    Ultrasonic Cleaners Used to Clean Military Weapons

    Soon, Ultrasonic Cleaning Tanks may be kept on patrol bases so that soldiers won't have to rely on good old fashioned elbow grease when cleaning the dirt off their artillery. Trials are taking place on selected rifles and machine guns, with the Ultrasonic Cleaners possibly being rolled out to 5 regiments if they prove to be a success.

    Guided Rail Fitted to British Made Shutters Workshop



    Using the highest quality methods and premium quality materials, BMS are specialists when it comes to creating made-to-measure shutters at their Evesham workshop with over 20 years of joinery experience. Accuracy and precision are a vital area of crafting these shutters which is why BSM have approached us to fit a digital readout to their saw, making sure every cut is exactly the length needed to the nearest 5 micron.

    Our Guided Carriage was selected as this offered a simple fitting, with its own linear guide to maintaining the required gap between the reading head and magnetic tape. A rod end linkage is then connected to the carriage which allows for a high level of miss-alignment to the existing saw flip stop. The encoders work on a non-contact magnetic tape system with a full IP67 sealed encapsulated reading head. Click here to see how it works.
