LPW Technology has expanded its presence in Asia-Pacific by creating a new partnership with Chinese 3D printing trading company Shanghai Dream Arising.

 LPW has eight global partnerships with official representatives currently, and this additional agreement in China allows LPW to build on existing business in one of the industry’s fastest growing markets. 

‘Since our incorporation in the region, we plan to build upon the momentum of the positive growth,’ said LPW commercial director Phil Kilburn. ‘By working with a number of selected partners in China shows our commitment to our clients and our ability in localising our metal powder offers and services.’

Adoption cycle

 LPW anticipate growth within the UK and existing additive manufacturing (AM) markets as high value sectors adopt the technology to produce production parts, but real expansion is expected through this new network.

‘We are pleased to confirm our agreement with LPW and fully believe in their vision, culture and outstanding metal powder products,’ said Fei Shang, MD of Shanghai Dream Arising. ‘Without this type of partnership, new AM technologies would move far more slowly through the adoption cycle and would struggle to realise their business potential.’
