SCORING

SCORING POINTS IN SAFETY WITH FRIMO SCORING

Invisible airbag weakening

Scoring technology is used in the automotive industry for skin weakening in airbag areas on instrument panels and door panels. Highly-specialized blades and our online tracking are used to score targeted break-through areas that ensure controlled airbag deployment. Maximum precision and flawless quality are absolute musts. The material and application determine which of our variety of different blade systems to use.

Our scoring systems are the market's technological leaders and are available in a variety of designs. We have exclusive process technology for incorporating release agents to achieve optimal results. Sophisticated error-prevention concepts, such as online tracking, positioning aids, skin thickness measurement, blade disposal stations, and poka yoke ensure the highest possible output of flawless parts.

SCORING PROCESS

A suitable production method for every application

 

Drag Blades
  • Low tool costs
  • Low processing force needed
  • Very good notching effect
Ultrasonic Blades
  • Excellent separation effect achieved through high-frequency vibration
  • Extremely low processing force needed
  • Minimal wear and tear, e.g. with TPO foils
Release Agent Blades
  • Optimal separation effect, material will not reseal/heal
  • Absolutely no surface visibility caused by climate changes or aging
  • Most reliable process for skins over 0.8 mm thick
  • Programmable release agent application, monitored by camera
Rotary Blades
  • Developed specifically for leather scoring
  • Rotating circular blade (spindle with 90° angle, 1,000-10,000 rotations/minute)
  • Lower processing force due to tangential orientation
  • Does not leave pressure marks on delicate materials such as leather
