Powder processing in a circular economy | Tekna
Jean-François Carrier, Product Line Manager | Powder,
Selecting metallic powders is a vital consideration in Additive Manufacturing (AM). Metallic powders can be manufactured through many processes, but only a limited number of processes can produce powders specifically designed for meeting the requirements of the various AM technologies. In this context, we will present TEKNA’S ATOMIZATION TECHNOLOGY developed for the production of high-quality powders for metal am.
We will then present Tekna’s powder reconditioning processes with RF plasma used to transform out-of-spec recycled AM powders (feedstock) into high-quality in-spec powders (end product), thus extending the service life of AM powders. What’s more, Tekna’s technologies related to metal powder processing contribute to a circular economy.
