May 19, 2016 was a momentous occasion at the Holtec Technology Campus in Camden, NJ. On that day, the first crane girder was installed – the drive girder for a 200 Ton crane (shown in motion). Assembly was complete on May 26, 2016. This crane, produced by DMAG, is the first of 12 cranes to be installed on the campus – 3 x 200 Ton cranes, 9 x 50 Ton cranes. A total lifting capacity of 1050 Tons! More than any other facility in New Jersey and possibly the United States.
The PAMA Speedram, which will sit in Bay 4, is one of the machine tools being built for Camden. It is a dual tower, 6 Axis milling & drilling machine with a cutting envelope of 52’ L x 20’ H. Each rotary table has 100T Table capacity. It also features a 30” Gun Drilling Attachment. It’s Ram/ Quill ( Z+Z1) extends 8 feet. Impressively, it can machine 5 sides of a part with a single set-up.
The PAMA Speedram will bring unique machining capabilities to Holtec. There is not much this machine can’t do. We expect it to arrive January of 2017.
