Aluminium Honeycomb Uses in Train Interior Design
Aluminium honeycomb is a lightweight structural material with high strength to weight properties, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. The honeycomb cell shape is based on the hexagonal shape with which the walls of beehives are constructed because the hexagon is one of nature’s strongest shapes. It requires the least amount of material to support the highest weight due to the geometry of its design.
Corex Honeycomb has been manufacturing high quality aluminium honeycomb for the last 20 years and sells the material to companies worldwide. The company offers a wealth of expertise together with the ability to export the honeycomb all over the world. Due to its extraordinary strength-to-weight ratio, Corex’s honeycomb is widely sought-after and suitable for use wherever lightness and strength are required.
What makes Corex’s honeycomb even more special are the properties of the core material, aluminium. It is strong, corrosion-resistant and a good conductor of heat and electricity. 100% recyclable, without any loss of its natural qualities. The company can supply its honeycomb in different forms; expanded or unexpanded, full blocks or cut slices, perforated or unperforated.
Post-pandemic, stakeholders in the rail industry understand the need to improve the services and appearance of trains to regain the trust of passengers. Rail patrons understand now more than ever that smart, strategic thinking and creative solutions are needed to attract people back to the rails by upgrading train designs and tailoring train interiors to better suit present and future passenger needs.
Train shows are organised around the world to explore, share the latest developments, applications, and research tailored towards making train rides ever better. InnoTrans, the leading international trade show in Europe for transportation technology, is one such show. InnoTrans 2022 will be held at the Berlin Expocentre from September 20-23.
Aluminium Honeycomb properties
Aluminium honeycomb provides a valuable solution to train interior design, being durable, sustainable, and lightweight. Corex aluminium honeycomb core is light and strong and corrosion resistant, making it durable and perfect for train interior applications such as s train doors, floors, furniture, galleys, sanitary modules and partitions.
Corex Honeycomb will exhibit at the upcoming InnoTrans 2022, in Hall 3.1 occupying stand 291. The company will share with the rail industry its latest applications and products for train interiors.
