LPW Showcases Full Build Traceability for Metal AM at TCT Show


25 July, 2017: Runcorn, UK: LPW Technology Ltd, the market leader in the development, processing and supply of high quality metal powders and end-to-end solutions for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry, will be showcasing its full traceability solution with the innovative PowderSolve software system and PowderTrace smart hopper at the TCT Show 2017. Located at Hall 3 Stand E42, LPW’s sixth outing at the show in Birmingham on 26 – 28 September will see it demonstrating how its cutting-edge 3D technologies deliver effective traceability – from powder to part – in serial AM production.

“At LPW we’re aligned with the TCT Show’s mission to accelerate the adoption of 3D technologies for design, development and manufacture across all industry sectors,” says Dr Phil Carroll, LPW’s Founder and CEO. “To add intelligent data and practical, cost-effective solutions we’ve developed PowderLife, an integrated suite of software, hardware, analysis, applications support and premium metal powders.”

LPW views AM from the perspective of the powder, and at TCT will be highlighting both a newly released software and a hardware component of PowderLife.  PowderSolve and PowderTrace are two products expressly designed to monitor and control powder condition, adding traceability, reliability and confidence throughout the powder lifecycle.

“Knowing the condition of your powder at every step of the way helps avoid costly build failures,” continues Phil. “Combining PowderTrace’s smart transport and storage capabilities with PowderSolve’s ability to track powder history through different blends, repeated uses and different batches ensures traceability not only of the powder but also user actions and machine specifics, and the built parts.  Adding intelligent powder management to AM can increase productivity and reduce costs and risk.”
