See you again this year at the K!

PFT Flock-Technik has successfully fulfilled ISO 14 001 in September 2021!

This is an internationally recognised standard for environmental management systems. By meeting these requirements, PFT Flock-Technik demonstrates its sense of responsibility and that it implements environmentally friendly behaviour in its processes.

SC PFT Flock technique S.R.L.

SC PFT Flock-Technik S.R.L. was founded on 17 February 2020.

In Codlea, very close to the city of Brasov, the new production facility was set up, especially for the flocking of various compression springs for the automotive industry.

In addition, there are of course other applications of flocking technology in different areas in the interior of various automobile manufacturers as well as goods from the cosmetics industry, packaging industry, consumer goods industry and much more.

The close cooperation between the two plants in QA and project work as well as support from the company’s own mechanical engineering company in Germany should represent a viable construction for the coming years, in which the familiar quality and realization of customer requirements are the main focus!

The 25th International Flock Symposium took place in March 2019 at the Schlosshotel Hohenkammer.
The Flock Award 2019 was also presented.

The prize was awarded for the spring partially flocked on the outside by PFT and for the development of a new automated process for minimum adhesive application and flocking of the outer surfaces of tension and pressure springs. In addition, PFT Flock-Technik GmbH received the Flock Award 2019 – Peoples Choice.

This year's Flock School took place from 20.-21. November 2018 at CHT Germany GmbH in Tübingen.

The speakers from the areas of flock production (Andreas Fröhler / Flock Depot GmbH), adhesives (Günther Holzinger / CHT Germany GmbH), flock machines (Alberto Sadun / Aigle Macchine SRL) and flocking processes (Martin Geske / PFT Flock Technik GmbH) have extensive knowledge in interesting lectures presented to the participants.

It has once again shown how extensive the topic of "flock" is and that this important training in the association can provide very extensive knowledge for those interested in flock, new employees and customers.

If possible, the next Flock School will take place in 2020.

25th anniversary of PFT Flock-Technik GmbH

In November 1993 the PFT Flock-Technik was founded, developed from the former Rath-Flock-Technik, at that time based in Plettenberg.

Since then, we have flocked molded parts, mainly for the automotive industry. Existing technologies have been continuously developed and the machinery has been expanded and modernised.

The regular presence at the plastics trade fairs K and Fakuma as well as at the in-house trade fairs of the automobile manufacturers has strengthened the existing circle of customers, but also won new customers.

At the current location in Herscheid, the production area was expanded by a further 600 m² in 2013 by building a new hall, and in 2014 by a further 700 m² by renting a hall in the neighbourhood. The number of employees in production and administration was increased, and the management was strengthened by Mr. Dietmar Benner.

New challenges in industry require constant further development of the technologies for the future as well. The PFT flock technology will meet these requirements.

Particularly in the area of flocked compression springs, there are interesting new flocking methods, as well as new techniques for flow optimization.

The company anniversary was celebrated in August 2018.

The Flock Award 2015 was awarded during the 23rd Flock Symposium in Munich.

The compression spring flocked by PFT and also saturated with a lubricant from a spindle drive with shaft joint from the Stabilus company is responsible for smooth and noiseless mechanics. PFT Flock-Technik GmbH was able to win first prize thereby winning the 2015 award with Stabilus GmbH.

The “Flock Award 2013” was presented during the 22nd Int. Flock Symposium in Como, Italy from the 18th to the 19th of March 2013.

The submitted specimens were inspected and evaluated for:

  • Innovation
  • Design
  • Challenge
  • Execution

by a specialist jury of the Flock Association. The equipment compartment of the latest vacuum cleaner series produced by the Miele company achieved the highest number of points for all criteria.
