McAlester Army Ammunition Plant's (MCAAP) new RAM 55 H

The McAlester Army Ammunition Plant (MCAAP) in McAlester, Oklahoma has announced the final installation of a revolutionary new RAM 55 H mixing system. McAlester expects the RAM 55 H to ramp up 6X-10X capacity increases and 3X-7X cost reductions in its ammunition production facilities. The RAM 55 H is powered by innovative ResonantAcoustic® Mixing “RAM” technology, which uses the physics of resonance to thoroughly, but gently mix explosive formulations safely.

RAM 55 H Dramatically Increases McAlester PBX Production Capacity while Cutting Costs by Eliminating of Purging and Post-Cure Machining
Manufacturing plastic bonded explosive (PBX) into nearly final shapes (near-net-shape) instead of machining from cylindrical shapes reduces costs 2/3, over $1000 per part. Near-net-shape techniques on a smaller Resodyn RAM 5 H have already helped McAlester save taxpayers over $20 Million.
