Matsuura Launches Metal AM Production Services

Matsuura, a provider of high-speed milling and metal 3D printing solutions, has announced that its Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) Service Bureau is now offering quick-turn prototyping, producing a wide range of 3D metal printed and machined parts, including unique functional prototypes and low- to mid-volume production runs.

"With Matsuura's metal 3D printing, the production of high-volume mold components with conformal cooling and integrated porous venting minimizes the need for traditional EDM processes and provides significant savings in the production of molded plastic components," said a company spokesperson. "Customers can lower their capital equipment investments for tooling and molding machines while reducing mold cavitation requirements and accelerating ROI."

"Products and shapes previously impossible to manufacture-including ultra-deep ribs, 3D mesh, hollows, free-form surfaces and porous structures-can now be produced using LUMEX Technology," said Tom Houle, Director, LUMEX, NA.

Matsuura USA established an AM Center to promote the use of metal 3D printed parts as a solution to continuing supply chain challenges and delays.

"The LUMEX team in our AM Center, along with our collaboration with the Customer Solutions team and machine designers in Japan and Germany, will help customers quickly realize the benefits of AM," Houle said. "Our team's insight into the process and the technology will assist in the modification of traditional designs into suitable 3D metal printing."

According to the company, Matsuura's LUMEX Avance-25 and Avance-60 machines minimize mold assembly; create enhanced mold performance; reduce lead time; and perform high-precision machining without EDM.

"Matsuura customers are seeing the value that comes with implementing AM technology. Multiple customer case studies show 25% to 45% reductions in cycle time," Houle said.

"Metal 3D printing can benefit tooling, injection molding, CNC machining and die casting processes and operations. We will work with you throughout the entire 3D printing process to enable our customers to fully realize the benefits throughout the life of their products," Houle concluded.
