Repkon displayed the range of components produced for air platforms, missile/ammunition cases and barrels, all of which have been produced using indigenous forming technologies.

Developed in house and protected by worldwide patents, Repkon’s free flowforming technology permits the production of various parts with specific forms and geometries that could not previously be manufactured using conventional techniques.  Similarly, spirally grooved barrels that could not previously be created can now be shaped by Repkon’s free flowform technique.  Introduced to international markets as the first of its kind, the 40 mm grenade launcher barrel manufactured by Repkon based on an original design and formed by using the flowform technique have successfully passed field and laboratory tests conducted in line with NATO standards.  Repkon launched deliveries of its original design grenade launcher barrels at the end of last year.

The “rotational forging” approach utilises another Repkon technology, permitting the forming of materials in any shape (in hot or cold conditions).  Special solutions have been developed for the cold forming of 5.56 mm, 7.62 mm, 9 mm and 12.7 mm barrels for pistols, automatic machine guns and handguns.  Barrels with improved target stability and lifecycle parameters are manufactured with high precision, with the spiral groove sections and the breech section formed together in a single clamping.

Repkon is currently working on drag bombs (MK series) that are manufactured using a new generation hot spinning technology and (70 mm, 122 mm, 300 mm and 610 mm) short-, medium- and long-term rocket cases manufactured using flow form technologies, as well as 105 mm and 155 mm calibre shells and shafts
