Trichord are a specialist technology company that has built an enviable track record in developing equipment to assist firms to find surface finishing solutions. Since the late 80’s our core team has developed finishing technologies from specialist paints, water transfer, multi head pad printing, laser ablation, and its recent developments in Dye Diffusion. These solutions have been adopted by a wide range of multi national industries across the world ranging from automotive to aviation, consumer electronics to sportswear, industrial to fashion.
The core team started work in surface finishing technologies in the late 80’s in specialist automotive finishing working with such clients as Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Range Rover and Ford. In the early 90’s until the turn of the century we worked closely with Nokia, Motorola and Ericson in the surface finishing market, setting up global painting and coating plants. The early stages of the technology were based primarily on coating and painting solutions, as a result we have been able to combine the knowledge of coatings and different substrates to help clients find solutions as how to decorate their finished products.
From 2000 to 2004 the company developed 2.5D dye diffusion technology in partnership with ICI Plc. The next 4 years were dedicated to improving the already impressive technology, this lead to the development of 3D dye diffusion technology only to be eclipsed by the release of the 3DHD dye diffusion system in 2014. 3DHD is currently being utilised by many companies around the world for a large number of substrates, from phone covers to bowling balls, glass plates to wood and metal to fabric for shoes and the fashion industry. In 2015 Trichord released the latest development in 3D surface finishing technology, High Definition Micro Fusion (HDMF)
