State-of-the-art Manufacturing

With over 75,000 sq ft of manufacturing space across three modern facilities, Mec-Gar maintains a fully equipped metal stamping department including automatic presses, automatic seam-welding machines, and cutting edge robotic technology to assist in the stamping and welding process resulting in improved quality, tolerances, and output.
Mec-Gar magazines feature perfectly interchangeable components which are the result of the finest precision stamping, bending and drawing operations.

Our in-house heat treatment system monitors the entire process from the hardening step to the stress relief; all variables are kept under control so our parts comply to the tightest specifications.

Thousands of components are needed when manufacturing hundreds of different models of magazines: our skilled assembly department catalogs parts and assembles thousands of magazines daily.

With a professional in-house state of the art tool and die facility with experienced designers and toolmakers, we can offer product engineering support along with diversified prototype development.

Integrated CAD-CAM technology is employed at Mec-Gar in order to fabricate high precision compound and progressive dies, tools and gauges designed to meet the most stringent tolerance specifications.

Using the best materials is of paramount importance that is why we take into account tensile strength, elongation rate and chemical composition of all raw materials. Before materials are accepted into production they are carefully tested and checked. Our magazines are made from certified AISI 1010 Carbon Steel or from superior aircraft-grade 17-7 PH stainless steel.
