The development of Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc.’s Lumex Laboratory and demonstration facility within the existing corporate headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota is complete. The facility has begun installing Matsuura Lumex Avance machines. The facility joins the three other Lumex Centers of Excellence locations in Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom. The Matsuura Lumex Series, manufactured for more than ten years, is now offered in North America with sales and technical support provided by Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. The Matsuura Lumex Series is a line of powder bed, metal additive manufacturing (AM) platforms with subtractive capability. The Matsuura Lumex Series combines selective laser sintering (SLS) along with high speed milling (HSM) commonly called Hybrid AM.

The series’ 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 (3D SLS) technology with high-speed milling (HSM) technology. The machine enables production of complicated parts through total manufacturing by digital engineering using 3D data. Read more about the Lumex Avance-25.

The Matsuura Lumex Avance-60 can process parts ranging to 600 mm x 600 mm x 500 mm. The machine also has a high power 1kW fiber laser that significantly reduces 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.
