Medical devices save lives. But only if every component works perfectly … every time. For more than 150 years, we’ve made precision parts that people depend on. Let’s take a look at yours.
Of all the ways to shape metal, the only one to shape it while making it stronger and more durable is forging. That’s what makes our products known for their strength and durability: our expertise in forging steel, stainless, aluminum and scandium into tough, long-lasting components.
The same piece of metal can be soft and malleable, resilient and springy or hard enough to carve stone. It is tuned by carefully controlled heat treating. The longevity and dependability of Smith & Wesson products are due, in part, to our heat treating facilities and skills.
Metal finishing operations — oxide coatings, plating, blasting and tumbling —can protect components from corrosion, enhance their function and make them more beautiful. Our skill in plating and finishing operations is easy to see in our firearms — and in the components we finish for manufacturers like you.
Advances in materials and in molding and toolmaking technology have opened virtually endless possibilities for injection-molded plastic components. We offer complete rapid prototyping, tooling and injection molding services — from the most common to the most exotic engineered resins.
