Victrex, a UK-based leader in high-performance PEEK and PAEK polymer solutions, has achieved a new milestone for its automotive offerings.
Its gear design and manufacturing facility in Grantsburg, US, has received the IATF 16949 certification, proving that the necessary systems and capabilities are in place.
At the international K 2019 tradeshow in Düsseldorf, Germany, gear solutions will also be one focus at the Victrex booth (Hall 5, Booth B09).
Since 2015 Victrex has extended its material expertise to the design, development and manufacture of gears to offer a fully integrated and highly innovative approach to thermoplastic PEEK gear solutiond. . Enabling Tier 1/OEM customers to work with one partner from concept to commercialisation, the company supports the development and testing of high-precision VICTREX HPG-based gears, as well as manufacturing these gears as a component for integration into larger systems, e.g. within the engine, transmission, pump, actuator and chassis.
Automotive Director at Victrex Andy Walton said: “Attaining this certification was a major goal for us. It unequivocally demonstrates that Victrex has the quality systems and capability to supply turnkey PEEK gear solutions into the mainstream Tier1/OEM supply chain. A major European car manufacturer has already taken advantage of our gear design approach, as our ability to look at the whole system, not just the gear was invaluable. We are also working on numerous other programmes with global OEMs in other geographies, including the US.”
At K 2019 performance, power and progress will take centre stage at the Victrex booth, where several meet-the-expert sessions are scheduled.
