PAMA's SpeedRam 1000 floor-type boring and milling machine delivers the high speeds, feeds, and accuracy needed for applications in the energy, aerospace, and heavy equipment industries.

The SpeedRam 1000's head is supported by hydrostatic guideways that ensure speed and precision in cutting.


High precision, high torque, and fast feeds and speeds are the hallmarks of the SpeedRam 1000 floor-type boring and milling machine. According to manufacturer PAMA, machines as large as the SpeedRam are often plagued by deflection of the headstock, ram, and accessories caused during the traverse of moving masses. This isn't the case with the PAMA machine, which employs an automatic counterbalance system to compensate for any deflection.

A special spindle-monitoring system that offsets thermal growth and an enclosed ram with hydrostatic guideways on four sides are two other key features contributing to machine accuracy.

The machine tackles high-speed machining of steel and light alloys and is well-suited for aerospace, energy, and heavy-equipment applications. The flexible system can be equipped with a variety of accessories including PAMA's rotary tables (loading capacities from 20 to 200 ton) and auxiliary heads (vertical, universal, tilting, and bore facing heads). Users may also opt for automatic head changers and chain or rack-type tool magazines.

In addition to these features, PAMA offers a remote diagnostic system that lets the builder monitor machine status, suggest preventative maintenance, and provide technical instruction and service.
