LPW Technology to showcase new AM metal powder manufacture capabilities at formnext 2017

October 19, 2017

LPW Technology, Runcorn, Cheshire, UK, reports that it will showcase new ranges of clean powders for Additive Manufacturing at formnext powered by tct, November 14-17, Frankfurt, Germany, 2017. The new powders will be produced exclusively for metal Additive Manufacturing at the company’s new facility in Liverpool, UK, as of 2018.

According to LPW, the £20 million state-of-the-art facility will house atomisers capable of making small-to-medium volumes of very clean powders, primarily custom titanium, nickel, cobalt, aluminium and steel alloys.  The powder manufacturing facility has been designed to control contamination at every step of the process, with segregation of cells for specific material production. The powder manufacturing facility will be operated under cleanroom conditions with contamination controlled to a degree never before seen in the manufacture of AM metal powders.

“At LPW, we view AM from the perspective of the powder,” stated Dr Phil Carroll, LPW’s founder and CEO.  “At formnext we’ll be showcasing our new production capability, assuring manufacturers operating in safety-critical sectors that our atomisation equipment has been designed to engineer out the risk of contamination in our AM metal powders.”

LPW states that it focuses on materials designed to drive improved performance in the AM process.  Both the company’s PowderRange series of AM metal powders, and PowderLife, a suite of powders, products and solutions designed to support AM in production, will be on display in hall 3.1, stand D48 of the formnext exhibition.

LPW’s experienced applications engineers and R&D teams will be on hand at the exhibition, offering free 30-minute consultations to answer any questions about metal powders in AM applications.
