Electric primer caps of RUAG Ammotec for medium calibre ammunition guarantee a high rate of fire, accuracy and reliability. By means of applying the so-called metal layer elements, RUAG Ammotec has developed a sophisticated technology, which is clearly superior to the conventional systems (gap primers and primers with bridge wire ignition) and thus sets new standards for the following generation of ammunition.
Primers and propellant charge igniters (with both mechanical and electric triggers) are available in many different designs. In addition to ignition chains for 30 mm ammunition, the product range of RUAG Ammotec includes also propellant charge igniters, e.g. 155 mm.
