Argosy‘s AXAC Joint Venture differs from its competitors in four important ways:
AXAC manufactures aluminum honeycomb core in a state-of-the-art facility as part of a joint venture with Xi’an Aircraft. The highly automated plant is AS9100C/ISO9001:2008 and US Coast Guard certified.
Argosy‘s ACAM subsidiary provides aluminum and aramid paper honeycomb core products and services:
Argosy Composite Advanced Materials LLC (ACAM), located in Huntsville Alabama USA, features a carefully designed cutting room (vertical band saws), industrial dust collection system, and a staging area for material. Inventory locations are dedicated for standard stock material (HOBE commercial grade 3000 and 5052 series) and customer specific stock material. To constantly monitor quality of product and produce expanded core product, an expander table has been installed. The configuration of the new space allows for future growth such as additional saws and room for inventory. Initially, the cutting room will be dedicated to serve panel manufacturers involved in the aerospace clean room, mass transport, marine, and building industries.
ACAM allows Argosy to provide value-added honeycomb core cut to each customer’s unique and exacting specifications. Argosy’s unique approach to the honeycomb business is focused solely on providing core. This facility greatly expands Argosy’s capabilities and helps our customers enhance their manufacturing processes and increase their efficiency with proven and reliable honeycomb core solutions.
The facility provides US panel manufacturers with a local manufacturer and distributor of honeycomb core products. Argosy also provides a dedicated Customer Service team and value added services such as Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) storage solutions, consignment opportunities, slotted core, and cutting and kitting services.
