We have worked with customers at steel mills on major redesigns and completely new ideas to improve their process, including oscillating side dams and sticker boxes. The oscillating side dams were a major redesign to an existing piece in the castrip process of making steel, where B&D had to design a way to “shake” the piece next to the pool of steel to prevent the steel from cooling and creating hard lumps. The sticker box functions as a sort of brake/guide for steel, and after working on it made several small redesigns to allow for easier tear down & maintenance at the mill.
