LPW Technology, headquartered in Runcorn, UK, has announced that its US operation has been awarded the quality management standards AS9120A & ISO 9001:2008. Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, LPW Technology, Inc. was established in 2014 to meet strong demand for LPW’s metal powders and industry knowledge from the North and South American AM market.
“LPW’s ethos is to provide evidence-based quality assurance for its customers across the globe,” stated John D Hunter, General Manager of LPW Technology, Inc. “The award of the USA quality standards complements our UK achievements, where we’ve already attained ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485:2012, AS 9100C and AS 9120A.”
“AS 9120A was developed for pass-through distributors of aerospace items and has been extended to include defence and space industries too,” added Hunter. “Achieving AS 9120A for the procurement and supply of specialist powders for LASER and Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing processes assures our customers of product quality, traceability and the control and availability of records, reducing risk and elevating LPW Technology, Inc’s quality management system to the aerospace industry’s global standard (IAQG).”
