Lean Process Shellcase Induction Annealing
Lean Manufacturing Annealing Process for Ammunition Manufacturing — Vista Outdoor ammunition is supplied to law enforcement, who face life and death situations. A properly heat-treated shell is crucial to ensure proper ammunition performance. Instead of using a batch oven process, we are designing a product that uses induction technology to anneal shell cases faster and more efficiently.
