LPW's new metal powder manufacturing facility near Liverpool, UK.

LPW Technology will be showcasing its new range of ‘clean’ powders for additive manufacturing at Formnext 2017, taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, in November.

LPW’s new facility housed atomizers that can make small to medium volumes of very clean powders, primarily custom titanium, nickel, cobalt, aluminium, and steel alloys.  The powder manufacturing facility has been designed to control contamination at every step of the process, with segregation of cells for specific material production, the company says.

‘At LPW we view AM from the perspective of the powder,’ said Dr Phil Carroll, LPW’s founder and CEO. ‘At formnext we’ll be showcasing our new production capability.’
