New Product: Delicate, Light-Duty Fastening

July 10, 2008
The Spiralform method of fastening is designed for delicate and lighter-duty applications where orbital forming may not be optimal.

Spiralform displaces material using an 11-sided spiral pattern similar to those created by the old Spirograph drawing toy. As the forming tool contacts the surface, material uniformly flows out from the center, providing superior strength and surfacing.

Spiralform accommodates an integral load cell into its spindle package to provide Watchdawg Process Intelligence capabilities.

The process is suitable for ferrous, nonferrous, and die-case metals; casehardened fasteners; and ceramics, glass, and other delicate materials and assemblies.
