Laboratory Testing

Laboratory testing in a firearms factory is a crucial stage in the weapon production process. Its purpose is to ensure that the firearms meet specified quality requirements and are safe to use. The factory laboratories perform various tests depending on the type and intended use of the firearms. One of the most important tests is testing the mechanical strength of materials used in firearm production. This involves using different types of testing equipment, such as tensile, bending, and torsion testing machines, to examine strength under different conditions.

Galvanic Coatings

Galvanic coating of steel is a process in which the surface of steel is covered with a thin layer of metal through electroplating. The most commonly used metals for coating steel are chromium, nickel, and zinc. Zinc is widely used for coating steel due to its protective properties. The zinc coating forms a protective layer on the surface of the steel, protecting it from corrosion and mechanical damage.

Heat and thermochemical treatment

Both heat treatment and thermochemical treatment are important processes in the industry that improve the quality and durability of materials in many applications. They allow for the production of materials with better mechanical properties, making them more resistant to challenging conditions, resulting in more efficient and durable tools, machines, and devices.

Plastic Forming

An eccentric press is a machine used to shape objects such as cut-outs, welds, or indentations. Cold plastic forming of gun barrels is a process of manufacturing firearm barrels by shaping steel tubes to achieve the desired shape and size. In this process, the barrels are formed cold, without the need for high temperatures.

Precision Material Cutting

Precision material cutting by water and electro-erosion methods are two technologically advanced cutting processes that allow for very accurate and repeatable cuts. Waterjet cutting uses a high-pressure water jet, while electro-erosion wire cutting is a method that utilizes electrical energy to remove material.

Machining is the process of manufacturing parts by removing material from the workpiece using cutting tools such as mills, lathes, drills, planers, or grinders. During machining, the tool works on the surface of the workpiece, removing layers of material until the desired dimensions and shape of the part are achieved. Machining is used in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical, and many others, to produce high-precision and high-quality machine components and tools.
