Quickstep and Radius Engineering collaborate on flare housing

Quickstep Holdings Limited and Radius Engineering, Inc. announce their collaboration to establish a state-of-the-art facility for the manufacturing of composite housings for the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter aircraft's countermeasure flares. The RTM manufacturing workcell from Radius Engineering was installed at Quickstep's Bankstown facility in NSW, Australia.

Quickstep's in-house advanced composite solution QPS 4.0 (Quickstep Production System 4.0) now incorporates Radius Engineering's RTM workcell featuring a 100 Ton Press and resin injector fully integrated with Radius' FloWare software. With "one-button" actuation, Quickstep can fully meet the sophisticated requirements from its flare housing customer, Chemring Australia, and other aerospace customers.

Steve Osborne, General Manager, Business Development of Quickstep said, "We were extremely pleased to have collaborated with Radius on the flare housing project. Their knowledge of advanced composite processes and the aerospace industry was invaluable and we have developed a strong and cooperative relationship. Radius made an important contribution to our highly automated and digitalised manufacturing cell, which is capable of delivering higher volumes of composite flare housings at a lower cost."

Dimitrije Milovich, President, Radius Engineering said, "We are very proud to work with Quickstep. Our expertise in net-shaped composites manufacturing blended perfectly with Quickstep's tight process specifications and rigorous quality standards. Meeting an aggressive schedule, we created a world-class RTM manufacturing workcell capable of delivering products of the highest quality." About Quickste
