Aerospace Technology Torsion Box Panels

Sing Core is providing new, space age solutions to old technologies that have been used in transportation industries for years.

sing-core-used-in-aerospace-international-aircraft-lightweight-high-strength-tru-flatYou might be as surprised, as much as we are, to find that many leading-edge technologically advanced transportation manufacturers who build the most high-tech aircraft, boat and train vehicles and containers often use old technology in the ground support of the manufacturing process.

Industry-wide, aerospace, marine, mass transit, rail and trucking industries are now starting to upgrade ground support systems for their manufacturing process that has not been updated since the late sixties.

Temporary Floor Upgrade

For instance, while building a large project, temporary floors are used during the manufacturing process. In many cases, these floor s need to support the weight of carts, instruments and heavy equipment as well as bear the weight of the heavy trafficking construction crews without fail.

The traditional method dictated that plywood (often metal clad) would be cut in the exact shape and size of actual flooring that would be installed following the manufacture. This temporary flooring system has been used for years, and though it has become customary to use it, it is simply not as practical as using an advanced system like Sing Core’s.

The Sing Core temporary flooring system is a new advancement for these industries increasing ground support exponentially, by delivering, custom-sized flooring panels that are exactly the same dimensions as final finished flooring, yet have the following attributes:

  • Are true flat with minimal deflection even under weight bearing loads
  • Lightweight, reducing labor and transportation costs of assembly and disassembly
  • Designed to withstand regular vehicular weight, movement and stress
  • Last longer, reducing repair/replacement

Regular Maintenance or Periodic Overhaul

Whether your application is in the original manufacturing process or for regular aviation maintenance checks and periodic overhaul, Sing Core temporary floor system will provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) shops with the lightweight, high strength, superior solution for your next D check heavy maintenace visit (HMV).

Fewer on the Job Injuries

prevent-slip-trip-and-fall-accidents-with-sing-temporary-flooring-solutionsAccording tot he U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents and 15% of these lead to accidental deaths. Avoid the hazardous employee or contractor exposure by upgrading your existing temporary floor solution to the more effective Sing temporary floor solution.

Traditional plywood temporary floor treatments are less effective and potentially dangerous in comparison and may actually contribute to more potential on the job injuries. Plywood is heavy and difficult to maneuver, transport and breaks down over time becoming frayed and causing exposed slivers which could lead to compounding injuries during installation and removal.

Protect your staff with sing temporary floors. Sing temporary flooring can support high-traffic, weight and heavy construction activity without fail with high PSI (independently tested at the University of Washington at 660 PSI) and little deflection over long spans (as little as 1/32, or more) for a more secure working environment preventing risk. And handling Sing temporary flooring prevents injury during installation, dismantle and transport due to being much lighter weight when compared to other materials and does not easily breakdown over time, like plywood which is heavy and not as strong (even if aluminum-clad).

Sing temporary floor solution is an effective way to protect construction and maintenance workers who are working in large aircraft, sea vessels, ship yards, marine terminals, construction sites, stairwells, rail cars, elevators or skylights to avoid injury due to worker slip and fall or protection from falling equipment or debris.

Temporary Food Service Floor

Other temporary floor uses include temporary food service flooring used in mobile or seasonal eateries, restricted menu establishments, bed and breakfast kitchens and food service caterers.

Transportation

Stronger than Steel, Lighter than Steel.

Your door doesn’t have to be steel to be strong. SINGCORE Metal Composite Panels are stronger and lighter than solid steel panels. SINGCORE Aluminum and Steel Honeycomb Panels are also stronger and lighter than overhead steel garage doors, which can be dented by something as small as a golf ball. Sing offers pricing competitive with steel panels of any type.

The torsion box core holds the Sing Metal Panel flat so that it will not warp and sag. A 16lb steel hammer will easily dent a steel or vinyl door, but not a Sing Metal Panel. Because Sing panels are efficient to produce, they are more affordable than solid steel panels.

Advantages:

Eco friendly – Sing Core uses more renewable materials than any other type of composite panel. Sing Core also last many times longer than most of its competitors. It takes very little energy to produce Sing Core panels with our recycled and renewable structure material.

 

High Strength – Sing Core is much stronger than paper honeycomb ,aluminum honeycomb, and plastic honeycomb. A 2 in x 2 in piece of Sing Core was tested by the University of Washington and reached 660 PSI. The core grid is more than 10 times the strength of aluminum honeycomb with the same size of grids.

Lightweight – As light as 4 lbs per cubic foot.

True Flat – Sing Core aluminum will stay straight even the drastic swing by temperature and moisture change.

Fully Insulated – With EPS or urethane foam (R3.5-6.5 per inch).

Sound Deadening – Sing Core panels feel like solid wood panels, they do not sound hollow like other types of honeycomb core.

Transportation – Ships, railcars, semitrailers, truck bodies, aircraft, luxury yachts
