This will allow Quickstep to fully meet the sophisticated requirements from its flare housing customer, Chemring Australia, and other aerospace customers, with a “one-button” actuation.

“We were extremely pleased to have collaborated with Radius on the flare housing project,” Steve Osborne, Quickstep’s general manager of business development, said.

“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.”
