22 February 2018: Runcorn, UK: LPW Technology Ltd, the market leader in the manufacture, development and processing of high quality metal powders for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry, will be showcasing its increased capability to manufacture clean, premium quality metal powders at Stand N1 A11, TCT Asia.
2018 sees LPW move into a new, purpose-built factory near Liverpool, UK. Employing digital technology and cleanroom levels of contamination control, it will be producing the next generation of metal powders developed specifically for AM.
“Consistent metal powder quality to the correct specification is crucial for the widespread adoption of AM,” says Dermot Desmond, LPW’s Asia-Pacific Reseller Development Manager. “As our powder production develops we are growing our network of Asia-Pacific associates to support the expanding metal AM industry in Asia. The combination of our experience in AM and the quality of our products, supported by local, trained independent regional representatives, offers manufacturers in Asia solutions to the challenges of AM in demanding applications.”
LPW is accredited to AS 9120A for aerospace and ISO 13485 for medical applications, implementing robust quality management processes that assure the integrity of the tightly controlled metal powders it supplies to safety-critical sectors world-wide such as medical, aerospace, automotive and energy.
“AM technology in Asia is developing rapidly, and the APAC Additive Manufacturing market is forecast to grow at a rate of almost 20% over the next seven years, with China accounting for more than 70% of the business,” adds Dermot. “We’re inviting our AM colleagues to come to see us at the show and discuss how LPW, our teams of applications engineers and R&D scientists, and our expanding local partnerships can support this growth,” adds Dermot.
