The Barnes Group Advisors, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, and LPW Technology, Widnes, Cheshire, UK, have entered into a strategic partnership to offer training and development for metal powder-based Additive Manufacturing. The aim of the partnership is to provide professional development training on a variety of topics specific to AM with metal powders.

“Adequate training increases employee productivity, team performance, and end-product quality,” stated Alison Wyrick Mendoza, Leader of Training & Services at The Barnes Group Advisors. “Almost everyone who works in our industry understands by now that people are the most important asset. It’s necessary to address advanced knowledge of all the processes involved, including those processes associated with AM materials.”

Ben Ferrar, Chief Operating Officer, LPW Technology, commented, “We’re delighted to partner with The Barnes Group Advisors to provide practical, in-depth powder training for metal AM. We are naturally aligned with The Barnes Group’s approach to training.”

“Advancing the knowledge-base within our industry of the importance of the metal powder within the AM process results in increased build success and acceptance of metal AM in the production environment,” he continued. “The training programme will begin with topics on AM Materials 101, Powder Production Methods, Material Testing Methods, and Advanced Specification Writing.”

“AM is only as viable as the material parts are made from and increasing the knowledge of these materials is another step forward to drive adoption and technology readiness,” added John Barnes, Founder and Managing Director, The Barnes Group Advisors. “LPW puts considerable effort into providing technical information for use by the AM industry, so it is a natural fit for The Barnes Group Training. It’s a great match to utilise what LPW already knows with our reach and mission to educate and train AM engineers.”
