LPW Technology has recently declared that their unique, world leading Plasma Spheroidisation equipment is now operational and producing higher quality Metal Powders for use in the Additive Manufacturing industry. Plasma Spheroidisation uses high energy plasma to produce cleaner, highly spherical and dense metallic powders with greater flowability, reducing down time on the machine and speeding up the manufacturing process.
Mike Ford, LPW’s Sales Director, said the Plasma Spheroidisation equipment, which is the only one in the world used in Additive Manufacturing, has the potential to revolutionise the industry. The most significant benefit of this novel technology is perfectly spherical powder with no satellites, which increases the flowability and packing density of the powder, especially on AM machines where finer powder is required.
LPW will comprehensively test the received powder, blend multiple batches and re-size if necessary, before fully analysing and certifying the powder after plasma spheroidisation. LPW’s highly experienced, award winning team have gained a reputation for excellence within the Additive Manufacturing industry. This unrivalled experience has enabled our team to gain a deep understanding of the powder requirements for the AM process which means we are uniquely qualified to use the Plasma Spheroidisation process to produce higher quality materials for use in industry.
