Auto focus at Fakuma for Victrex; low inertia, lightweight gears to be highlighted


At the Fakuma trade show in Germany, Victrex (Thornton Cleveleys, UK) will be presenting solutions for the automotive industry, a focus segment for the company, at its stand (Hall A4, Stand 4106). Associated benefits include greater fuel efficiency and driving comfort, and an extended service life, all achieved through refinements such as a reduced moment of inertia, less complex parts, new design approaches, and greater functional integration. In addition, Victrex PAEK materials can be processed economically on conventional thermoplastic machines with high-temperature capabilities. Importantly, this makes it possible to use the injection-molding process to mass produce complex and elaborate high-performance components, without subsequent tempering or machining.
