Impression Technologies offers a fully tailored service according to your engineering needs from concept to production. We provide the knowledge and expertise to support HFQ® Technology, empowering you to transform your project.Our HFQ Technology enables cost effective & sustainable light-weighting in
ultra high strength aluminium for electric vehicles, aircraft and other structural components.
Our facility, located in Coventry, UK, is fully equipped to carry out in-house prototyping and production runs to support our HFQ customers and partners.
Impression Technologies was formed early 2013 to commercialise 10 years of research in advanced aluminium forming by Imperial College London, unlocking the potential of ultra-high strength alloys for automotive, aerospace and industrial structures.
In 2016 we commissioned the world’s first HFQ production line and started producing the first automotive HFQ parts (for Lotus and Aston Martin).
Design – conduct design feasibility studies and will be on hand to assist you in maximising cost-effective light-weighting opportunities.
Development – Impression Technologies is able to design tools based on part geometry and run formingsimulations for the HFQ process.
Prototype – our UK based facility, includes a fully equipped HFQ production cell, for in house prototyping andproduction
Production – we produce parts either as a niche volume supplier or for initial runs leading to medium/highvolume productions
Technology Transfer – Impression Technologies transfer HFQ technology to tier 1 suppliers on a global basis,to offer choice, and consistency
