LPW Technology has been shortlisted for the Advanced Manufacturing / Technology Award at the Made in the North West Awards 2014. The award is in recognition of those companies using technology or technical processes to overcome barriers and add value to their customers.
LPW has led the development and integration of advanced metal powders for Additive Manufacturing (AM) since 2007. With continual investment in comprehensive powder testing equipment in 2013 LPW continues to reinvest 10% of its annual sales revenue into R&D activities to stay at the cutting edge of innovation. These R&D activities along with LPW’s technical knowledge provides the information needed to engineer metal powder behaviour specific to AM processes, lowering the risk to the implementation of these technologies.
Contributing to our understanding of how our powders behave and supporting us in delivering exemplary products LPW can accurately measure powder properties under the conditions needed to provide relevant data for additive manufacture. By working closely with our customers in a quality and collaborate based approach, including the development of powder specifications, LPW helps companies identify, evaluate and realise potential rapid manufacture technologies.
Set to celebrate the North West’s manufacturing sector, and showcase the region’s innovative and dynamic manufacturing community, the awards will be announced at the Insider Made in North West Awards night ceremony in February.
