FIREARMS MANUFACTURING & MACHINING

FIREARM INDUSTRY SERVICES

Firearms range from small handguns to large weapons used by the military and other specialists. As such, they require many different parts and pieces.

We work with businesses in the firearms industry to produce the parts they require, however, we do not do assembly. The industry also requires a number of other special products, including tooling, triggers, safety equipment, fixtures and lower/upper receivers. Our trained experts can assist clients with many of these needs.

TYPICAL FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Here are a few of the typical applications of parts we create for the firearms industry.

icon

Small, Vital Parts

The small parts of the safety and the trigger are vital to firearms and safe use. Without these parts working as they should, the firearm could injure the user or others nearby.

icon

Precise & Durable Casings

The casings of every firearm must be made from strong materials, however must be exact to blueprint specifications.

Produce Prototypes Rapidly

Rapid Prototyping

In order to create new products, firearm manufacturers often need to design and create a series of prototypes. We can rapidly create the base prototype and subsequent versions until the final product is ready for mass production.

BENEFITS FOR FIREARMS INDUSTRY

Our specialized services provide the firearms industry with several benefits.

icon

Clean, Crisp Lines

The parts we cut have very clean, crisp lines without any damage or hanging pieces of material. This means they smoothly fit into the firearm, its clip, and any other accessories used.

icon

Runs of Various Sizes

Firearm Manufacturing often needs both very small and very large production runs. Our machines run 24 hours, so we can meet any of these needs.

Damage-Free Machining

We use Wire EDM to create triggers, fixtures and lower/upper receivers that have no burrs or other damage on the machined part.

Surface finish achievable with EDM

Nov 16, 2017

Surface finish is often called out on part prints. Sometimes it’s because it influences appearance, more often because it affects how surfaces slide over one another. Bearing surfaces and those used for sealing are examples of where finish is important. An EDM surface finish is different to that produced by conventional machining. Cutting processes produce…

Let EDM be your secret weapon

Oct 26, 2017

Thin walls, tight internal radii, tapers, deep blind pockets in hard materials. Sometimes it seems designers are just trying to find the limits of what manufacturing can do. It’s as if they’re hoping manufacturing will say, “Can’t be done.” The thing is, if manufacturing only has access to conventional machining processes they’re probably right. Some…

How accurate is wire EDM?

Oct 4, 2017

It’s only natural that designers and toolmakers should ask about the precision of EDM. Knowing the capabilities of the process informs design decisions and influences costs. Whether the parts being made are surgical instruments, extrusion dies, or aerospace components, it’s important to know what tolerances are achievable. Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer. While accuracies of…

Wire EDM is Not Just for Tooling

You can think of wire EDM as the non-contact, 21st Century version of the fretsaw. A fretsaw is used to cut complex shapes from blocks of wood. The key to its versatility is the blade, which is essentially just an abrasive wire. Being thin and able to cut on all sides, the woodworker can turn it easily to follow…
