Sunstone’s Honeycomb Welders
Honeycomb’s strength-to-weight ratio and other features make it a very popular and useful material within the aerospace and other industries. Typical honeycomb materials consist of aluminum, titanium, Iconel®, and Hastelloy® among others.
Sunstone Technology makes welding these various honeycomb materials fast and easy. Possible welds include welding both similar and non-similar metals together, along with a long list of different metals and metal thicknesses.
Depending on the honeycomb application, Sunstone welders can be used to weld and manufacture the core structures, along with tacking and join the face sheets to the tops and bottoms, thus creating a composite honeycomb sandwich panel.

Honeycomb Welding Systems
Sunstone’s most advanced Resistance welding system. With the power of an HF Inverter, but the Control and low-end welding capabilities of a Linear DC. The Linear DC includes advanced features that allow for current monitoring, Touch Screen Controls, Saved settings, and handpiece and foot pedal activation.
The CD 1100 DP Welding Power supply is a capacitive discharge system with Dual pulse control. The CD1100 has the power to complete most welds but also can be turned down to achieve small, lower energy welds, making it a very versatile system. Foot pedal, handpiece, or weld head weld activations are available.
Opposed weld head with various actuation methods including pneumatic & Manual cable driven. The WH1125A allows for consistent pressure at the weld site. It also provides for easy weld activation and increased productivity.
Honeycomb Welding Electrode
The Honeycomb Welding Electrode is designed to provide the perfect welding electrode for use welding honeycomb. This electrode includes a rubber material that allows each line of the honeycomb to come in contact with the electrode and gives a slight flex to ensure even consistant contact.
This Pistol Grip handpiece is one of the most popular handpieces, and for a good reason. The pistol grip comfortably allows you to get a good handle and apply pressure to the weld site. With a simple trigger button, it is easy to complete most weld.
Pressure Actuated Single Probe Hand Piece. Pressure is equally important as energy in resistance welding. The use of a pressure actuated handpiece allows for consistent pressure with each weld. Allowing for optimal welding results, with the freedom of a handpiece.
