Inductive Coupled Plasma System

Tekna is the world leader in induction plasma technology and manufacturing turnkey systems. With 25 years of industrial experience Tekna can offer the power of inductive plasma technology to manufacture high value materials in commercial quantities and to the highest quality standards.

At Tekna, we manufacture turnkey Inductive plasma systems to develop and produce powders designed to meet all of the requirements from our customers.

All 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.


TekSphero-15


MAKING SPHERES HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY

Tekna’s Teksphero-15 improves powder flowability, reduces internal porosity and provides higher packing density. It also creates less friable powder and increases purity.

All these features make this tool necessary to meet the most demanding powder metallurgy applications (Additive Manufacturing, Metal Injection Molding, HIP, etc.).

Footprint

Length: 2.5m (8.2 ft)
Width: .9m (3.0 ft)
Height: 2.0m (6.5 ft)

Scalable

Powder developed at 15 kW can be easily scaled up for production at power level up to 200 kW on similar induction plasma technology.
