Hot Aluminium Forming | SDE Technology

The HFQ® technology press forms hot aluminium blanks at high speed, which are quenched in the press tool, followed by artificial ageing to achieve full strength. SDE Technology are the first official licence holder for HFQ® technology for the UK and Europe.

This revolutionary new process developed by the scientists at Imperial College, London, enables extremely complex aluminium parts to be formed in a single press operation, whilst achieving high levels of strength in the finished part using standard grades of aluminium. Using HFQ ®technology means that you can avoid design compromises.

There is the added bonus that lightweight aluminium is infinitely recyclable. This helps our customers achieve their sustainability targets while providing consumers with environmentally friendly products.

SDE Technology is a proud member of the FactoryNOW initiative
