Summit participants tour EconCore facilities during two day gathering on implementing lightweight honeycomb core technology.
Summit participants tour EconCore facilities during two day gathering on implementing lightweight honeycomb core technology.

EconCore, one of the leaders in lightweight honeycomb core manufacturing technology, organized a Technology Summit in early October with a focus on its patented ThermHex process.

ThermHex process enables the production of themoplastic honeycomb materials directly from the extruder or from a roll of material and combines a thermoforming, folding and bonding operation, producing cost-efficient folded honeycomb cores in various cell sizes, densities and thicknesses from a wide range of thermoplastic polymers.

Wabash National, a commercial transportation manufacturer in North America, updated the panel on their plans for a new production line in Lafayette, Indiana. "Our approach is to lead with innovation and diversification," said Gustavo Sumcad, Director of Engineering at Wabash. "EconCore provides the most innovative technology for the production of lightweight honeycomb sandwich panels. This is something we have not seen in the market for a very long time."

Salomón and Daniel Kalach, VP of Operations and VP of Manufacturing respectively at Fynotej in Mexico, a specialist in textiles including automotive interior, said, "We learned a lot over the two days of this summit, which will be of benefit to us as we move towards the start-up of our production line in early 2018. The opportunity for collaboration with other licensees is very promising."

During the two-day gathering, the participants also toured EconCore's facilities at Leuven, Belgium, and were shown the latest investments and state-of-the-art capabilities of the company to support its licensees. "Our goal is to continuously improve upon the technology to further optimize the process and open new application possibilities," said Tomasz Czarnecki, COO at EconCore. "We are preparing for an exciting future."
