LPW Technology Ltd has installed a TRUMPF TruPrint 1000 metal additive manufacturing (AM) machine. The first machine of its kind in the UK, the TruPrint 1000 is a compact machine for the production of small metal components by laser melting on a powder bed.

‘LPW is expanding its PowderLife products and solutions throughout the industrial AM process and this new machine enables us to accelerate not only novel alloy development, but also applications testing, process optimisation, powder degradation studies and R&D projects,’ said LPW’s Applications Manager Ian Brooks.

The TRUMPF TruPrint 1000 will form part of a new metal AM lab that is being created by LPW.
