St. Paul, MN (September 6, 2018) — Matsuura Machinery USA, Inc. announces your opportunity to meet with CNC Machine Tool and Additive Manufacturing authority, Craig St. John at IMTS 2018.
St. John will discuss how the traditional manufacturing business model is transforming and provide strategies for companies to quickly acknowledge and respond to these new competitive challenges.
“Preserving the integrity of the production process with less human supervision, companies are becoming increasingly automated. While employment numbers may have trended down, manufacturing output in the United States is up since machines are more efficient, completing complex tasks and delivering superior cost efficiencies,” St. John advised.
St. John has more than 40 years in the machine tool and automation industry and has comprehensive and authoritative knowledge in all areas of CNC Machine Tool, Automation and Additive Manufacturing.
Matsuura Machinery USA will occupy a 5,000 sq. ft. region in the South Hall, Booth 338148 in McCormick Place.

The IMTS model is equipped with a 15k RPM dual contact JIS/BT #40 high-torque grease lubricated spindle, 500MM diameter table and a 60 tool chain.
Matsuura USA will highlight production flexibility with the MAM72-35V 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center with 320 tools. This palletized 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center features high-accuracy complex machining and provides accurate 5-axis machining for complex work to meet the need for unmanned operation.
The IMTS model is equipped with a 20K RPM high-speed dual contact JIS/BT #40 oil lubricated spindle, 32 pallet tower system and a 320 tool matrix. 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 IMTS model is equipped with a 15k RPM dual contact JIS/BT #40 grease lubricated spindle, 30 tool drum and 290 PSI coolant pump.
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.
The IMTS model is equipped with a 20k RPM dual contact JIS/BT #40 grease lubricated spindle, 12 pallet changer and a 330 tool matrix.
Matsuura will pair the LF-160 Linear Motor Machine with collaborative robotic system for high-precision machining dies, molds & optical parts. This will showcase the machine’s high-speed, high-precision and high-accuracy.
The IMTS model is equipped with a 46k RPM HSK-E40 oil lubricated spindle, single pallet system and a 50 tool chain.
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 Director added.
