Custom Mold and Design (CMD) and Matsuura USA are collaborating in applying the Matsuura Lumex technology for the mold industry. CMD also offers contract Lumex production on the company’s Lumex Avance-25 metal laser sintering hybrid milling machine, a powder bed metal additive manufacturing (AM) platform with subtractive machining capability.

Sometimes referred to as a “one machine, one process” system, the Matsuura Lumex series enables production of complex, challenging parts through total manufacturing by digital engineering using 3D data. The process produces accurate parts from metal powders that are melted and sintered using a laser while surfaces are precisely milled at high speeds. These machines feature both high-speed milling and laser sintering capability.

3D cooling channels can be incorporated into molds on the Matsuura Avance-25 in the single setup, increasing cooling efficiency and enabling high-cycle injection molding with better quality and precision. CMD also purchased a Matsuura MX-850 five-axis vertical machining center, for large and complex machining tasks.
