Matsuura’s LUMEX technology is researched in two published academic abstracts co-authored by Matsuura LUMEX Application Engineer, Josh Soost.
Benchmarking of 316L Stainless Steel Manufactured by a Hybrid Additive/Subtractive Technology
Abstract: This research study investigated the hybrid processing of 316L stainless steel using laser powder bed (LPB) processing with high-speed machining in the same build envelope. Benchmarking at four laser powers (160W, 240W, 320W, and 380 W) was undertaken by building additively with machining passes integrated sequentially after every ten deposited layers, followed by the final finishing of select surfaces.
Evaluation of Maraging Steel Produced Using Hybrid Additive/Subtractive Manufacturing
Abstract: Hybrid manufacturing is often used to describe a combination of additive and subtractive processes in the same build envelope. In this research study, hybrid manufacturing of 18Ni-300 maraging steel was investigated using a Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 system that integrates metal additive manufacturing using laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) processing with high-speed machining.
