For 30 years, we have been leaning on our experience in applied research to offer you the perfect powder. Our automated industrial process combines the power of inductively coupled plasma and repeatability for ‘24/7’ production of high yielding advanced high-quality powders.
Our mastery of the plasma process has helped us remove all engineering obstructions and maintain our technological lead. We innovate and evolve for you and with you.
Our two product lines, plasma systems and advanced materials, support you in reaching your technical goals and innovation criteria, today and tomorrow.
At Tekna, we manufacture turnkey plasma systems to develop and produce powders designed to meet all of the requirements from our customers.
All of our equipment is designed and manufactured in our plants. We strictly control each stage. To meet the specific needs of your business, our plasma systems are produced in power ranges from 15 kW to several hundred kWs.
All of our systems are designed to perform with the utmost precision as well; spheroidization, purification, nanopowder synthesis or thermal spray of any type of advanced material.
We produce advanced material powders that meet the most demanding criteria in industrial quantities. Our nanopowders have controlled particle sizes and specific compositions. Our micrometric powders are highly pure and perfectly spherical, ensuring they have high density and high flow rate.
Thanks to our extremely accurate control tools, we can ensure that all our powders reach levels of performance and innovation that suit your specific requirements, today and tomorrow.
At Tekna, our success depends entirely on our culture, our values and our employees. This was the case from day one where innovation met leadership.
Our commitment is to always meet and even exceed the expectations of our customers, worldwide.
