    Friction drilling by Formdrill USA is an easy and cost-effective application to join thin-walled materials and avoid costly weld nuts or inserts.  Our drill bits are used to make a hole and create a bushing out of the parent material which increases the area available for tapping.

    Our tools work with standard equipment like drill presses, milling machines or CNCs.  This process is usable in most malleable materials such as mild and stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass and other high strength alloys.

    Although this may look like new science, it is a proven technology that has been around for over 40 years and is used throughout the automotive, furniture, HVAC and other manufacturing industries.
