LPW Technology

LPW Technology develops, manufactures and supplies high-quality metal powders and software solutions for the AM industry. We have developed PowderLife, a unique AM powder lifecycle management system which strictly controls risk for manufacturers, adding confidence, reliability and traceability through repeated AM builds. We view AM from the perspective of the powder, to ensure the highest possible standards of quality and service in safety critical industries.

From initial specification and supply, through controlling reproducibility, to conducting in-house testing and analysis, our objective is to provide the highest standards of quality and service. Our strong focus on R&D, from the development of new alloys to improving packaging and environmental sustainability, assures customers of our commitment to expanding the knowledge-base of the AM sector.

Our core values are knowledge, innovation, support and service and we believe we have a responsibility to support education and charities.

  • PowderTrace, the smart metal powder storage & transport solution, controls risk and traceability in AM. Equipped with sensors, the hoppers monitor metal powder environment from source to component throughout the powder lifecycle. 

    PowderTrace holds up to 470kg of powder, and can be used to transport and store powders, minimising manual handling. Fully sealed under an inert atmosphere, the units keep the powders dry and free from contaminants. Sensors monitor the weight, humidity, temperature, pressure, and oxygen levels of the metal powder environment, and all data collected can be uploaded into PowderSolve, LPW’s quality control software package which manages data from powders across multiple locations and multiple machines to give a clear overview of production status.

    PowderTrace can be used as a standalone unit or as part of PowderLife, LPW’s unique full AM powder lifecycle management system.
