Safety & Quality

Barood Ammunition Factory is operating under high quality management systems and employee intensive safety methods. Below are tools used to ensure products are manufactured to the optimal standards:

The Spectrometer

A machine that analyzes the composition of the materials to assure that the correct raw materials are being used before it proceeds to production.

Electronic Height Gauge

An essential tool to ensure that materials are of uniform and required dimensions before it proceeds to production. It can also be used to check whether finished products have the correct specifications.

Ammunition Test Gun

This process is used to measure gun-firing parameters such as, gas pressure curves, interior ballistic times, projectile velocities, and for ammunition precision tests. Shooting into a tunnel, which is equipped to measure the said variables, does this testing process.

Process Control Gauges

High-end process control gauges that are computerized to ensure that the dimensions of the products are being manufactured according to specification.

Mercurous Nitrate (MN) Test

This is an accelerated test being performed to detect the presence of internal stresses that might weaken the individual parts in storage or in production due to stress corrosion cracking.

Precision Light Screen

This testing system ensures a highly accurate determination of the shot positions of single rounds or bursts of fire.
