Tees Valley Mayor and Chair of Tees Valley Combined Authority, Ben Houchen, and Cllr Sue Jeffrey, Leader of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, have visited the Materials Processing Institute to meet representatives involved in Liberty House Group’s £10m project to develop a new generation of powdered metals.
The Combined Authority will invest £4.6m to support Liberty to create an advanced range of speciality alloy metal powders.
This will allow the manufacture of stronger, lighter metals which are easier to turn into high-precision products, with zero waste. In particular, they can be used in 3D printing where three-dimensional objects, such as car parts, are created under computer control by laying down thin layers of material in succession.
