Quickstep Holdings have announced that a €4.24 million ($6.2 million AUD) contract to deliver the first Qure technology for a commercial client is nearing completion.

Quickstep explains that European aerospace composites manufacturer ORPE Technologiya, has tested and accepted the Qure machine for installation at its premises. The machine was tailored to ORPE’s specification and has successfully produced 6 metre by 4 metre carbon fibre parts which will be used to shield satellites during launch. The installation is expected to be completed at ORPE’s premises next financial year.

Quickstep Managing Director, David Marino, said “We are pleased to report that the Qure machine has performed to the quality and specifications required by our client, and has been approved for installation. This is a strong endorsement of our Qure technology which will lead to further aerospace industry opportunities for Quickstep.”

According to Quickstep, the Qure technology is a unique, patented technology that moulds carbon‐fibre components using fluids instead of standard autoclave techniques, reducing costs and processing time. Quickstep says Qure is a new alternative to an autoclave that offers the aerospace industry greater flexibility and more control over the curing cycle when carbon‐fibre composite components are made.
