Breadboard with flat working surface

Breadboard with flat working surface


Cost effective series of breadboards based on honeycomb or sandwich panels with thick CFRP cover plate.

Stiffness and thermal stability can be adjusted by varying CFRP plate thickness on top/bottom side of the board.

Technical specifications
