Tekna celebrates its 30th anniversary

July 10, 2020

Tekna, a supplier of plasma induction systems and high purity metal powders, headquartered in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

“Earning the trust of the customers every day of this journey has been the priority of devoted men and women working at Tekna. This 30th anniversary celebration is in recognition of their dedication to the success of our company and that of our customers,” stated Luc Dionne, CEO at Tekna.

The company began with the development of its Inductive Coupled Plasma Torch back in the early 1990s, and has continued to build a portfolio of inventions and innovations. 

Tekna’s plasma torch spheroidisation technology allows the transformation of crushed, atomised and sponged powders into dense spherical powders. Powder densification and spheroidisation is one of the major applications of induction plasma technology; the technique basically consists of heating and melting of feed particles followed by cooling under controlled conditions.

The company’s nanopowder manufacturing technology also provides the means for the high volume production of a wide range of materials. Nanoparticle production is one of many induction plasma applications, due to its high-temperature processing capabilities and high gas quenching flow rates.

Tekna is a subsidiary of Arendals Fossekompani ASA and operates certified AS9100 manufacturing facilities in Canada and France, as well as sales and distribution offices in China, India and South Korea.

“Three decades of excellence are more than words to us,” commented Rémy Pontone, VP of Sales & Marketing. “It is about taking special care of the customer needs and providing solutions that make them successful in their own markets.”
