Calspan is a technology company with a strong heritage in aerospace and transportation research and development. It was originally founded in 1940 as the Research Laboratory of the Curtiss Wright Aircraft Company in Buffalo, N.Y. After the Curtiss Wright factory in Buffalo was closed following World War 2, it then operated as the Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, a not-for-profit research facility affiliated with Cornell University. In 1972 Cornell re-organized the Laboratory as the for-profit Calspan Corporation. Over the next 33 years the company had a series of outside corporate owners including Arvin Industries, Space Industries, Veridian Corporation, and General Dynamics. In 2005 the aerospace and transportation businesses were divested from General Dynamics and acquired by an independent ownership group from Western New York. The ownership team restored the Calspan name with a renewed focus on transportation and aerospace testing and technical services related to safety.

One of the major problems in manufacturing engineering is how to join sheet metal, tubing or thin walled profiles in a simple, efficient and cost-effective way. Many different solutions are available such as weld nuts and threaded inserts, which are used to increase the number of threads.
The drawbacks to these techniques are: material removal, more production steps, adding external elements, costs, quality, .... The Thermal Drilling System produces a bushing formed from the parent material itself. This bushing increases the area available for tapping.
So instead of cutting the wall, Formdrill uses the material itself to form a stronger connection.
Advantages of the Thermal Drilling System are : - Very fast process - Stronger joints - Cost effective - No special machines needed - Small investment - High quality - No additional components - Less production steps - Clean workspace (Chipless)
