On the 14th of December the Portuguese Minister of Science, Technology and University Education, Manuel Heitor, accompanied by the president of Agência Nacional de Inovação (the Portuguese Innovation Agency) and other representatives from ANI and from the cluster Portugal Space visited the FREZITE Group. The visit to FHP, in Oporto, and to the Trofa facilities allowed the committee to learn about the projects in which FREZITE is involved and the technology and innovation that it develops daily in the areas of space and cutting tools.
Thinking not only about the geometric tolerance requirements of its tools, but also about the comfort and health of its employees, FMT – Frezite Metal Tooling has invested in an industrial air conditioning system. In addition to maintaining adequate indoor air quality, the new system ensures greater thermal comfort for people and equipment (avoiding overheating), factors that have a very positive impact in terms of productivity.
Measurement and metrological control has a critical role, both in the control of production processes and in the final quality of the product. That is why FREZITE has been investing in training its employees in new dimensional control tactics to update the geometric focus. The use of 3D referential adjusted to the system, ensures standards to reliably reproduce the best results, always aiming for continuous improvement of people and processes.

FREZITE has renewed its showroom, providing it with an area dedicated to technical training for customers - who can follow the entire testing process - as well as for its own employees. In this space the customer can also receive consultancy on engineering applications, perform tests and create simulation environments of its prototyping production.
This partnership began last year with FREZITE providing tools to the university project consisting of engineering students from the Portuguese Instituto Superior Técnico working on the development of a boat powered exclusively by solar energy. Besides promoting renewable energy, sustainability and electric mobility, Técnico Solar Boat also participates in international competitions. With the sponsorship renewed in 2021, the team has already completed the new prototype, the SR03, and is ready for the summer's competitions, after having won, last year, the Innovation Award at the Monaco Solar & Energy Boat Challenge. FREZITE continues promoting innovation and sustainability.
At the FREZITE Group, Sustainability and Innovation are integral parts of the same challenge. That is why the company has installed in the Trofa production units, In Portugal, more than 1500 photovoltaic panels in an area of over 2600 m2, which has already allowed it to produce more than 830 000 kWh. This energy saving would be enough to power about 170 houses/year. FREZITE making the difference.
In an increasingly digital world, FREZITE invested in a platform to facilitate its interaction with the customer. Through FREZITE@connect the customer can access the history of products already purchased, drawings, quality reports; request for new quotations and access to previous ones, manage orders, the current payments account and eventual complaints. Information at the reach of a click and that can be search on a PC or a mobile phone.
FMT - Frezite Metal Tooling has a new presentation of services, to better inform the market about its growing valences. From resharpening to refurbishment, including tool management, here you will find information about the complete level of service that the company provides to its customers.
The PSEM - Mobile Energy Sustainability Project, formed by a group of Students from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST Lisbon - Portugal) develops highly efficient electric vehicles. This team participates and has been achieving recognition and awards in the Greenpower Challenge, an international competition created to challenge young students and some companies to invest in the development of sustainable vehicles for the future. The PSEM has the support of FREZITE in the execution of its prototypes.
