Welcome to Formdrill|
One of the major problems in manufacturing engineering is how to join sheet metal, tubing or thin walled profiles in a simple, efficient and cost-effective way. Many different solutions are available such as weld nuts and threaded inserts, which are used to increase the number of threads.
The drawbacks to these techniques are: material removal, more production steps, adding external elements, costs, quality, ....
The Thermal Drilling System produces a bushing formed from the parent material itself. This bushing increases the area available for tapping.
So instead of cutting the wall, we use the material itself to form a stronger connection.
Advantages of the Thermal Drilling System are :
- Very fast process
- Stronger joints
- Cost effective
- No special machines needed
- Small investment
- High quality
- No additional components
- Less production steps
- Clean workspace (Chipless)
