The LUMEX Avance-25 performs the sintering of complicated mold dies without splitting them, thus eliminating assembly and adjustment stages and making it possible to produce mold dies with no dimensional errors that may be caused by conventional assembly process.

The LUMEX Avance-25 significantly reduces the required designing and production time of mold dies. Manufacturers can expect a reduction in molding time but also quality improvements in their molds from the 3D placement of water pipes in the mold dies and porous sintering.

Peripheral devices
  • Fume collector:
    The fume collector eliminates fume (metal vapor agglomerate) and odor generated at the time of laser processing. The fume collector eliminates flux, oil, and adhesive ingredients, thus preventing clogging.

  • Nitrogen gas generator:
    The nitrogen gas generator is used to generate nitrogen to be filled into the chamber in laser sintering process. The nitrogen gas generator can provide nitrogen from the atmosphere within a short time whenever required.

  • Chiller:
    The chiller is used to cool the laser oscillator and prevent equipment damage resulting from heat radiation.
