Tekna sells two more plasma systems for highly spherical metal powder production

January 25, 2023

Tekna Holding ASA, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, has signed contracts for the sale of two plasma systems, one TEK15 and one TEK40 model, which enable the development and pilot production of highly spherical metallic or ceramic powders. Amounting to a total value of CAD $1.57 million, the systems will be used in a government research center in Belgium, and by a private company in Asia for commercial R&D purposes. Delivery is expected by the end of 2023.

The TEK15 system can be used for the development of spherical powder, nanomaterials and coatings. The sold system is to be used to develop spherical powder of various materials to be applied in Additive Manufacturing, for instance, Binder Jetting, as well as Metal Injection Moulding (MIM).

The TEK40 system is an upscaled version of the TEK15 and can be used for development or pilot production purposes. The system sold will be used to develop and produce trial-size samples of spherical refractory metal powders.

“We are excited to announce these contracts for the sales of our TEK15 and TEK40 plasma systems, which demonstrate the growing demand for our advanced materials solutions in the industry. These systems will allow our customers to experiment with a wide range of materials and explore different plasma environments and conditions. It is exhilarating to enable our customers’ advancements and innovations,” stated Luc Dionne, CEO at Tekna.
