Victrex Invests in Production to Functional Specification Technology from Surface Generation

February 11 2019

An innovative and differentiated tooling design and processing technology called PtFS (Production to Functional Specification), from UK-based Surface Generation, has been chosen by Victrex as it seeks to bring enhanced manufacturing effectiveness to its parts-based ‘mega-programs’ and to OEM, Tier 1s, and the molding community.

Surface Generation’s unique technology uses patented hardware and proprietary software, to actively manage multiple part areas during processing and drive reductions in the energy consumption, injection processing pressures and cycle times required to make even the most complex material and part combinations.

This investment in innovation will support Victrex increasing commercialization of its parts-based mega-programs. Surface Generation’s technology could, in the future, help molders and others in the industry. Victrex’s reason to invest reflects that it is gaining technology which could enable customers access to produce more complex parts that may have limitations from traditional tooling designs used in injection or compression molding due to heating and cooling profiles of existing techniques in the tools.
