Honeycomb backing curved bronze panels is Kikukawa’s proprietary metalworking technology that stems from honeycomb backing stainless or aluminium panels.
When consulted to fabricate bronze balustrade panels over 2m in width, Kikukawa developed and solidified two technologies – honeycomb backed bronze copper alloys and honeycomb backed curved panels. The resulting panel has high strength and the honeycomb backing upholds the panel’s flatness and curvature.
Honeycomb backing curved panels are applicable to other materials.
Honeycomb backing curved bronze panels were solidified by overcoming various challenges. This methodology allows us to fabricate products that are precise in dimension and high in quality.
The products are fabricated with care and each process has measures to ensure the quality of the products, such as jigs. However, the methodology of the final quality inspection is defined to ensure the bond strength and precision of the panels. Specialized equipment is used to test the bond strength.
