Abstract:

This project was initiated to develop an alternate, less costly manufacturing process for the M42M46 grenade metal parts. Several different manufacturing processes were independently investigated resulting in the conclusion that the warm backward extrusion process produced an equivalent grenade body while offering a significant reduction in cost. Keywords MMT- Process improvement.
