Optical Processing Machine

Lasermeister101A

More convenient and easier
metal modeling.

More convenient and easier metal modeling. The Lasermeister series is an easy- and safe-to-use machine that Nikon developed based on the concept of "Devices that anyone can use" so that anyone could easily try its metal modeling technology.

Introductory video

This video introduces the product concept of Nikon's Lasermeister series of optical processing machines, the design and product features based on that concept, and metal processing and other applications of the series.

  • *The product that appears in this video is the entry model, the “Lasermeister 100A.”

New product: Lasermeister 101A

The Lasermeister 101A, which is equipped with a five-axis modeling system and is capable of using more types of modeling powder, has been added to Nikon's Lasermeister series of optical processing machines as an advanced model. The Lasermeister 101A provides a higher modeling speed. With its enhanced modeling flexibility, the Lasermeister 101A offers customers a much broader range of possibilities in the field of metal processing.

Features of the Lasermeister 101A

Five-axis modeling system

The five-axis mechanism provides significantly enhanced design flexibility with more flexible modeling angles.


Additional processing of existing parts

Owing to the flexible design made possible by the five-axis modeling system, the Lasermeister 101A, unlike 3D printers, can freely perform additional processing on existing parts. The Lasermeister 101A enables diverse metal modeling, thereby providing enhanced functionality and strength with flexible design.

Repair of cracking and damage

The Lasermeister 101A can directly process a cracked or damaged portion to restore it to its original shape. This makes parts replacement unnecessary, thereby achieving cost and waste reduction.

3D scanner

360-degree omnidirectional scanning provides enhanced 3D alignment measurement accuracy.

More modeling powder types available

In addition to SUS (LM100A), the powders that can be used for modeling now include high-speed steel and Inconel, enabling more diverse metal modeling.

Enhanced productivity

Modeling speed has increased with new parameters. The Lasermeister 101A has a modeling speed about 1.5 times faster than the LM100A (excluding metal removal).

Features of the Lasermeister series

Easy to use, Lightweight & compact, Safety design

01 Easy to use

You can easily use the Lasermeister 101A without initial set-ups.

You can easily use the Lasermeister 101A because the 3D alignment function automatically positions the object to be modeled, which eliminates the need for cumbersome positioning after you place the base.

Optimization using modeling software

Optimization of modeling parameters using our proprietary modeling simulation technology contributes to an increase in the yield of modeled products.

Nikon’s modeling method

Nikon uses a modeling method that makes it possible to perform additional modeling on existing parts in addition to the general 3D printer method in which parts are modeled on a base plate.

You can use both modeling methods

Diverse processing functions

The Lasermeister 101A meets a variety of metal processing needs.

Modeling and additive manufacturing
You can add to or repair existing parts in addition to normal modeling.
Marking
You can draw a JPEG image or engrave a serial number on metal surfaces.
Remelting
You can decrease surface roughness by slightly melting the surface.
Welding
The welding function is easy to use.

02 Lightweight & compact

The Lasermeister 101A is much more compact than conventional products, having only a small footprint.

Weight: 1/5 Floor space: Less than 1/10 Volume: Less than 1/100

03 Safety design

The safety of the Lasermeister 101A was assessed by a third-party certification body according to European Standards. So, you can use it with peace of mind.

Entry model Lasermeister 100A

Nikon's optical processing machine, the “Lasermeister 100A,” has reformed the image of conventional metal processing machines, which have always been thought of as large, expensive, and requiring complicated operations. The Lasermeister 100A is the entry model of the Lasermeister series designed to open the door to metal processing to more people.

  • *The Lasermeister 100A is a three-axis (X-, Y-, and Z-axis) modeling system and is not equipped with a 3D scanner. Only SUS can be used as the powder for modeling.
