LPW Technology Ltd, UK, has announced a strategic partnership with China’s Shaanxi 3D Technology to advance the use of optimised metal powders for Laser Metal Deposition, Electron Beam Melting and Selective Laser Melting applications.
LPW Technology is a market leader in the development and supply of metal powders for Additive Manufacturing (AM). Shaanxi 3D Technology provides a range of industrial AM solutions including 3D printing machines, software optimisation and on-demand parts services.
“Additive Manufacturing will profoundly affect the future of the manufacturing industry in China. Those who adopt new technologies early have always been at an advantage. However, the technical possibilities for powder specification and methods of manufacture have evolved considerably. LPW are an experienced and reliable partner in this area to provide much needed strong improvements in quality materials that lower the risk to the implementation of these technologies,” stated Dr Tao Ren, General Manager of Shaanxi 3D Technology.
“As the implementation of additive technologies in manufacturing continues to grow, manufacturers at all levels are looking for advantages in a highly competitive global environment. Additive is a crucial and evolving area of manufacturing in China and Shaanxi 3D Technology shares our commitment to delivering the most cutting-edge materials and solutions for leading industry suppliers,” added LPW Commercial Director Phil Kilburn.
