Note:

The parameters in this table refer to mild steel and other soft materials. For stainless steel, we recommend a 1/10mm (0.1) larger diameter when using an M6 or larger thread. Example: Use 5.5 mm instead of 5.4mm for an M6 thread or 7.4mm instead of 7.3mm for an M8 thread, etc.

Feature

Flowdrilling

A Flowdrill® uses rotational speed and axial force for a local creation of frictional heat. It plastifies metal materials and forms accurate bushings in between seconds:

  • with mutiple length of the original material thickness
  • chipless, no waste
  • in steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper...
  • for all typical material thicknesses>0.5mm
  • for high loaded threads from M2 to M20 and up to G1"
  • thus replaces welding nuts, rivet nuts

Flowtapping

Flowtapping is also a chipless operation. The thread shape is formed through the whole bush length. Therefore a thread length of minimum 1 x D can normally be achieved. The load of a cold formed thread beats a standard cut thread and effects a positive operating lifetime benefit as well.

5 typical use cases

 

Applications

Automotive and agriculture

construction, solar and heating industry

Stairs, handrails and fronts

Steel furniture and rehab accessories

 

Setup instruction

1. Assembling: tool holder and Flowdrill

Dismounting:

  • When untighten the nut make sure that the Flowdrill does not just fall out, e.g. use a flannel underneath.
  • ATTENTION: do not touch the hot drill with your hands!

2. Preparation: clamping, stop end position, drilling parameters

3. Drilling process

4. Equipment for cold form tapping with FLOWTAP:

5. Parameters table for FLOWDRILL and FLOWTAP

Note:

  • The above table information is recommended standard data. The standard requirements may change with different thread sizes and thread length according to different material thicknesses and specific material properties.
  • Stainless steel: 15% less rpm for the Flowdrill process based on the optimal rpm and+0.1mm tool diameter for sizes larger M6
  • Aluminum and non-ferrous materials: 50% higher rpm for the Flowdrill process based on the optimal RPM.
  • All data is based on 2mmmaterial thickness and optimal rpm-power setting. Each additional Millimeter in material thickness requires approx. +1sfor the processing time.
