LPW Technology, a developer of metal powders and software solutions for the additive manufacturing industry, has its U.S. operation to a new, larger facility in Imperial,  Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh.

LPW General Manager John D. Hunter says, “Given the comprehensive range of AM metal powders we provide, the quality of our laboratory services and the effectiveness of our lifecycle powder management systems, along with the increased demand from the AM industry, we have outgrown our current facility.”

The company moved to the 12,000-square-foot (1,115-square-meter) factory on October 23, 2017. Hunter says, “We’re also increasing our analytical and reconditioning capabilities to improve our customer’s reuse of their powders. We’re adding a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to our new, larger laboratory and setting up two parallel reconditioning lines of sieves, blenders and packaging lines to process powders and recertify them to the original specifications. We will continue to maintain a large inventory of metal powders for shipment within 24 hours of receiving an order.”
