Carpenter strengthens its additive manufacturing portfolio by acquiring LPW Technology
As a producer of specific alloys (titanium alloys, nickel and cobalt based superalloys, stainless steels, alloy steels and tool steels), it was essential for Carpenter to enhance its capabilities with metal powders. The company aims at integrating Metal Powder Lifecycle Management Technology with a very good quality control and traceability.
In this market, Carpenter found in LPW Technology, the company that might enhance these capabilities. LPW Technology has proven the capabilities of its metal powder lifecycle management technology through various use cases.
Lifecycle management technology increasingly reveals its importance in the analysis of materials’ behavior before, during, and after production in the powder-bed fusion process. “Understanding powder behavior is critical as AM becomes more widely adopted and implemented across various industries.”
Carpenter’s commitment to the AM industry
As far as Carpenter is concerned, we are currently witnessing an aggressive development of the company in key aspects of Additive Manufacturing (AM), which demonstrates its commitment to build a leading position in this industry.
Not to mention its recent investments in Puris, a titanium powders producer, LPW Technology is the second AM company acquired by Carpenter this year, the first one being CalRAM, that specializes in powder-bed fusion additive manufacturing (AM) metal printing services.
Speaking of this acquisition, Tony R. Thene, Carpenter’s President and Chief Executive Officer comments: “the acquisition combines LPW’s metal powder lifecycle management technology and processes with our technical expertise in producing highly engineered metal powders and additively manufactured components.”
