Defense Tools that Outlast and Outperform

High-production runs for the defense industry put a heavy demand on tooling. Bunter tool stamps can become imprecise and erode over time, and draw punches can wear down and break.

But not all ammunition tooling is created equal. Wilson Tool International’s patented bunter manufacturing process can increase bunter longevity by as much as 500 to 800 percent, and our tool design expertise creates draw punches that can last over 3,000,000 hits.

See the Patented Bunter Process

A patented bunter manufacturing process creates a tighter bond at the molecular level, creating a significantly more precise, more resilient head stamp. See how below:

Still Going after 3,000,000 Hits

These draw punches have been known to last for millions of hits, in some cases. You might wonder how they get to be so strong. The key isn’t the steel, or the design, though those are important. It’s the collaboration between manufacturers and our tooling technicians that makes the outcome stand so far above the rest.

One-Stop Shop for Ammo Tooling from the Global Leader

Manufacturers select from a variety of bunters, punches, dies, ejectors, knockouts and machine components to stock their defense tooling storehouse.

What’s Challenging about Ammunition Manufacturing?

Aside from the stringent quality requirements of the military and law enforcement, manufacturing premium casings is exacting due to the malleability of the brass material, the difficulties of imprinting letters with a bunter or head stamp, and the possibility of tool wear and failure inherent in the stamping process. How do you deal with these challenges? Read on to learn.
