Our laboratory powder guns are intended in particular for stakeholders in the military sector, for whom the storage and handling of powder is not problematic. The use of powder allows a powerful release of energy within a few milliseconds, enabling our powder guns to launch relatively heavy projectiles over a short distance at impact speeds in the order of 2 to 2.7 km/s (single-stage gun), and up to 8.5 km/s (two-stage gun). We also custom-design the firing-range chamber, which is able to accommodate the most sophisticated metrology equipment.
Our aim ? Enable you to study the behaviour of your materials subjected to high-speed impacts with the best equipment on the market.
