St. Paul, MN (May 31, 2018) — Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. revealed the company’s exhibition plans for the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago’s McCormick Place September 10-15, 2018.

Matsuura Machinery USA will occupy a 5,000 sq. ft. region in the South Hall, Booth 338148 in McCormick Place.

Matsuura USA will showcase the following at IMTS 2018:

    The NEW MX-330 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center with 10 pallets and 90 tools

    The NEW MX-520 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center with 4 pallets and 90 tools

    The MAM72-35V 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center with PC32

    The VX-660 Vertical Machining Center

    The H.Plus-400 Horizontal Machining Center with PC12

    The LF-160 Linear Motor Machine with Robot Cell

    The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 Metal Laser Sintering & Hybrid Manufacturing Machine

“At MATSUURA USA, we continue to pursue new innovations and technology for the future.   Our ground-breaking design, development and manufacture of high quality machining centers continues today with our two newest 5-axis machines that maximize new technology and provide automation solutions—the MX-330 PC10, equipped with 10 pallets and 90 tools and MX-520 PC4, equipped with 4 pallets and 90 tools,” said the Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. Marketing Manager. 

Matsuura USA will highlight production flexibility with the MAM72-35V 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center with 320 tools. This machine features high-accuracy complex 5-axis machining with one-chucking to meet the need for a cost-effective unmanned operation. The MAM72-35V will be exhibited in Matsuura USA Distributor, Yamazen Inc.’s Booth: 338640.

Matsuura, the pioneer of vertical machining technology, will exhibit the company’s latest heavy weight vertical machining center, the tough and robust, VX-660 at IMTS 2018. This cost-effective, heavy-duty, manufacturing solution boasts high-speed, high-precision and high-accuracy within a compact footprint.

The planned exhibition of Matsuura’s H.Plus-400 Machining Center with PC12 will demonstrate Matsuura solutions to enhance production, minimize cost and increase part quality. The H.Plus horizontal machining centers are highly productive machine tools with high speed, high rigidity and high precision. The H.Plus series delivers long periods of reliable, unmanned operation, high accuracy and exceptionally efficient production.

Matsuura will pair the LF-160 Linear Motor Machine with a Robotic System to showcase the machine’s high-speed, high-precision and high-accuracy.  The Matsuura LF-160 was developed for ultra-precision machining dies, molds and optical parts with a focus on small work piece processing and unmanned operation. The LF-160’s spindle with ultimately minimized dynamic runout and high resolution achieves high-speed and high-precision.

At IMTS 2018, Matsuura will also exhibit for the first time, their hybrid additive-manufacturing machine, the Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25. The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 metal laser sintering hybrid milling machine is a powder bed metal AM platform with subtractive machining capability. The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 combines selective laser sintering (SLS) along with high speed milling (HSM) commonly called Hybrid AM.

The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 relies on one-machine, one-process manufacturing of complex molds and parts by fusing metal laser sintering (3D SLS) technology with high speed milling technology. The Hybrid technology creates a “finished” part with machined surface finish and accuracy, without inducing the additional variation caused by multiple machine set-ups and part handling.   The machine enables production of complicated parts and molds through total manufacturing by digital engineering, using 3D data.

“The Matsuura LUMEX Avance-25 achieves the highest accuracy in part fabrication since metal powders are melted and sintered via laser, while surfaces are precisely milled at high speeds. 3D cooling channels can be incorporated into molds in the single setup, thereby increasing cooling efficiency and enabling high-cycle injection molding with better than ever quality and precision, reducing costs and improving efficiency,” the Matsuura USA Marketing manager added.

Make your plans to visit Matsuura USA at IMTS to discover innovative technology and manufacturing solutions including: 5-axis, vertical, horizontal, linear motor, multi-tasking CNC machine tools and machines with a powder bed metal AM platform with machining capability.
