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!"
