Tekna Holding ASA, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, has signed contracts for the sale of two TEK15 research scale plasma systems which enable the development of highly spherical metallic or ceramic powders. The two systems will be used to develop spherical powder of various materials to be applied in Additive Manufacturing processes such as Binder Jetting as well as Metal Injection Moulding.

The orders amount to a total value of $1.45 million and will be delivered to customers in early 2023. The systems will be used in a government research centre in Asia and by a private company in the USA for commercial R&D purposes.

“Our TEK15 system fosters innovation by enabling our customers to experiment with many different materials,” stated Romain Vert, Director of System Sales at Tekna. “The system has been developed to allow users to explore different plasma environments and conditions and make swift adjustments to produce different variations of materials. These agreements take the number of units sold up to fifty-seven and correspond with the increased demand Tekna is experiencing for its advanced materials.”
