One Person's Trash is a Big Cat's Pleasure

Loren Johnson, from Butler Mill Services requested to re-purpose the wooden crane cable spool from the drop ball crane for an animal sanctuary in the local community. These spools are usually waste products after the crane cable is installed on the drop ball crane.

COVID Hygiene Stations

IFS in Indiana created COVID Hygiene Stations to help keep their employees safe. The Levy Technical Lab in Indiana liked the idea, so they did the same.

Lending a Helping Hand

New at Donze

In June, Donze teamed up with Levy Engineering and Indiana Flame Services to trial a new oxy cutting nozzle at US Steel Gary Works. The new nozzle was able to produce a cut with a kerf width as narrow as 3.5mm on cold, medium carbon slabs. Kerf is the distance remaining between two cut pieces of steel slab. It indicates the amount of material removed or melted away by the oxy cutting process. This is an important measurement because a 1mm kerf reduction on average, means a yield loss savings to a steel producer of approximately $200,000 per 500,000 tons cut.
