For the armament industry, which includes the production of firearms, ammunition, and other defense-related components, precision and reliability are crucial. GWS Tool Group provides a variety of cutting tools that are specifically engineered to meet the demanding standards of this sector. Here are some of the GWS tools suitable for armament manufacturing:

  • Carbide Drills:
    • These drills are essential for creating precise holes in components such as firearm barrels, receivers, and ammunition casings. GWS carbide drills can feature coolant-through capabilities, which are vital for efficient chip evacuation and temperature control during drilling operations in tough materials like steel and titanium.
  • Carbide End Mills:
    • Used for milling operations, these tools are crucial for the detailed machining of firearm components, including the complex contours of receivers and slides. GWS offers a variety of end mills with different geometries and coatings to enhance performance and durability in various materials.
  • Thread Mills:
    • Thread milling is important for creating accurate and durable threads in firearm components, such as suppressor attachments and bolt assemblies. GWS thread mills ensure high precision and excellent thread quality.
  • Reamers:
    • To achieve the high precision and smooth finishes required in the bore of a firearm barrel or other critical assemblies, GWS provides high-quality carbide reamers. These ensure tight tolerances and a superior finish, essential for the functionality and accuracy of firearms.
  • Custom Tool Solutions:
    • Given the specific and often proprietary nature of armament manufacturing, GWS also offers custom tooling solutions designed to meet unique challenges, such as unusual material properties or complex component geometries.
  • PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) and CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) Tools:
    • For high wear resistance and precision in machining abrasive materials or achieving long tool life in mass production settings, GWS offers tools made from PCD and CBN.
  • Engraving Tools:
    • GWS engraving tools are used for marking serial numbers and other identifiers on firearm components, which is a legal requirement in many regions. These tools provide precise and clear markings essential for traceability and compliance.

These cutting tools from GWS Tool Group are designed to handle the unique requirements of the armament industry, ensuring that each component meets the necessary specifications for safety, performance, and regulatory compliance.
