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. It has been key to the development of HFQ® Technology, which is revolutionising the exploitation of aluminium.

 We are the proud operators of the world’s first HFQ production line and is a founder member of the HFQ Partner Network.

What is HFQ?

The lightweighting technology standard for cost-effective, complex geometries for high-strength aluminium pressings by reducing weight for simpler, stronger structures.



HFQ Partner Network

As a licence holder for HFQ® technology you gain access to a wealth of support services to assist you with your project.

Impression Technologies will support you along the whole project cycle starting with an initial meeting to determine firstly whether the technology is suitable for your application and then to discuss how HFQ can benefit and improve your end product.
