Our customer is a manufacturer of gun dog training aids and they were struggling with their unreliable motor-driven catch which was no longer fit for purpose. We were asked to produce a dependable, user-friendly and cost-effective method of operating a firing pin, which then launches a dummy for the dog to retrieve.

NSF Controls developed and tested size 3E rotary solenoids, operating on a spring-loaded plunger, as it had to withstand significant recoil forces. We also incorporated a release lever and return spring support to provide resilient mounting within the assembly.

The end result was a reliable, robust solenoid that could withstand the recoil force of the launcher without mechanical failures.

For custom-designed solenoids for your application, contact us on +44(0)1535 661144 or email us enquiries@nsfcontrols.co.uk.
