Honeycombs

EconCore provides technology for cost efficient continuous production of honeycomb cores.

EconCore materials and processes combine aerospace honeycomb technology with efficient packaging production technologies. This enables cost efficient continuous production of paper honeycombs and thermoplastic honeycombs by successive in-line operations for automotive, furniture, building and packaging applications.

The EconCore honeycomb cores provide in these application areas
three key advantages: 

1. Fast and continuous in-line core production and in-line panel lamination   
    = Minimal costs
2. Excellent mechanical properties, structure similar to aerospace honeycombs 
    = Minimal weight 
3. Recycable materials (thermoplastic polymers and natural fibres) 
    = Minimal environmental impact 

The folded honeycomb concept was developed at the K.U.Leuven in Belgium.

Our technology to continuously produce honeycomb cores combines the excellent mechanical properties and the low weight of aerospace honeycomb with the automated production and low production cost of packaging processes. The folded honeycomb core material (ThermHex) and its cost efficient continuous production processes is protected by granted patent families.

Our core materials are most suitable to replace homogeneous materials and foam cores in the thickness range from 4 mm to 16 mm in cost sensitive high volume applications.
