Honeycomb sandwich panels are a common structural form, mixing high rigidity, low weight and low thermal inertia, and are a preferred structure for glass mirror substrates. Their attribute of low thermal inertia, and the resulting absence of convective distortion, has recently been recognized as a fundamental advantage for large ground-based optical systems. Honeycomb is a popular core material for structural foam panels because of its high strength to weight ratio and resistance to fatigue failures. A wide variety of products including metals and composite materials have been employed to make the honeycomb cores.
honeycomb composite panels are widely used from aerospace to recreation.They are determined in transportation vehicles on land, from cars and trucks to high-speed trains. By sea, they can be found from fast ferries to giant ships.Widely used in partitions, ceilings, house trailer doors and floors, honeycomb panels replace sheets of plywood and metal in nearly every application of nearly every industry. Honeycomb panels are also easily damaged in the factory before they are installed and Vulvox’s product will reduce damage at the site of manuafcture. They will replace heavier assemblies of honeycomb sandwich panels with lighter, stronger structures. Thus the panels are widely used in many industrial and commercial applications of the day-to-day life. Thus, each panel possessing some different characteristics suitable for that particular environment.
Individual panels can include integrally bonded hard points to accept heavy attachments. After being machined on the in-house 3 axis CNC Router, panels can be fitted with potted inserts to provide attachments for brackets, shelving and other fittings.
