GEBE2 partners with SECAM, offering automated potted-in insert fixing for sandwich panels

SECAM FIXING SOLUTIONS, provider of fixing solutions, is partnering with GEBE2 to offer a fully automated fastening solutions dedicated to honeycomb and metal sandwich panels.

Conventional fixing processes for sandwich panels (nomex and aluminum) require multiple manual operations with no guarantee regarding repeatability.

This process implies an increase of pipeline products as it requires the immobilization on production lines up to 24 hours before handling, moving and fixing the sandwich panels components.

The fixing solution developed by SECAM and the robotization by GEBE2 is the best productive answer to these 2 problems. The process using the SECAMnida automated potted-in insert fixation for sandwich panels consists of 4 steps:

1. Drilling of the sandwich panel

2. Crimping of the insert on the upper skin

3. Injection of the two-components potting compound

4. Filling control – no additional finishing operations

Its advantages include :

- Simplified structures design, no extra reinforcement

- Equivalent of higher mechanical strength in regards to standard

- Overall weight reduction with lighter metal inserts

- Installation is 4 time quicker and requires 50% less steps compared to conventional methods

- Strong overall productivity gain due to decrease of production downtimes

- Immediate handling ofter crimping - no need for finishing operations
