Edge finishing

edge finishing wit

FITS panel top and bottom facing connected, edges closed.
Examples: i.e. doors of galley, weight saving, 2-5 kg/galley.

Manufacturing time: 20 - 30 seconds/edge.
Improved bending strength and stifness, especially at short length.

randafwerking

Manufacturing time: 20 - 30 seconds/edge.
Closing of edges without an overlap of top - and bottom facings.

hoekrand

Manufacturing time max 30 sec./edge

edge2

U-shape, profiled edge for connection of panels (i.e. sides of luggage bin).

 

Folding

Local dimpling and welding of inserts

insert_kunststof

Manufacturing time: max 5 seconds / insert.
Thermoplastic insert unit, 1 gr Pull out strength of metal.

dimpel

 

Injection molding of inserts

Welding of panels, stiffeners or others

Total manufacturing time of the three shaped parts: 2 - 3 minutes.
Resistance welding with metal mesh, welding time: max. 10 seconds

The corner is the strongest part of the sandwich construction.

 

Integration of local reinforcements

rand2edgefinishing

The edge reinforcement is made from only one panel.

stiffeners1

Very structural efficient construction: local reinforcement in
deepening of panel with formtrusion (beam).

 

FITS beams and highly loaded constructions

balkjes

Beams for reinforcement purposes, all made of FITS panels.

 

3D forming

 

Possibility to manufacture side wall or ceiling panels with 3D displacement in maximum 4 minutes.
