In 2009 I negotiated the purchase of very early authentic film type
honeycomb core manufacturing machinery from a long standing and now
closed business in Sydney. This machinery has known history dating back
to Johnson Brothers, who I believe had this machinery made here in Australia,
possibly as early as the 1930’s.
After more than 18 months of restoring this well worn vintage machinery
and with a combination of research, improved tooling and testing the core
has now been re-designed. This allows a core made with
0.15mm copper to be run as a serviceable core,
superior in design and endurance to the 0.11mm
copper used previously. This new core has been wind tunnel tested and I am
happy to be making a core more efficient than what I have imported and
fitted for many years. I already knew the performance of this imported core
and this new VHRC core is better!
Why serviceable? If you are going to spend good money on a honeycomb
radiator, why not ensure it is serviceable in 20+ years?
Looking forward to the future with "authentic machinery, new tooling,
new cores and a new attitude!"
