Attend LPW Carpenter Additive’s Interactive ‘Powder Degradation Study’ Workshop at the 2019 AMUG Conference
At the 2019 AMUG Conference in Chicago, LPW Carpenter Additive’s Application Engineer, Nate Kistler, will be hosting a workshop to help metal AM users plan how to design their own powder degradation study, to optimise metal powder usage in AM builds. The workshop will be held in the Hilton Chicago’s Marquette Room on Tuesday, April 2nd, from 1.30pm-2.30pm.
The interactive session, “Designing a Powder Degradation Study”, aims to help the participants to understand how to undertake a powder degradation study that is customizable to each user’s AM needs. Additionally, the presentation will share useful information and findings from internal studies on powder degradation, powder recycling, and the economic benefits of understanding the link between part mechanical properties and powder degradation.
It would be useful to bring a laptop or tablet into this workshop if you’d like to engage in real-time with the Excel-based interactive powder study template designed for customising individual powder usage. If you are interested in learning how powder degradation affects your AM processes, please join us for this practical workshop.

Expands Growing Leadership Position as Additive Manufacturing Solutions Provider
Incorporates Metal Powder Lifecycle Management Technology with Superior Quality Control and Traceability
PHILADELPHIA – October 24, 2018 – Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE: CRS) today announced it has acquired LPW Technology Ltd. (LPW), a leader in the development and supply of advanced metal powders and powder lifecycle management solutions to the Additive Manufacturing industry, for approximately $81 million. LPW is based in Widnes, Cheshire, United Kingdom with additional processing operations near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. LPW employs approximately 80 people.
“Our aggressive development in key aspects of Additive Manufacturing (AM) demonstrates our commitment to build on our industry-leading position in this space,” said Tony R. Thene, Carpenter’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The acquisition combines LPW’s metal powder lifecycle management technology and processes with our technical expertise in producing highly engineered metal powders and additively manufactured components.”
Lifecycle management technology is becoming increasingly important to understanding how materials behave before, during, and after production in the powder-bed fusion process. Understanding powder behavior is critical as AM becomes more widely adopted and implemented across various industries.
“LPW’s innovative platforms and enabling technology further solidify Carpenter’s position as a preferred provider of end-to-end next generation Additive Manufacturing solutions,” said Phil Carroll, LPW’s founder. “I’m extremely proud of the accomplishments we’ve achieved at LPW and I’m excited to be part of Carpenter’s continued growth and leadership in AM.”
Carpenter’s additive portfolio, including recent investments in Puris, a titanium powders producer; CalRAM, a leader in electron beam and laser powder-bed fusion additive manufacturing services, and construction of an Emerging Technology Center in Athens, Alabama represent a significant force positioned to capitalize on the rapid AM growth.
