine, one-process manufacturing of complex molds and parts by fusing metal laser sintering (3-D SLS) technology with high-speed milling technology. The machine enables production of complicated parts through total manufacturing by digital engineering, using 3-D data.

The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 is capable of processing parts up to 256 mm x 256 mm x 185 mm or optionally 256 mm x 256 mm x 300 mm.

Avance-25 mainly serves the high value, high accuracy mold and die market. Dies and molds with complex geometries can be fabricated in one piece with high accuracy. 3-D cooling channels can be incorporated into molds in the single set-up, thereby increasing cooling efficiency and enabling high-cycle injection molding.

Matsuura LUMEX Avance-60

The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-60 is designed for larger, high value-added parts for industries such as aerospace and automobile. It is capable of processing parts up to 600 mm x 600 mm x 500 mm. The machine is also outfitted with a high power 1 kW fiber laser to reduce sintering time.

The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-60 provides an increased speed of powder distribution to the table top surface along with a fully integrated automatic powder supply, collection and recycle system. Metal powder materials are distributed automatically into the sintering chamber without operator contact, eliminating powder dispersion in the work area and preserving a safe environment. Unused powder is automatically collected, sieved and recycled.
