Uniformity Labs, Fremont, California, USA, has signed an agreement with Tekna Holding ASA, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, which will see Tekna supply Ti64 5/25 and Ti64 45/105 for Uniformity to produce its advanced titanium powders for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing.
Uniformity’s engineered powders and processes are said to enable faster production of repeatable parts, at higher density with no compromise in quality. Tekna’s powder atomisation technology uses hydro-energy, and all process gasses are recycled in closed loops, achieving greener production. Together the companies will help industrial customers produce greener, more sustainable parts.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Tekna for the supply of highest quality titanium powders for LPBF,” stated Adam Hopkins, founder, and CEO of Uniformity Labs. “This agreement opens a critical North American material resource for us. The complementary nature of our businesses produces an economic benefit for our customers who gain through higher printer throughput and repeatability, and a supply chain security benefit from the use of materials produced entirely in North America.”
Luc Dionne, CEO of Tekna, commented, “We are extremely proud that Uniformity Labs has selected us to supply titanium powders. This is a testament to Tekna’s supply reliability and reaffirms that our product quality matches with a wide range of industry requirements.”
