Quickstep MOD QS5 composite manufacturing facility

quickstepThe Quickstep (QS) process uses a hot liquid filled mould to heat and cure composites. As the liquid has a much higher thermal conductivity than the gas used in autoclave cures, QS results in cheaper and much faster cure cycles.

The system uses a simple computer control which is easy to use and allows accurate control of the plant. Highly complex shapes can be achieved using different tool configurations.
