Norco defence solutions at DSEI

Norco Holdings, the Poole, UK-based manufacturer of lightweight composite structures and GRP mouldings, will make its debut the upcoming Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) event in London to promote its growing role in providing lightweight composite structures to the Defence sector.

Within the defence industry, Norco manufactures satellite dishes and radomes to extremely tight tolerances.

The use of high performance prepreg materials, combining low loss skin and core materials, as well as innovative manufacturing and painting techniques developed in-house, all help in minimising transmission losses. Norco has also pioneered in-mould surfacing solutions to improve reflectivity at frequencies above 8GHz.

Norco has a complete capability in composite manufacturing, stretching from CAD design for manufacture, through patterns and moulds, to component production using sophisticated processes and finally assembly and fit. Norco also operates within the aerospace sector, manufacturing UAVs and flight simulators.

“We fully understand the importance of having a presence at DSEI, with many of our current and potential customers either exhibiting or planning on visiting the event,” said MD Mark Northey.  “The defence and security sector offers us significant opportunities as key properties of reduced weight and lower cost impact on buyer decisions. Our recent experience on diverse projects including UAVs, Naval work boats and simulators ensures we can offer customers world-class expertise in their composite requirements and we look forward to demonstrating this at DSEI this year.”

DSEI runs from September 12-15 at London ExCel. The show will have five key sector-focused Zones: Air, Land, Naval, Security and Joint, all showcasing the latest equipment and systems. Norco is at stand S4-250, which is part of the ADS UK Pavilion.
