A company contacted us because their unreliable motor-driven catch was no longer fit for purpose. We were asked to produce a dependable, user-friendly and cost-effective method of operating the firing pin. This pin would then launch a dummy for the dog to retrieve as part of a gun dog training program.

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.
