Tronrud Engineering AS
Ola Tronrud founded Tronrud Engineering AS in 1977. Since then, the company has grown vigorously. Most of its earnings have been invested in further development of its human resources and technical facilities. Among a various range of tasks, defence equipment and services to the armed forces has been an important business for the company from far back in time. As a result of this the company have recruited former maintenance officers from the Norwegian armed forces technical crews. To day this kind of personnel makes up over 10% of our staff.
Your participation streamlines the process
Throughout the process, from the idea to the end product, we work in close cooperation with you. We choose this way of working to ensure that you get the optimal solution, fulfilling your wishes and military specifications for the product.
In cooperation with the customer and/or in our management we have done a broad range of research and development projects. With basis in a set of theories we work on by empirical methods, because we have learned that that is what putting ideas into practice is all about.
Design and engineering
All design is carried out using state of the art Cadsystems. We have worked with 3D-Cad since the early 90’s. We also use Cad to design electrical systems when these are a part of our projects.
Production of parts
An optimal combination between using manually and CNC controlled machinery are the strength of this department. The machinery equipment is in the cutting edge of today. We are using common welding techniques like TIG, MIG and MAG. This department also contain a workshop for sheet metal production.
Our software development staffs are highly skilled and have a long experience in programming and employing a wide range of systems.
Defence & Security
This department is established to serve this special category of customers and to employ the other departments to the best purpose of the projects. In the pictures of this presentation are some of our previous developed products for the defence and security market segment:
LUV weapon stand
The weapon stand is designed to carry a Ring Mount with Soft Mount and a 12,7mm machine gun. The stand is adaptable to all kinds mount’s and LUV’s (Light Utility Vehicles). The vehicles roll-over protection is an integrated function of the stand. The photo shows the stand on a ISAF vehicle with the Ring Mount, Soft Mount and the 12,7mm machine gun on top. From this configuration the LUV is ready for helicopter deployment in just a couple of minutes. The simple routine is to dismount the 12,7mm machine gun and the Soft Mount and tilting the top of the stand upside down. This configuration makes the LUV very low and enables it for deployment by driving directly in to a medium sized helicopter. When deployed, the “ready for combat routine” is carried out just as fast as the “ready for deployment routine”. The LUV weapon stand for MB 240 and MB 290 NATO stock # is: 2510-25-151-6395
Automatic Bore Cleaner
The Automatic Bore Cleaner (ABC) works both fast (≥300mm/sec) and quietly (≤70dB). The ABC works unattended while the Technical Crew is attending to other tasks. The ABC can save a parametric set-up for several CV’s and barrels to be selected when needed. For each CV set-up the operator can initiate the following programs: Oiling, Complete barrel cleaning program, Chamber cleaning program or Intensive barrel cleaning within a specified area in the barrel. The ABC can be mounted in a matter of minutes without the use of any tools. The ABC’s Nato stock #: 4933-25-152-4993
