About us

INSTALAZA is a privately-owned company located in Spain. We employ more than 150 highly qualified people distributed in three facilities situated in Zaragoza and with commercial activities in more than 35 countries around the world.

We have been developing Weapon Systems for more than 65 years. Our aim is to become the best possible partner for the infantry soldier.

Safety, Reliability and Performance are the basis for the design, development and manufacture of our products.

Our history

Founded in 1943, our company started activities in the defense sector in 1951, creating our own Research and Development Department and acquiring the necessary manufacturing infrastructure for our finalised products. This process, completed in 1957, was the origin of what INSTALAZA is today, a company that makes use of the latest technologies and materials available in order to provide our customers the safest, most reliable and best performing products in the market.

Some of our inspection equipment used during the design and manufacturing of our products are:

  • 3D-Coordinate measuring machines
  • Universal testing machines
  • Hardness testing instruments
  • Specific equipment for measuring the axial symmetry of warheads and motors, dimensional control of subsystems and complete systems and other related measurements.
  • Metallography
  • Gelation study
  • Optronics test benches
  • Dark chamber for optronics tests

Testing of complete systems and their components and subsystems, from design and development to final verification, are carried out in our ballistics laboratory sited near Zaragoza. It is equipped and instrumented for the totality of Tests and Trials, both static and dynamic (Interior, Launching, Exterior and Terminal Ballistics), applicable to INSTALAZA’s whole product range.
