“PowderTrace has been designed to meet manufacturers’ demands for traceability and control of metal powders, and has the potential to greatly reduce the risk of contamination in metal AM,” says Phil Kilburn, LPW’s Commercial Director.
Established in 2007 by Dr Phil Carroll, LPW Technology Ltd is this month celebrating 10 years of developing, processing and supplying high quality metal powders and creating innovative software solutions for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry.
“In the last decade LPW has seen rapid growth,” says Phil. “We value our ability to think ahead. The company has developed a comprehensive range of products and services, including the development of new alloys, and of PowderLife, an innovative suite of hardware and software systems that control risk in critical manufacturing processes for industries including aerospace, automotive, biomedical and energy.
LPW’s Charity & Social Committee is celebrating after smashing through its £300 fundraising target for Cancer Research UK. Every one of the determined nine-strong team completed the tough 5k Pretty Muddy® course on Sunday May 7th in Victoria Park, Warrington.
After scaling an A-frame, climbing over hurdles, scrambling under nets and through a mud pit, the team was tired, dirty but exhilarated to hear that their Just Giving page had registered over £864 of donations, with a further £102 pledged.
LPW Technology will be showcasing its innovative PowderTrace system at Rapid+TCT in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania between 9th and 11th May at stand 1223.
