Abstract : Contouring aluminum honeycomb core by mechanical means is difficult and expensive. A revolutionary method of contouring by chemical milling has been invented. This process has been successfully applied to 1/4 inch cell-sized cores. The problem was to contour 1/8 inch cell-sized cores, since this is a production item. This project was an attempt to adapt the process to 1/8 inch cell-sized cores. (Author)
