Friction drilling is a unique technology that is currently used by more than 5000 customers across the world and this number is growing fast.
Our solid carbide friction drilling tool is capable of locally displacing material in order to form increased material thickness, which, in turn, allows for a stronger fastening connection by tapping and brazing.
This means we have become a best friend to furniture designers looking for an aesthetically pleasing finish, car manufacturers determined to take the weight out of their vehicles and general fabricators looking to reduce production set-up times. We’ve also become a breath of fresh air for the HVAC sector.
Flowdrill is easy to set up and is extremely flexible. The tooling can be utilized on manual equipment, custom built automated equipment, CNC machining centers and can also be mounted on a robot.
Nothing beats a hands on sample, allowing you to see what is possible with friction drilling and convince your team of where you may have been missing out or the opportunities it could bring.
This differs on the basis of material, type of solution and size of the drill hole. For every application, we find the suitable friction drill.
