Many applications and industries require plastic parts and components machined from heat-resistant polymers. These plastic materials must stand up to harsh environments, extreme temperatures, and repeated use without degradation of performance. However, choosing the best high-temperature plastic for your planned use can sometimes be challenging.

 

Challenges of CNC Machining Honeycomb Panels

February 25, 2022

Honeycomb cores are a popular choice for applications throughout many industries, including aerospace, aeronautic, automotive, naval, and others. The layered hexagonal structure creates high strength and excellent stiffness to weight ratio. However, honeycomb core panels are notoriously difficult to machine due to the weak rigidity present in the in-plane direction of the cellular materials. Due to the challenges in machining honeycomb panels, many engineers choose materials and structures less suited to their planned use or waste time and resources inefficiently machining honeycomb core.
