Abstract:

The present invention is a process for making a honeycomb structure of a selected material, having the steps a disposing molten material in a melt container disposed over a mold, where the melt container has an opening for releasing molten material into the mold, where the mold is shaped for molding the honeycomb structure b moving the melt container relative to the mold, where the molten material flows out of the opening into the mold and c removing the mold from the material. Another aspect of the invention is an apparatus for making a honeycomb structure of a selected material, including a a mold shaped for molding the honeycomb structure b a melt container, disposed over the mold, having an opening for releasing molten material into the mold and c a conveyor, for moving the melt container relative to the mold as the melt container releases the molten material into the mold.
