changes everything.



Tecnar knows that better process control means increased productivity. That’s why your productivity is at the heart of everything we do. Tecnar designs and develops advanced sensors for industrial process monitoring and control. Founded in 1989 as a spin-off from Canada’s National Research Council, Tecnar has since diversified into four highly specialized product lines: automated pressure pipe welding, thermal and cold spray sensors, non-contact laser ultrasonic sensors and laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) sensors.

Precision is our passion

Tecnar is always looking for ways to do things just a little bit better. We work continuously with innovative scientific partners and leading-edge businesses to develop new technologies and explore new markets. But don’t just take our word for it… take theirs:


We began a relationship with Tecnar during the early stages of the Galvalibs development to fill a need for real-time zinc pot chemistry feedback. Since then, we have worked closely with Tecnar to upgrade to the latest version of the Galvalibs. Tecnar customer service has been a high priority throughout the entire process and they have made several site visits to ensure the proper setup, operation and maintenance of the system. Since the initial commissioning was successful and the Galvalibs proved reliable, we purchased a second system. Tecnar continues to value their high-quality customer service to ensure we have reliable systems.
