Why paper honeycomb?
Paper honeycomb is the ideal core material for providing inside structure when light weight, strength and cost are key considerations. Applications include interior doors, furniture, automotive parts and packaging materials. It is a green product consisting out of all-natural paper and water based glue.
A honeycomb is a 6 angular structure which is also frequently used as a construction material in nature. This because physically speaking the honeycomb structure is one of the most strong shapes. Bees with their honeycomb are an example of this.
Unique Axxion-SSC system
Axxion-SSC stands for 'Axxion-Single Step Core' production.
This concept has been developed to an extra-ordinary efficient level of production.
The Axxor Core honeycomb is made in one step, in-line, at high speed, with multiple rolls, with tight tolerances, unique cutting and up to large widths.
Old technique: Block manufacturing
This in contrast to block manufacturing, which is the oldest and most common production process in the industry.
It is a three step production process and takes a throughput time of up to several days. The honeycomb is cut with a guillotine knife resulting in a closed paper top structure and height tolerances up to +/- 0,4 mm.
This approach is not suitable for the production of wide core in a controlled manner.
The glueing of the blocks, in order to create endless core, disrupts the uniform flow of exactly the same cell structure.
Old technique: Continuous Honeycomb System (CHS)
From the mid 70's the Continuous Honeycomb System (CHS) was a breakthrough for making Honeycomb in one step. However, cutting is not very controlled in these older machines, resulting in considerable tolerance fluctuations and in limitations on width and output. On all these important product specification the Axxion-SSC production is a significant technological advance.
