FlowDrilling and Tapping form a key part of our TLCC Smart Design Production process where customers benefit from a 50% reduction in production time and costs. Our innovative approach not only guarantees accuracy and reliability of parts, but allows customers to reap the rewards of a more efficient production line.
Flow Drilling and Tapping

How it works

  • FlowDrilling provides an innovative, more reliable and cost-efficient connection alternative to traditional fastening methods such as weld nuts or nut-serts.

  • Existing material is used to create a strong and uniform fixing, increasing the surface area that can be tapped with no weak points.

  • Sizes range from M2 to M30 inc BSP sizes in material thicknesses from 0.5mm to 10mm with different material applications:

    • Mild Steel
    • Stainless Steel
    • Copper
    • Brass
    • Bronze
    • Aluminium
