Abstract:

The overall objective of the proposal is to develop and demonstrate a recently developed metal treatment and combine it with alternative barrel designs. Dark Metal Technology (DMT) is a unique technology that provides a highly wear resistant and self-lubricious surface for finished steel parts in military weapons. DMT improves the performance of machine gun barrel steel by providing: Outstanding wear resistance, high lubricity, and anti-galling without increasing hardness for both low and high grade carbon steel alloys used in machine gun components. Maintain dimensionally stable parts, whose surface tolerances are unaffected, because there is no build up on surfaces from diffusion treatments. A process that can be used both on new parts and field service parts as well.
