PyroGenesis Canada Inc, a clean-tech company that designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, is shipping the first of ten powder production systems for 3D printing due under a US$12.5 million contract signed last year.

Last July, the company signed a contract with a major international manufacturer for ten plasma-based, powder production systems for 3D printing.

‘Under this contract, 9 of the 10 systems are to be built once the first system is fully installed and commissioned in Asia,’ said P. Peter Pascali, president and CEO of PyroGenesis Canada Inc. ‘With the first system being shipped, and installation and commissioning scheduled for this summer, we plan to start manufacturing the last nine systems in the fall of 2015.

 ‘We continue to experience significant interest in our 3D powder capabilities, and we have recently decided to offer these powders on a take-or-pay basis to several key customers.’
