High strength and security with FH FiberLock 02 February 2015

Flaig + Hommel GmbH, in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institut and the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Technologie, has developed the FH FiberLock, especially for use in lightweight applications.

Based in Aldingen, Germany, the company says the FH FiberLock is a modern, resuable, state of the art connection for fibre plates. For installation, the FH FiberLock consists of a bolt and an expansion sleeve to be inserted into a borehole. When tightening the hex nut, the profiled sleeve becomes locked into the borehole and forms a reliable and stable attachment – resulting in simple and fast assembly/disassembly.

The borehole has to be drilled into the plate with a commonly used drill – no special tools are needed to install the FH FiberLock. To avoid a twisting between the expansion sleeve and the borehole during the mounting, the bolt is designed with an inside hex to keep the bolt in position. This allows the user to obtain the highest strength and the highest security

for this type of connection. The FH FiberLock can also be used in a large-scale production, as well as in a single application, and can be custom designed according to customers’ specifications.
