Uniformity Labs, producer of engineered materials for advanced manufacturing, and Tekna, provider of advanced materials to industry, signed an agreement where Tekna will supply Ti64 5/25 and Ti64 45/105 to Uniformity to produce its highly advanced titanium powders. This agreement will make available a critical North American supply source for Uniformity and increase Tekna’s output capacity and efficiency.
The collaboration enables Tekna to optimize the use of its production yield which Uniformity will process to produce its advanced titanium powder for LPBF. Uniformity’s technology helps customers realize substantial quality and efficiency improvements in additive and conventional manufacturing at scale. Their engineered powders and processes enable faster production of repeatable parts at higher density with no compromise in quality.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Tekna for the supply of highest quality titanium powders for LPBF”, said Adam Hopkins, founder, and CEO of Uniformity Labs. “This agreement opens a critical North American material resource for us. The complementary nature of our businesses produces an economic benefit for our customers who gain through higher printer throughput and repeatability, and a supply chain security benefit from the use of materials produced entirely in North America.”
Tekna powder atomization technology uses hydro-energy, and all process gasses are recycled in closed loops, achieving greener production. Together the companies will help industrial customers produce greener, more sustainable parts. Furthermore, this supply agreement leverages both companies’ complementary offer to the industry and clears the way to a growing collaboration between the two leaders.
“We are extremely proud that Uniformity Labs has selected us to supply titanium powders,” said Luc Dionne, CEO of Tekna. “This is a testament to Tekna’s supply reliability and reaffirms that our product quality matches with a wide range of industry requirements.”
