LPW Technology will provide its PowderSolve powder quality control software to Exactech to ensure that the titanium powders used in its 3D-printed medical implants are within specification before each repeat build.

LPW provides a powder testing service that uses sieve analysis and looks at the powder morphology, chemical verification, and oxygen and nitrogen determination of recycled powders to identify any critical changes to the titanium powder prior to reuse. Its PowderSolve software and PowderTrace storage and transport hopper are designed to monitor and control powder condition, adding traceability, reliability and confidence in the built component.
