High-Volume Steel Processor Realizes a Win-Win Situation by Installing Heavy-Gauge Stretcher Leveler

Restoration Of Copper Crucibles Proves To Be A Growing Business

If you’ve been in the Butech Bliss facility recently it’s likely that you’ve noticed copper being fabricated or machined. The copper-based melting equipment repair and replacement business has been steadily growing and gaining new customers. Butech Bliss has been able to utilize talents amongst our employees to service an industry that has sorely needed a reliable supplier over the last several years. The melting or “re-melting” of many specialty or exotic metals often takes place under controlled conditions inside of a water-cooled copper vessel. These vessels are typically a key part of melting systems known as VAR (Vacuum Arc Remelt), ESR (Electro-Slag Remelt), PAM (Plasma Arc Melting) and EBM (Electron Beam Melting)...
