Most table manufacturers use a metal honeycomb core, which conducts vibrations and has multiple resonant frequencies, and then install tuned vibration dampers to try to suppress the resonance’s. These dampers are size specific and add significant weight to the table. The nonmetallic honeycomb core in VERE's tables is designed to absorb vibrations. Our tables have better vibration performance than metal honeycomb tables without the need for damping, or the extra weight.
Our standard honeycomb core is available standard in 1/2, 1, 2 , 4, 8, 12, 16 and 20 inch thickness’ to offer the optimum choice in vibration damping, strength and weight.
Core thickness’ of 2" or 4" are recommended for boards under 4 feet long or longer boards which are evenly supported. 8" or thicker cores should be used for 6 - 8 foot and larger tables and where static or dynamic compliance is critical.
Despite our low price, our honeycomb core features a very small cell size (3/8 inch). The small cell size puts more of the core in contact with the metal surface. For those applications where the core must be Aluminum or Stainless Steel, please consult our Sales Department for special pricing.
