Matsuura Lumex Avance hybrid additive machine tool Click image to enlarge

The Lumex Avance-60 is the newest generation of Matsuura's hybrid additive CNC machine tool, the Avance-25.

The ability to "grow" a metal component in layers with complex internal features and mill those internal features as the layers are added to give a perfect surface finish are what makes the Lumex a distinctive and remarkable production machine tool. The company says it offers designers and manufacturers a route to designing what they can imagine, and not be limited by the restrictions of their current production methods, strategies and machines.
