Eurolinks - Metallic Ammunition Links for Belting Small and Medium Calibre

Top eurolinks

For almost 60 years, major international ammunitions manufacturers have trusted Eurolinks - SIPR Defense for the supply of metallic links for belting small and medium calibre cartridges.

Eurolinks-SIPR Defense manufactures all types of links for 5.56mm, 7.62mm, 12.7mm (.50cal), 20mm, 23mm, 25mm, 27mm, 30mm and 35mm caliber rounds, as well as links for 40mm grenades for automatic launchers.

Each of our links is specifically designed to suit a specific weapon and ammunition, ensuring continuous fire and smooth feed. We also supply accessories, such as cartridge clips and insertion strips for fast and simple loading of the belt.

Our metal forming expertise comes through implementing progressive follow-up dies and high-speed, multi-slide, cutting-bending machines. This is combined with heat and surface treatment and in-house, integrated installations, fully automated at all stages of production.

Our complete inventory of quality inspection equipment and gauges enable us to provide the highest quality and service to ISO 9001-2008 standard and NATO STANAG and US MIL specifications.
