Morishin Kougyou Co., Ltd.
We specialize in the business of lightweight, high-strength aluminum honeycomb panels.
Our company specializes in the business of lightweight, high-strength, high-accuracy aluminum honeycomb panels. We provide integrated processing from design and manufacturing to surface treatment and post-processing. Our products have been adopted in various fields, such as aerospace, automobiles and vehicles, printing machines, LCDs, semiconductors, solar batteries, medical equipment, production equipment, building materials, and furniture and interiors. We have been accumulating know-how about aluminum honeycomb panels since our foundation in 1979. We have established a production system capable of handling both single articles and mass production and are extending our business volume.
- What are aluminum honeycomb panels?
Aluminum honeycomb panels are an ideal material featuring ultra-light weight, high strength, high accuracy, and workability. This material was developed in the UK for the purpose of reducing aircraft weight by spreading hexagons without gaps like a beehive to realize the toughest structure from the least materials. About 90% of its volume is air, so an aluminum honeycomb panel has many excellent properties like ultra-light weight and high strength. The material also features flatness of about ±0.05 mm/m, and metal machining and surface treatment like general metal materials are possible. This is why our product is used in various fields from aerospace to automobiles and other vehicles, printers, LCD panels, semiconductors, solar batteries, medical equipment, production facilities, building materials, and furniture and interiors.
- Advantages of aluminum honeycomb panels
Light weight and high strength (high rigidity and compressive strength) Excellent flatness
The weight of an aluminum honeycomb panel is about one-eleventh that of iron and one-fifth compared to aluminum. Despite their light weight these panels show the same flexural rigidity (theoretical value) compared with other materials. The compressive strength (theoretical value) is also up to about 400 tons per square meter, which is very excellent. An aluminum honeycomb panel uses an aluminum honeycomb core realized by the aluminum foil of the honeycomb structure. This is why high strength (high rigidity and compressive strength) can be realized despite the ultra-light weight, because about 90% of its volume is air. This is an ideal material that has been satisfying many requests for great weight reduction without sacrificing strength. Aluminum honeycomb panels feature excellent flatness of about ±0.05 mm per square meter. This is why aluminum honeycomb panels are used in products where high flatness is required. This includes vacuum chucks <http://www.morishin.com/case/case001.html>, reflectors <http://www.morishin.com/case/case005.html> , and various articles such as jigs, surface plates, vibration isolation tables, and vibration absorbing tables.
Complicated high-precision machining possible
Our company can machine aluminum honeycomb panels in exactly the same way as general metal materials. Processes include hole boring, tapped hole boring, counterboring, opening, pocketing, notching, and grooving. Our company possesses several machining centers and NC processing machines, so we can handle any kind of high-precision machining in-house.
Multifunctional and with a wide range of applications
Aluminum honeycomb panels are not just a plate material. A vacuum chuck <http://www.morishin.com/case/case001.html> may have adsorption holes of an arbitrary diameter and pitch, so we can manufacture even a single custom-made vacuum chuck with your specified specifications. If a radiant plate with high reflectivity is used for the surface, we can manufacture lightweight, high-strength, high-flatness reflectors <http://www.morishin.com/case/case005.html>. The range of application of aluminum honeycomb panels is expanding because various other functions can be added.

[Company strength] Our company has a history of over 30 years as a specialist manufacturer of aluminum honeycomb panels. Now many of our customers consider our company to be a byword for aluminum honeycomb panels. We have the following corporate advantages. (1) We have established a production system capable of handling production from single articles to mass production. (2) As a general rule we make same-day quotations throughout the year. This handling speed is highly appreciated by our customers. (3) We can satisfy various needs with our integrated in-house processing from design to manufacturing and processing. [Business description] Our company designs, manufactures, and sells aluminum honeycomb panels. We provide integrated production of lightweight, high-strength, high-accuracy aluminum honeycomb panels from design and manufacturing to surface treatment and post-processing. We have established a production system capable of handling orders from single articles to mass production. Our products have been adopted in various fields, such as aerospace, automobiles and vehicles, printing machines, LCDs, semiconductors, solar batteries, medical equipment, production equipment, building materials, and furniture and interiors. [Industry] Aluminum honeycomb panel manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] We optimize the use of the features of aluminum honeycomb panels to provide products having the following advantages.
