Regardless of reason, political persuasion or your own personal feelings – one thing is true about guns – the demand is through the roof right now. Many gun part manufacturers can’t make product fast enough to keep up with the demand. There are standing orders for all types of gun parts at many manufacturers throughout the country. This graph below illustrates the growth of demand during 2012-2013.
As you can see the demand for guns, in particular AR-15s and other semi-automatic weapons have increased dramatically. Naturally, a growth in demand for gun parts has forced gun part manufacturers to re-examine their production processes and tooling choices. As a trusted partner with our gun part manufacturers, we have come up with new carbide cutting tools and production processes that have significantly reduced machining gun parts cycle times. In this short 2 minute video, Tom Greene, President and CEO of Greene Tool Systems talks about some of the new capabilities he has developed.
