PyroGenesis Canada Inc., a TSX Venture 50® high-tech company, (the “Company”, the “Corporation” or “PyroGenesis”) that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma atomized metal powder, plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, has recently unveiled its new NexGen® Plasma Atomization System, which produces metal powder at over 25 kg/h for the Additive Manufacturing (“AM”) industry (3D Printing).
On June 8th, 2015, PyroGenesis announced the filing of a provisional patent for a revolutionary plasma atomization powder production process. This process was a significant departure from conventional plasma atomization and named it NexGen® Plasma Atomization. The provisional patent targeted higher production rates, narrower particle size distribution (“PSD”), as well as the ability to shift the bulk PSD. This allowed the Company to produce a very targeted powder for the AM industry with little to no waste.
On March 5th, 2019, PyroGenesis announced the first delivery of specialty reactive powder to a government entity. PyroGenesis’ NexGen® Plasma Atomization System was used to produce the powder and represents the first commercial contract to be fulfilled with the NexGen® unit.
