Friction Drilling for Strong, Efficient, and Sustainable Connections without Chips, Burrs and Swarfs

Chipless process: Chip, Burrs and Swarf free with Friction Drilling

1 min read

The unique benefits of not having any chips, burrs and swarfs! Friction drilling is a drilling technique that minimizes material loss and does not create chips, shavings, or burrs. The Flowdrill friction drilling process forms the material around the friction drill. Unlike traditional fastening methods that generate burrs and shavings through drilling. This can be seen clearly in the video below. With Friction Drilling, more than three times the thickness of the original material is locally...

revolutionize modular construction with flowdrill: strong, fast, & error-free connections

Flowdrill Meets EUROCODE 3 Standards

1 min read

The Steel Construction Institute (SCI) has incorporated Flowdrill into its EUROCODE 3 manual. Why you should choose Friction Drilling over using an expansion or hollow bolt?  In the construction industry, structures were traditionally built on-site, using expansion bolts to create strong connections to hollow sections. However, with the growth of modular construction and increased factory work, Friction Drilling allows you to use only the parent material to create reliable connections. This approach offers several benefits...

Flowdrill: The Original Flowdrill Technology

Flowdrill: The Original Flowdrill Technology

1 min read

Authenticity Since 1923 Flowdrill is not just any Frictiondrill manufacturer, it is the original manufacturer of friction drills. The foundation for this revolutionary technique was laid in Southern France as early as 1923. Jan Claude de Valliere was the first to see the potential of using friction heat to drill holes in thin sheet metal. However, due to limitations in material and technology at the time, the development wasn't fully realized until nearly 60 years...
