Fiberglass profiles with hole drilling option

time:2020-6-5

Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) (also called fiber-reinforced polymer, or fiber-reinforced plastic) is a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibers. Unicomposite mainly produce glass fiber and carbon fiber products.

During the installation of fiberglass profiles, there is demand to drilling holes on the profile for connection. For example, fiberglass fence are basically combined with fiberglass tubes and flat bars, when installing the fence, a hole is needed to combine the tubes and bars together tightly.

The traditional way to punch holes in FRP products is to use bench-type drilling machine, which is  a small drilling machine that can be placed on the workbench and the main shaft is arranged vertically. The drilling diameter of the bench-top drilling machine is generally below 13 mm. The efficiency of bench-type drilling machine is very low, and when punching special-shape holes, holes, it’s very difficult to punch the shape well and the quality of hole is not guaranteed. The material of glass fiber reinforced plastic is different from metal or steel, which is composed of glass fiber, reinforcing agent and resin. When punching the FRP profile, it is easy to break and cause roughness.

To solve this problem, Unicomposite introduces fully automatic punching equipment, which greatly improves the punching efficiency, and the punched holes have good stability, standard size, no burrs and beautiful appearance.
