Traditional systems designed for sheet metal, such as rivets, screws and clips-fixings, are often incompatible with composite materials or require too many compromises to work hard, causing or a weakening of the finished product or an increase of its thickness, so to the final weight. Drilling a carbon reinforced panel causes damage to the fibers designed to provide reinforcement and structural integrity, and its subsequent breakage. Bonding the insert directly on the surface, using the correct adhesive, can provide a safe attachment without drilling or damaging the composite panel. Innovation and technological progress have led to the creation of specific inserts for the fiber-reinforced composite materials market. Thanks to their great flexibility in design phase and safety in hard working, they have become well-established articles over the years and are applied in a wide range of industries. The quality of these solutions has been fully tested by leading companies in the automotive, marine, construction, energy and manufacturing sectors in general.
