LPW, based in Cheshire, UK, has been shortlisted for an award open to companies in the North West.

The award, open to companies operating in the north west of the UK, recognises manufacturers using technology or technical processes to overcome barriers and add value to their customers.

LPW reinvests 10% of its annual sales revenue into R&D activities, which, along with LPW's technical knowledge, help provides the information needed to engineer metal powder behaviour specific to AM processes, the company says. This in turn helps LPW accurately measure powder properties under the conditions needed to provide relevant data for additive manufacture. LPW helps companies identify, evaluate and realise potential rapid manufacture technologies.
