Production Engineering
Traditional batch wise production of honeycomb cores result in high production costs, limiting the use in non-aerospace applications. The continuous in-line production processes of EconCores allow for a more cost efficient production. The patented production processes expand the price range of honeycomb cores to a new, so far not possible region. Especially a 4 mm to 16 mm thick core can be produced very cost efficiently. The bonding of skins onto the core material (by lamination) allows to produce a sandwich panel directly inline with the core production. This flexible and cost efficient in-line lamination offers the option to directly produce a panel without storage of the core eliminating thus handling and storage costs.

Our technologies can be integrated in the production environment of our customers to enable maximal cost savings. Optimized production lines are designed and realized with support of experienced machine builders in close cooperation with licensees.
