5M develops and manufactures aluminium sandwich panels with a honeycomb core in form of flat or shaped pieces (2D forms). Our technology allows us to make a sandwich panel according to our client’s requirements as for shapes, dimensions, a honeycomb cell size or quality of surface coatings. This can alternatively be made using inside (core-like) material which is basically an aluminium honeycomb structure even if the production technology also allows manufacturing sandwiches with a foam or plastic core.
Aluminium sandwich panels generally stand for their high mechanical resistance when keeping their very low weight. Regarding the production process, it’s possible to glue in different edges, inside reinforcing elements or other more complex customer structures, perforated honeycombs to evacuate air, metallic or other inserts (for holes or threads). As every demand is individual, please feel free to contact us for more detailed information about the application you require.
