Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (TNSC) and LPW Technology Ltd. announced an alliance to drive the adoption of AM into the production environment. TNSC will be supplying a new range of metal powders for AM that have been developed and optimized by LPW Technology. This forms part of a total solution including gases, metal powders and metal heat treatment techniques. All products will be available through TNSC.

TNSC will leverage its expertise in welding processes, metal heat treatment and controlled gas atmospheres that are designed to help lower costs, secure supply, streamline production and eliminate defects.

TNSC has a dedicated AM technical team at its gas application R&D lab in Yamanashi, Japan. In addition to its partnership with LPW, the company is developing partnerships with other AM companies including Optomec.
