17 October, 2017: Runcorn, UK: LPW Technology, the market leader in the development, processing and supply of high quality metal powders and software solutions for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry, is moving its US operation to a new, larger facility near Pittsburgh, PA.
John D Hunter, General Manager of LPW Technology Inc., comments, “Given the comprehensive range of AM metal powders we provide, the quality of our laboratory services and the effectiveness of our life cycle powder management systems, along with the increased demand from the AM industry, we have outgrown our current facility.”
LPW Inc is moving into a 12,000 sq. ft. (1,115 m2) factory in Imperial, PA, on October 23, 2017. “We’re also increasing our analytical and reconditioning capabilities to improve our customer’s reuse of their powders – we’re adding a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to our new, larger laboratory, and setting up two parallel reconditioning lines of sieves, blenders, and packaging lines to process powders and recertify them to the original specifications. We will continue to maintain a large inventory of metal powders for shipment within 24 hours of receiving an order,” adds John.
