Tekna, a leading provider of advanced materials and plasma systems, has received a major order for CAD 1.7 million (about USD 1.2 million) of titanium (Ti64) additive manufacturing powder from an undisclosed customer in Asia. The materials will be used for large-scale production via metal injection molding (MIM) but still provide a good indication of the growing demand for AM-ready metal powders.

The first shipment of the material has been completed, and subsequent deliveries will continue until the end of 2023. The customer will be using the powder in the process of metal injection molding to manufacture sub-components for personal electronic devices on a large scale.

TEKNA receives major order for CAD 1.7 million of titanium powder; the materials will actually be used for large scale production via MIM “We are excited that we have achieved this significant milestone in one of our most promising market segments – consumer electronics. This is a rapidly growing sector with great potential for Tekna. We believe that this order is proof of the quality of our products and the strength of our brand,” said Luc Dionne, CEO of Tekna.

The sub-components manufactured using metal injection molding are supplied in the consumer electronics value chain to companies having a global reach. The growth potential for metal injection molding in the consumer electronics industry is significant, as it allows for the creation of smaller and more intricate components that can enhance the performance and functionality of electronic devices.

Metal injection molding is a manufacturing process that involves blending fine metal powders with polymer binder material to create a feedstock that is injected into a mold and later sintered into a desired shape. This process offers several benefits, including the ability to create complex shapes with high precision and an excellent surface finish. It is also a cost-effective alternative to traditional manufacturing methods such as machining or casting.
