LPW, a manufacturer of metal powders for Additive Manufacturing, will showcase its range of materials at Rapid+TCT, Fort Worth, Texas, USA, April 23-26, 2018.  The company will demonstrate how its metal powder manufacturing and processing capabilities help customers to optimise their AM applications.

LPW’s new US facility near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is reported to have increased analytical and reconditioning capabilities that enable manufacturers to maximise their metal powder reuse. Reconditioning lines of sieves and blenders process metal powders and LPW’s analytical lab recertifies them to the original specifications. LPW’s US laboratory is also said to have state-of-the-art equipment for a comprehensive range of tests and analysis.

John Hunter, General Manager of LPW Technology Inc., stated, “In 2016 North America accounted for more than 35% of the global market for AM metal powders, and with world-wide demand forecast to grow at 22.4% CAGR to 2025, we’re anticipating the increasing requirements of the industry for AM-specific powder.”

“We’ll be welcoming visitors to booth 804 to discuss how LPW’s extensive PowderRange series of AM metal powders adds reliability to AM processes.  We’ll also be demonstrating our PowderLife suite of AM products and solutions designed to support AM in production.”

PowderRange metal powders are supplied to quality management standards AS 9120 and ISO 9001 in the US, with the shipment including a test certificate, adding assurance that the consistency and specifications have been checked and confirmed in LPW’s certified laboratories.

With PowderLife, AM metal powders are tailored to individual customer specifications, using hardware and software solutions to deliver material traceability and control through repeated builds.
