About us

Surface Generation was established in 2002 to develop and commercialise the unique Production to Functional Specification (PtFS) process. Today our clients use PtFS to optimise their use of advanced composite materials like carbon fibre so they can manufacture products such as aircraft wings, consumer devices or automotive components much more efficiently than is possible with traditional manufacturing techniques.

PtFS enables a paradigm shift in cost, quality and delivery that provides fast (up to 95% lower cycle time) and energy efficient (up to 95% less) solutions to the world’s manufacturing OEMs and material suppliers.

Our target markets include:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Consumer Devices
  • Medical
  • Oil and Gas

What sets us apart

Surface Generation has challenged conventional manufacturing wisdom to develop Production to Functional Specification (PtFS). Designed from the ground up to work at temperatures of up to 1000 degrees C, PtFS uses using only air heating and cooling. By precisely controlling temperatures during manufacturing, Surface Generation provides a step change in processing accuracy, speed, economics and part performance even when using the most challenging materials, designs and applications.
