LPW Technology and Additive Industries today confirmed their collaboration on integrated industrial additive manufacturing of metal parts for high-end applications like aerospace. LPW Technology CEO Dr. Phil Carroll and Jan-Cees Santema, Additive Industries’ Sales Director Europe signed a commercial agreement for Additive Industries to offer the powder management solutions of LPW as an integral part of the MetalFAB1 systems and supporting Additive World Platform. This allows Additive Industries customers to automatically load powder into the MetalFAB1 systems in inert conditions and record the main characteristics of the metal powders during their lifecycle from metal powder manufacturing to part production. Especially in series production of qualified parts, this closed loop system is key in reducing the risk of contamination and potential variations in the powder performance as a result of exposure to oxygen and humidity.
The Barnes Group Advisors and LPW Technology have entered into a Strategic Partnership for metal Powder Training & Development for Additive Manufacturing.
The partnership aims to promote workforce development through training in Additive Manufacturing (AM), building the skills and knowledge of AM professionals. This partnership provides professional development training on a variety of topics specific to AM metal powders and is designed to provide growth opportunities to keep employees up-to-date with industry methods, challenged, and engaged.
