LPW Technology establishes new US subsidiary for metal AM powders

June 4, 2014

LPW Technology, a supplier of optimised metal powders for Additive Manufacturing (AM) systems based in Daresbury, Cheshire, UK, has formally established a US subsidiary, LPW Technology Inc. Opening in June 2014, the LPW Technology Inc. office will be situated in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and will provide local support and sales to a growing number of customers in the US.

“Our global client base continues to show encouraging growth and the time feels right for this significant expansion into the US,” stated Phil Carroll, Managing Director of LPW Technology. “The LPW Technology Inc. office will be headed by John Hunter, an expert in Additive Manufacturing with considerable knowledge of powder manufacture.”

Working alongside John Hunter will be Donna Williamson, Customer Service Manager, who also has many years of experience with metal powders. The US team will work closely with engineers and researchers at the company’s headquarters in the UK.

LPW Technology Inc. will develop and provide optimised powders specifically for Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) and Electron Beam Melting (EBM), with standard powders supplied from stock and custom development alloys on request. Certified products are available for aerospace applications and in 2014 LPW will add certification for biomedical applications to its existing quality control standards.

Duplicating the set-up in the UK, the new office will ultimately have a well-equipped laboratory with instrumentation for chemical, physical and bulk powder property testing. This facility will enable the US team to apply a wide range of analytical techniques to robustly assess the suitability of metal powders for new AM applications, and to determine the feasibility of recycling used powders.
