LPW Technology signs agreement with Xsecpro Pte for supply of AM powders in South East Asia.
LPW Technology is taking another step to strengthen its position in Asia’s additive manufacturing market by partnering with Xsecpro Pte Ltd for the supply of high quality AM powders in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia.
Xsecpro Pte are well positioned in South East Asia’s high-tech capital Singapore, as a centre to support the development of the region’s AM industry at international level.
South East Asia is predicted to experience growth led primarily by the aerospace, automotive, and medical engineering industries. This means the demand for high-quality and capable metal powder products has become increasingly important in ensuring long term sustainability and economic manufacture.
Simon Lwee, Director of Xsecpro Pte Ltd, added; “Xsecpro Pte Ltd has many years of experience in the AM industry in providing AM machines, accessories, and support services to our customers in South East Asia. As additive manufacturing processes are embedded we have seen the demand for certified metal powder products surge as well. We are continually developing new capabilities so that customers can stay relevant and create higher-value industries. Working with LPW provides us with expertise in materials development and is a gateway to other services within AM. We are able to provide a one-stop solution to industries. We can link our customers to services such as analysis, development of new alloys, and expert application support.”
As the adoption for additive manufacturing (AM) technology in South East Asia continues to grow rapidly, LPW’s continues to build relationships and collaborate with key players in the region. Back in February, LPW partnered with Shaanxi 3D Technology to power the development of optimised metal powders for laser melting deposition, electron beam melting and selective laser melting technologies in the Chinese market.
Phil Kilburn, Commercial Director of LPW Technology, commented: “The lack of materials and processing intelligence is a risk to viable mass industry adoption. LPW have accumulated extensive experience working with industrial partners in quickly developing marketplaces to globalise the supply chain for optimised metal powders, and to be closer to our customers”.
