Alcore Brigantine Upgrades Honeycomb Machining Capabilities

18 March 2008

Alcore Brigantine has announced they are expanding their existing facilities for machining non-metallic honeycombs (Nomex and Kevlar N636) in early April, 2008.

Since 1985, Alcore Brigantine has been a leading manufacturer of composite materials. Their skills at manufacturing honeycomb for the aerospace industry includes the production and finishing of aluminium honeycomb into ready-to-bond parts for aircraft composite structures.

Alcore Brigantine has 2 plants dedicated to honeycomb machining that are equipped for 5 axis milling and shaping of aluminium honeycomb finished parts. The expansion of their new facilities will accommodate a separate area dedicated to non-metallic Nomex and Kevlar honeycomb products.

These enhancements will allow Alcore Brigantine to supply machined aluminium and non-metallic honeycomb core details that are qualified to a wide range of aerospace qualifications.
