Besides design and development Roxel can manage the entire production of a rocket motor from structures, energetic and inert material to the assembly of those elements.
Roxel has four production sites, located in France (Saint Médard, Bourges, La Ferté Saint-Aubin) and the United-Kingdom (Summerfield), with the highest safety and quality standards in the field of pyrotechnics.
Roxel produces any type of energetic materials:
- Extruded double base (EDB),
- Cast double base (CDB),
Roxel masters the production of structures using a wide range of manufacturing processes such as:
- Steel strip laminate (SSL),
- Kevlar overwound aluminium (KOA),
- Laser welding including the motor final assembly.
Regarding inert materials, Roxel’s main processes are:
- Filament winding over propellant,
- Injection, (…. Displacement)
- Spray lining.
Integration and Quality control
The above elements and elementary parts procured externally are integrated into rocket motors in Roxel’s facilities.
At final assembly stage, Roxel ensures different operations such as sand blasting, welding, painting…
At each step of the production process, Roxel performs on site quality controls (including tests on specific benches).
Roxel has COFREND-COSAC level 1 and 2 (dye penetrant, ultrasonic inspection, radiology) certified personnel in France and ASNT level 3 (radiology, ultrasonics, magnetic particle and dye penetrant) certified personal in the UK.
Supply chain management is provided by a dedicated team spread over the different sites.
