High-speed Spindle（LUMEX Avance-25）
The LUMEX Avance-25 incorporates Matsuura's time-proven high-speed, high-rigidity (Grease Lubrication) that rotates at 45,000 min-1 and a 1/10 taper special BT20 tool shank.
Tool magazine（LUMEX Avance-25）
The LUMEX Avance-25 incorporates a tool magazine that can accommodate 20 milling tools. The LUMEX Avance-25 also incorporates an automatic measuring device to measure the length of a tool when the tool is mounted to the spindle. The tool magazine makes it possible to set up tools externally when the chamber is fi lled with nitrogen so that work effi ciency will be improved.
Linear motor drive（LUMEX Avance-25）
The LUMEX Avance-25 incorporates a linear motor provided with Matsuura's unique control technology to perform high-speed feeding (X/Y: 60 m/min (2.36 ipm) and 30 m/min (1.18 ipm)) and attains high-precision machining.
Sintering table（LUMEX Avance-25）
Metal laser sintering is processed at this stage. The upper surface of the table is heated to alleviate rapid temperature changes resulting from laser sintering, thus increasing the sintering precision of the LUMEX Avance-25.
Yb Fiber Laser（LUMEX Avance-25）
The LUMEX Avance-25 incorporates a high-efficiency Yb fiber laser of high beam quality. The beam diameter can be reduced to realize high-power, high-resolution processing. The Yb fi ber laser in combination with Matsuura's galvanometer mirror performs finer sintering. Furthermore, the Yb fiber laser ensures ease of maintenance.
Squeezing unit（LUMEX Avance-25）
The squeezing unit is used to supply sintering material (metal powder) to the sintering table. It is possible to specify the operating range of the squeezing unit, which enables speedy squeezing without waste.
CCD camera（LUMEX Avance-25）
The LUMEX Avance-25 incorporates a high-precision CCD camera with dedicated software. Matsuura's visual sensing with feedback technology realizes unprecedentedly high-precision laser sintering.
Oxygen concentration and temperature display（LUMEX Avance-25）
The metal powder in the chamber becomes very hot during the sintering process. Therefore, the chamber is fi lled with inert gas, such as nitrogen. The concentration and temperature of the oxygen in the chamber are strictly controlled and displayed on the control panel. The LUMEX Avance-25 is provided with a safety function that will alert errors, if any, and stop the operation of the LUMEX Avance-25.
