LPE Adds Titanium to Metal Sintering Capabilities

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

LPE is continuing to expand its metal sintering services with the recent installation of an EOS M290 metal sintering machine and the addition of another metal sintering material. LPE has been offering high resolution aluminium and stainless steel parts on its MLab Laser Cusing System for a while but with this latest purchase we are now able to offer our customers parts built in titanium on our new EOS M290 machine.

Titanium is a popular material in many high performance engineering applications and is used in industries such as aerospace and medical. This well-known light alloy is characterised by having excellent mechanical properties and corrosion resistance combined with low specific weight. Titanium is perfect for precision parts, requiring thin walls or for parts with complex geometry. Titanium parts are being widely used both for accurate design verification and also to fulfil low volume production requirements.

Speaking of the investment, Managing Director of LPE, Tom Walls said: “This is a massive investment and step forward for LPE in terms of our expansion into the metal sintering market. The substantial value of this investment reflects our confidence in this new technology and demonstrates our commitment to staying at the forefront of innovation in this fast moving industry.

Metal Sintering greatly reduces time and financial costs compared to traditional manufacturing of components. This new innovation removes the constraints of traditional manufacturing allowing our customers freedom to design efficient, lightweight parts. It offers an ideal solution for the cost effective production of prototypes or final production components, regardless of complexity of design. We are delighted to be able to offer our customers access to this exciting new technology and we hope to continue our expansion into this market in the future.”
