Metron Actuator Application Case Study

The power within a Metron is generated when pyrotechnic materials undergo an incredibly rapid expansion within milliseconds of receiving an electrical impulse. Metrons lend themselves to many instantaneous safety, or reliability critical uses. Some of these applications are described below.

Aerospace & Defence

Our Metrons provide safety critical capability for Boeing aircraft oxygen release systems through to the Martin Baker ejection seats on NATOs fighter aircraft.

Client Testimonials

Our satisfied clients

‘CEUK has a range of explosive engineering products which are world class, innovative and easy to use. They are our supplier of choice for this type of product.’

M. Morgan

M. Morgan

“We need to know that our systems will work as and when they are required. That’s why we have a long-lasting and stable relationship with Chemring.”

Per Kindwall

Per Kindwall, Strategic Buyer

“Removing the potential and expectation of a reward is always the best security measure. In order to irreversibly degrade cash, the physical properties – i.e. size and weight – of the banknotes need to be changed. The reliability and instantaneous reaction of the Metron are fundamental to the effectiveness of GlueFusion.”
