Jumbo Bloom Vertical Caster Reaches One-Year Anniversary

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the first heat at our jumbo bloom vertical caster. The caster team at Faircrest Steel Plant has achieved many significant project milestones over the last year.

We’ve manufactured close to 70 different grades of our clean steel on the caster. We also recently sent our first caster trial order to an international customer. Our steel has reached distribution, oil and gas, industrial and automotive customers.

Earlier this year, the caster won the American Metal Market award in the “Best Innovation: Process” category. And Industrial Heating magazine called the caster “a ballet of human ingenuity, mechanical prowess and exquisite timing.”
