Carrier for Rifle
Benefit: Improved Performance, Increased Component Complexity
Main Forming Process: Metal Injection Moulding
End Use Sector: Defence
Material: Ferrous

Finishing: Heat Treated


This MIM component is for use on a rifle, and is a new part to provide additional functions. The geometry of the part and of the mould employed in its production by MIM were generated by computer. At first, attempts were made to produce the carrier from sheet by cold forming but this was not successful.
