LPW has been pioneering the use of laser deposition solutions since 2007 and in that time has worked with some of the leading industry organisations and academics in the field. This combined knowledge and experience together continues to develop innovative processes and turn concepts into reality.

LPW was originally established to provide application support and powders to users of Laser Deposition and Powder Bed Additive Metal Manufacture machines. This is still our core knowledge. However, at the request of our clients, we have developed a complete range of optimised metal powders specifically for Laser Metal Deposition (LMD), Selective Laser Melting (SLM), and Electron Beam Melting (EBM).

To accelerate the mass adoption of additive manufacturing the powder supply chain must be revolutionised. LPW is at the forefront of this change. Our objective is to help the industrial user control their material costs, increase the range of alloys available and ensure quality and traceability meet the requirements of aerospace and medical component manufacturers.

To continue to lead this development of new and better powders for additive manufacturing, LPW reinvests 10% of our annual turnover in Research & Development. This investment varies from developing new alloys and new ways to characterise metal powders, to improving packaging and environmental sustainability.
