_Form your own inserts.

A common problem facing manufacturing is how to get threads in thin walled materials. Not anymore with Formdrill!

 

 

 

 

Historical answers have been weld nuts or threaded inserts, but these techniques have many drawbacks such as costs in time and expense, more production steps, adding external elements, and overall quality.

 

The Formdrill solution is an easy process which uses proven technology:

 

First a bushing is created out of the parent material with a Formdrill tool.
This bushing increases the area available for tapping.

 

Secondly a Formtap forms strong threads in this bushing without any cutting.

Now you are ready for assembly.

_What is Formdrill ...

A quick introduction to the process,
just watch this animation (sound on)

 

_Can be used for

the following types of metal

_Steel

_Stainless steel

_Copper

_Brass

_Aluminium

_HSLA, DP, AHSS, ...

No special machines are required to use the Formdrill system, a standard drill press
is sufficient. CNC-centers, milling machines, pneumatic or hydraulic drill units are
also suited.

 

The Formdrill application is being used by thousands of different companies in
many different manufacturing industries including (but not limited to) automotive, furniture, and HVAC.

 

Typical applications are: threaded connections, bearing sleeves, sealing surfaces,
pivot points and brazing or soldering joints.
