Additive manufacturing means environmental efficiency.

This is why Tekna enjoys a 9% market share and is growing in a global market where additive manufacturing is on track to outperform traditional machining. With over five years of commercial experience and a 54% compound annual growth rate we attained millions in revenues from vertical in 2020 and secured qualification and sales with the majority of aerospace original equipment manufacturers.

Nano powder for microelectronics

When it comes to microelectronics there is no such thing as ‘too small’.

Nano powders below 100 nm (0201M) are expected to become the new industry standard and Tekna is one of only two producers who can deliver. With our sights on securing industrial scale supply to global tier 1 customers in the microelectronics industry. Demand is driven by the sharp increase in consumer electronics (IoT), 5G, electrical and autonomous vehicles.

Batteries that go further

We provide the little extra that makes high-efficiency energy storage go further.

Tekna has developed and patented its industrial process for the production of high purity spherical silicon nano powder. Sample deliveries of high-performance nano silicon powders are revolutionizing the global battery market. Nano silicon solution for rechargeable batteries could provide electric vehicles with 60% more distance travelled on a single charge. The Lithium-Ion battery market is driven by the electrification of transportation (cars and planes), mobile devices and power grids.

Plasma Systems

Advanced plasma systems for production of materials with world-leading properties for high-end markets. Same technology is being used for simulation of hypersonic flight conditions.

From research to commercial products

Tekna began life producing plasma systems for universities and research institutions before being acquired by Arendals Fossekompani in 2013. Today, Tekna has a strong commercial focus and continues to increase its production of metal powders for a rapidly expanding customer base.

Tekna specializes in transforming its R&D into scalable technologies, transforming them into commercial successes. Its commitment to R&D feeds directly into the expansion of its high-tech product portfolio.
