Small Caliber Ammunition Modernization Program
I.M.I's 5.56mm/7.62mm SCAMP line has been in operation since 1980. The SCAMP line is a fully automated process which produces over a thousand cartridges per minute, providing IMI with a production capability in excess of 1.25 million cartridges per day. The SCAMP line was developed to enable production without manual handling between the stages of production. The line is completely computer controlled, and incorporates electronic gaging, assuring 100% inspection of the components and cartridges. Powder level of the assembled cartridges is measured on-line, radiologically, assuring that the propellant load in every cartridge is in accordance with specifications.
In 1997 IMI proudly marks the addition of a 9mm SCAMP line. With the start up of the new 9mm line, IMI takes its place at the forefront of 9mm cartridge manufacture, while continuing to maintain its position as a leading manufacturer of 5.56mm and 7.62mm cartridges.
