Industrial aluminum profiles are commonly connected by punching, which is not affected by the structure of the frame. When you don't know which connection method to choose, punching is always a good choice.
Aluminum profile manufacturers generally recommend using punching connection, and sometimes punching connection is the only way to connect in many frame structures. In the following content, we will together understand the advantages of industrial aluminum extrusion frame using punching connection.
Before elaborating on the advantages of punching connection, let me introduce several industrial aluminum extrusion accessories that require punching connection, such as internal hex bolts, semi-circular head bolts, built-in connectors, and anchor connection pins. That means that before installation, holes or threads need to be punched or tapped at the position marked on the profile, and then tightened to achieve the fixing effect. Compared with external connectors, punching connection has the following advantages:
Punching connection is hidden inside the aluminum profile, without any protrusions on the frame appearance, so it has better aesthetic appearance. Therefore, for those who have high requirements for frame aesthetics, punching connection is a must.
The connection strength of punching connection is relatively high. For example, the connection strength of internal hex bolts is stronger than that of other connection methods. Therefore, punching connection must be used for large frame structures to ensure the load-bearing and stability of the frame.
Punching connection belongs to the internal connection method, and there will be no protrusions on the surface of the aluminum profile, which can reduce collisions and make it safer to use.
Punching connection does not occupy the space inside the aluminum profile groove, which is convenient for installing various types of sheets in the space. Especially for fixing sheets inside the aluminum profile groove, punching connection is necessary.
The punching connection has a wide range of uses. It can be used to install workbenches, conveyor support frames, equipment protection covers, fence partitions, shelves, small carts, etc. It is suitable for connecting and fixing all frame structures.
In summary, punching connection is one of the most commonly used connection methods for industrial aluminum extrusion frames, and it is also suitable for many scenarios. We hope the above content can be helpful to everyone!
