About us


Our Story

Impression Technologies was formed in January 2013 to act as a portal between Imperial College London’s Engineering Faculty and automotive and transport manufacturers. Its HFQ® technology has already been taken up by a number of high-end manufacturers in the automotive industry.

Impression Technologies is fully equipped to carry out in-house prototyping and production runs to support HFQ Technology customers. We are the proud operators of the world’s first HFQ production line. One of the advantages of using HFQ Technology is significantly designed freedom. Impression Technologies will work with you from the start to help maximise the potential of this revolutionary process.

Our Services

We follow a tried and tested method to ensure we maximise the benefits HFQ Technology has to offer.

We conduct design feasibility studies and will be on hand to assist you in maximising cost-effective lightweighting opportunities.

During the Development process, Impression Technologies is able to design tools based on part geometry and run forming simulations for the HFQ® process. These simulations feed back to the design to optimise the geometry of the part for manufacture

Our UK based facility, includes a fully equipped HFQ® production cell, for in-house prototyping and production runs to support customer programmes.

We produce parts either as a niche volume supplier, or for initial runs leading to medium/high volume production, which we transfer to our global network of tier 1 HFQ® partners

Impression Technologies transfer HFQ® technology to tier 1 suppliers on a global basis, to offer choice and consistency of quality supply, wherever HFQ® parts are purchased from.
