One of the major problems of manufacturing engineering is how to join metal sheet metal, pipes and thin walled sections in a simple, efficient and convenient way. Some available solutions are welded nuts and threaded inserts.
The disadvantages of these techniques are: removal of material, more production phases, the addition of external elements, cost, quality, ....
The thermal drilling system produces a bushing formed by the mother material that increases the area available for the tapping.
So, instead of cutting the wall, we use the same material to form a stronger fusion.
The advantages of the thermal drilling system are:
- Very fast process
- Strong joints
- Standard offer, without special surcharges
- Small investment
- High quality
- No additional components
- Less production phases
- Clean working environment
