HALCYON, EXPERT IN THE FIELD OF COMPLEX ALUMINUM HONEYCOMB SANDWICH PANELS
From design to industrialization, we adapt your technical parts to the aluminum sandwich process.
The advantages of aluminum honeycomb sandwich structures:
- Mass gain for identical mechanical properties
- Reduction in raw material losses
- Recyclability of aluminum
- Innovation for 3D parts with complex shapes
- Process adaptable to small, medium and large series
Honeycomb parts are already very widespread in the transport industries: they are made up of 2 skins with good mechanical characteristics and a light core. These 2 materials combined make it possible to obtain lightweight structures with very good mechanical properties.
However, in today’s industry, most of these parts are simple and flat. Today, thanks to the patent filed by Halcyon in 2015, all part geometries adapt to this technology!
Indeed, thanks to Halcyon’s know-how in forming or machining honeycomb, your complex parts adapt to our process. We have already worked on cylindrical, conical, or double-curved parts for our customers.
Today, Halcyon is the only manufacturer capable of forming complex sandwich panels with aluminum skins and an aluminum honeycomb core. This innovation offers a new alternative to fiber composite materials: the material offered by Halcyon is recyclable and production costs are more advantageous.
