Size Really Does Matter

The largest Sheeter Stacker machine manufactured to date
by Dependable System Engineering.

There has long been a debate whether size matters or not. We are here to tell you, indeed, size does matter!

As an OEM, Dependable System Engineering manufactures various sizes of Sheeter Stacker machinery to customer specifications. The end product of each machine is to produce sheets used for the manufacture of honeycomb core & composite panels for a specific industry such as aerospace, marine, military, etc.

The smallest Sheeter Stacker machine we've manufactured to date was 8"w x 24"l. Our customer used it in their test laboratory to test materials.

Our in-production manufactured Sheeter Stacker machines have varied in size according to customer need with the smallest overall dimensions being 18"w x 87"l. The largest machine we manufactured to date shown above measured 39"w (or 1m) x 170"l.

Sheeter Stacker machines are manufactured according to customer specifications to allow for their specific type of materials, size of sheeting & physical space for the machine itself as well as stacking of the finished sheets. These measurements & more are taken into consideration when Dependable System Engineering engineers & manufactures your Sheeter Stacker machine.

So you see, size really does matter - a lot.

Aerospace Applications for Aluminum Honeycomb Core Panels

Dependable System Engineering is available to assist you with your next project.

There are 3 primary points for the use of aluminum honeycomb core panels in the Aerospace Industry:

  1. They are lightweight to allow for optimization of aerodynamics.
  2. They are very strong to ensure safety of the personnel & handle the physical challenges of flight.
  3. They are heat resistant to keep the structure stable during flight & withstand the extreme fluctuations in temperatures during high speed &/or high altitude flight.

Aluminum honeycomb materials also provide these additional properties which are highly desirable in Aerospace applications:

  1. Very high strength to weight ratio (up to 30x traditional laminates)
  2. Will not absorb moisture & thus resists mold & fungal growth
  3. High resistance to heat & shear forces

As an OEM, Dependable System Engineering is the worldwide leader of honeycomb core composite structural panel machinery.  We have been working with aluminum honeycomb for over 40 years helping companies improve their quality & productivity.  Visit our website, DepSysEng.com, or call us at 941.351.6330 for additional information.
