LPW Technology—a UK-based producer of metal additive manufacturing (AM) powders—is introducing M G Sales as its latest reseller and Asia-Pacific team member at the AMSI (Additive Manufacturing Society of India) conference, taking place in Bangalore, on September 7-8, 2017.
According to 6WResearch, ‘[India’s] 3D printer prototyping and materials market is projected to reach over 62 m USD by 2020’. LPW Technology is looking to capitalize on AM’s rapid rate of adoption in the country’s aerospace, automotive and dental markets by supplying its powders through M G Sales, a company in Gujarat, India, that possesses over 20 years’ experience in the tooling and thermal spraying markets.
Dermot Desmond, Asia-Pacific sales manager, LPW Technology, commented: ‘We recognize that as serial AM production becomes a commercial reality in India, LPW needs a local presence to provide the metal powder technologies, solutions and services our clients need.’
LPW Technology’s partnership with M G Sales is said to demonstrate its support of the Indian AM sector’s participation in 'Make in India', an initiative launched by the Government of India to encourage national as well as multi-national companies to manufacture their products in India.
LPW Technology believes the AMSI conference presents an ideal opportunity to meet fellow AM professionals also keen to promote AM technology in India.
